Fodor's Expert Review Casinha Velha

$$ Leiria Portuguese

In an old house with rustic Portuguese furniture, this eatery sits in a village that has long been a haven for gourmands. They bake their own bread on the premises—including a delicious pão chouriço—and there's a series of tasty starters. The menu includes a noteworthy bacalhau com natas (codfish with cream). Leave some room for the mixed dessert platter or for the brisa do Lis, a local almond pudding.
