We liked Rosario everytime we went there , the service is great, and the food also is. Last time we ate there however, my husband didn't enjoy his dish, it was plain and not memorable - I think it was fettucini with lamb ragú. Mine was very good, a piece of lamb with risotto. The bacallà was a litlle dry... More

Have been here several times since we moved to Brasilia and at first I thought it was going to be a regular treat. But the last couple of times have been just ... ordinary. I'm used now to crazy high prices in Brazilian restaurants but this last time I paid roughly R$200 for a (very good) carpaccio and two pretty... More

I have been at Trattoria a few times and the food is always excellent. Service is very good most the times, but we had a very bad experience over there at least once, when the waiter didn´t allowed us to take a seat where we wanted and the restaurant was empty. It was a week day and he said all... More

This is my favorite Italian place in a city full of good ones. The service is excellent, but it will cost quite a few Brazilian reais. Perfect place for good food and to relax, if you are willing not to save money.

Very good food, elegant place, high prices. Located in Lago Sul (South Lake), some 15km from downtown.

Trattoria da Rosario is excellent. Great food and friendly service. The wine list is kind of limited and very expensive, but wines are overtaxed in Brazil and therefore expensive.

Very expensive. The food is great, though. Rosario take care of it personally. The atmosphere isn't the best for a happy and informal dinner. There's always lots of politicians and business men there. The service is kind of cold. Despite polite, servants don't make you feel special. I like to be pampered! Anyways, the visit is worth it, especially because... More

Well, the food is superb at Rosario and the atmosphere quite swish. I like the easy parking in a quiet mini-shopping block just off the Lago Sul main avenue. It is now very "in" with politicians, rich businessmen, celebrities etc and in the evenings bustling with ...the nouveau "in-crowd" - diamonds, BMWs, Volvos, Mercedes...the lot. If you feel you can... More

The best italian restaurant and if you're lucky the chef Rosario himself might come to your table to check if everything is ok.

Trattoria da Rosario is the plave to go if you want to be seen. It has a very fashionable, well-dressed crowd, obviously wealthy Brazilians. The food is quite good, but not the best Italian in Brasilia. Try Cantina da Massa, 302 SUl: it's more modest, more of a neighborhood place where you can wear your jeans.. and the food is... More
