There was nothing in the menu we've tried that I could say it was good. The pasta was overcooked, something unacceptable in a italian restaurant. The sauces were very simple and the portions were huge. The service is also bad. I really don't understand why they have a full house almost every weekend.

This is a rather conventional Italian restaurant, with no surprises with with an impeccable service and meals. Highly recommended for those who are not seeking for new tastes.

I've been to Massarela a couple times when visiting Maceió-AL and this is so far the best restaurant of town in my opinion. Food is always awsome, deserts are equally great and waitresses are all very efficient and polite. Can't wait to go back!!!

Try the delicious Gnocchi a La Bruno, with a sauce made of Vodka. Pastas serve two. For entree go for calabresa bread.

Ate here a couple of times. Food is good, not always typical Italian, but this is Brazil! Decor of the restaurant lovely - it is full of character, it's a very enjoyable setting. When we arrived at about 8.30pm we had choice of tables, but it very quickly filled up, and within 30 mins there was a queue of people... More

We were twice here. The food is consistently good trattoria-style fare, with good ingredients. The atmosphere is charming, nice although unseasoned service seems to be the norm even in holiday season with a full house and a waiting line outside in the veranda. The wine list is ok and the storage of the wine bottles seems to be amateurish at... More

Primarily Italian dishes, and all of it's fresh. Great appetizer dishes, from thin crust pizza to melt-in-your-mouth carpaccio, main dishes include a variety of polenta dishes (very good portions, enough for two), chicken and beef dishes. I'd highly recommend the Mignonette Cafe de Paris with your choice of freshly made pasta. If you like your beef rare, you REALLY need... More
