I've got impressed with the size of this restaurant and how is well run. We've been on Sunday for lunch and despite the crowd eating over there, we had to wait less than 10 minutes for a table. Food is just ok(all you can eat model) ,typical from this area and ok for small children. Don't come over... read more

Traditional restaurant of Curitiba, located in the neighborhood Santa Felicidade, gastronomic zone, internationally known. Typical Italian food with very Brazilian flavor. Every day open for lunches and dinners. You can prove chicken, pasta etc. Joy, abundance of food and noise typical of Italian families. It's a beautiful place. Also, is the bigger restaurant of latina america.

Madalosso depicts what a tourist trap means... All fame and glory, and that's it! It's a big, big restaurant mixed with souvenir shops and wine cellar. Food is just awful! Fried chicken wings with garlic, cold and gummy pasta of all kinds (but all cold and gummy), and noisy. If you like paying a lot for bad food, that's a... More

A high price for mediocre food and a really small variety of dishes. It used to be better years ago, but nowadays I highly suggest not to spend your money here.

Didn't take too much time to get in, the place is huge. The quality is great, but there is lack of options. It was supposed to be 'all you can eat' pasta restaurant, but there is no many pasta options. The price is ok.

Must go. Simple yet delicious Italian food - Mainly fried chicken, fried polenta, salad and pasta. And it's the biggest restaurant in the world according to the Guiness book.
