The doorman stopped me from entering and I explained him that I... More

Food was okay, the carpaccio was good but the service took forever. Come here if you have time to spare, they took one hour for an appetizer!! Ask for the bill early. But i noticed they had lots of takeaway, they should prioritize the customers in the restaurant

I was very surprised with this place. They make very good tomato sauce based dishes but disappointing seafood ones. The Matriciana sauce is really incredible! And you must try this Buffalo Mozarella, it is really great.

the food was fantastic and reminded me of real italian cooking in italy. i will come back here over and over again. the seafood was simply delicious and i cant wait to try more soon. I dont know why this place is not in the top 10 of best restaurants in Fortaleza it surely is my number 1 so far.

Don't go If is too full, you will wait ages before to be served, 20 minutes for the drinks and 50 for one pasta on the upper floor with air condition. May be faster service If you eat on lower floor but you will be feeling like in a sauna as it is open place.

- Delicious food, especially pizzas with thin crust and pastas (you should try the "Linguine Alla Mediterranea"...) - Great service, waiters are smiling, attentive but never intrusive. - There are 3 different areas: a non-smoking one upstairs with AC - classy but not cosy, a smoking one upstairs outsides on the balcony, and another non-smoking one downstairs with a nice...

Service is ok. Atmosphere is not really italian. Food is good, but in the average if compared with other italian restaurantes in town. The wine was too cold. They probably store it in a fridge.

The food is very good and prices are fair. The restaurant itself is very simple but the service is good and the quality of the food makes it worth.
