Best polenta on earth

Saturday lunch in Curitiba and this is the classic way to go. Huge restaurant with a fixed menu and a quick and efficient service. The food is good and you can eat as much as you want. The polenta is the best on earth! An experience not to be missed!

A great place for special occasions. It is a little bit expensive, but very much worth your money. The best italian food in the city. The staff is very helpful. Do arrive early, specially with small children or the elderly, because it gets crowded, and it takes long to get a seat!

Very big and beautiful. It's one of the best Italian restaurants located in Santa Felicidade. Their consistency impresses me! Year by year, great food and great service! Polenta frita is one of my favorite in there!

This is one of the largest restaurants in the world! For this alone, it is worth the visit. The food though, not so impressive. The dishes are mainly fried chicken, lasagna, pasta, and polenta- all served family style. The restaurant is located in a old Italian colony surrounded by several other large Italian restaurants. Great experience, not so great food.

But, wow, the polenta fries were amazing. The first thing they do is deliver several plates of different foods from potato salad, chicken wings, polenta fries, green salad, beef, etc. They then come by to serve you the pasta dishes - you choose which to eat. There is an abundance of food. The service never stops. And the service itself... More

It's been more than 20 years since I first visited Madalosso Restaurant! What really impresses me is the consistency through out the years... It is always the same (thanks God)! Food is good, price is fair, service is awsome!

I was in Curitiba two weeks ago and visited the Italian Neighborhood Santa Felicidade who has many restaurants of which Madalosso has a great reputation. There are two of them: the Old Madalosso and the new one just across the street. I had lunch at the new one which is big and it was busy. There was a good atmosphere... More

Madalosso is a famous restaurant in the state of Parana, but not in Brazil in general. Its fame is justified by the delicious food, good service, huge structure and beautiful people. I don't know exactly how many times I've been there, but all the time I come back it's fantastic. Its garlic fried chicken wings is something amazing! Madalosso also... More

With the best garlic chicken wings in the world. Oh my, they were good. Great wine selection as well. The place packs out on Sundays, they can seat almost 5000! That's right, not a typo, 5000! Yet still great food and service. Remember to cross the way for a complimentary cafezinho with whipped creme after your meal. Wonderful way to... More
