Best italian food in Fortaleza

We went for lunch and found an elegant restaurant with good service and excellent food. For a person with experience in good italian dishes this was a nice experience due to the quality of products used for making the dishes along with good presentation. I recommend it greatly.

I went to Pulcinella restaurant located on Virgílio Tavora Av.. I decided to choose "antipasti by the kilo". The parmegianna eggplant is a good choice. However, please verify the weight of the empty plate in order to avoid surprises. Otherwise you shall pay extra grams for a plate without food. Besides, extra-virgen olive oil looks and tastes like water. There... More

Pulcinella is a traditional italian restaurant, one of the few that has over 10 years os good service. It is a bit pricey, but the overall quality is good, and service is usually excellent. Pasta dishes are the best. It has also a sushi bar (a plague in Brazil), but I never tried it's quality, as I don't know what... More

It's a good option to change from seafood. The menu is wide, with a big variety of dishes. The food was good, and the prices are reasonable. Many dishes are for 2 people. The deserts are good as well, with a good selection. The service was ok, but the waiter wasn't very friendly. The setting is nice, and to sit... More

very nice atmosphere, with indoor and outdoor tables. The food is perfect. I've been there twice in a week and was a great choice. Price is high comparing to Fortaleza level, but worth it. they have buffet for the entree and the main dishes a la carte.
