We started off as a table for 3 but ended up 17. We had travelled to porto seguro for my niece's wedding, we thought we would have a quite dinner for 3 at a recommended restaurant ( by a local) over an hour we were spotted by the rest of the bride's family and ended up 17. The staff did... More

I have been coming to this place even before I had my first cell phone. You can either go for the famous PF prato feito, or for my favourite Filet ao Poivre... Meat with a spice cream sauce... It's not the cheapest arround, but it's worth every penny for this home made family cooking

A good place for a basic dinner. The fried gnocchi were great, but the rest of our meal was just okay. Chicken parmigiana was good, but seafood was a miss. The service was pretty casual. They will not come to your table to take your order or check on your drinks until you waive at them multiple times. Service is... More

Even though they specialize in Italian fare we had great rice and beans withbeef. The gnocchi was light and fluffy with a red sauce that was like I was at my grandparents house.great location and good food.

Was surprised when we learned it was mostly gnocchi. But we were hungry so ordered anyway... It was wonderful!! The menu was original and selections were enjoyed by all of our party of four. A nice change of pace.

We came to try the fried gnocchi. We arrived and it was a little crowded but there are 3 tables in the front part just for snacks so we decided to take one of those. The gnocchi is actually breaded fried and served with a shoyu and onion sauce and parmesano cheese. It's good. The restaurant is cute and the... More

We went in a group of 3 and we're advised to order 2 dishes as the plates were big. We asked for recommendations and they said: manguti and creme de Leite gnocchi. We went with it and could barely eat the latter, it was disgusting. It was explained as cream and soy sauce. REALLY???

I had been to this restaurant once before and loved it (we had a fillet that tasted delicious), however, our second visit was not so pleasing. We had a "fish moqueca" and a "buttered fish" - the buttered fish was served with some tasty sautéed potatoes and was ok (nothing impressive). The moqueca (a saucy Brazilian dish usually made with...
