THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Casa Lisboa Restaurant Review

: Unlike several other Portuguese restaurants in Hartford, Casa Lisboa is a bit on the refined side: waiters wear bowties, tables wear white. Don't mistake this for fussiness. At Casa Lisboa they are simply the welcome niceties dispensed by a venerable city restaurant with a loyal following. Start your meal with the collard soup, a Sargasso sea of grassy greens studded with chunks of potato and spicy liguica sausage. Garlic soup is served with a quivering poached egg that when broken releases a golden cascade into pungent broth. If you're in the mood for salt cod, you won't go wrong with the flaked fish mixed with potato, onion and egg (a Portuguese comfort dish to be sure) or broiled hunks of bacalao smothered in onion sauce and topped with fried potatoes. The kitchen also makes more elegant dishes like tournedos of beef, grilled chicken, mixed seafood grill and lamb, but peasant food classics like the classic pork and clams are the reason Casa Lisboa has such a devoted clientele. We like seeing big families eating together and a waitstaff that treats guests like they're long-lost kin.
