A great Italian tratoria

Torninha offers a refined, interesting and elaborate menu. Pasta features high in the menu, but you can get all types of meat as well. The dessert menu is worth special mention, with very creative swwets. The wine list is excellent and service is attentive, knowledgeable and friendly.

The best restaurant in Niterói in my opinion. They have very nice starters and breads. There is a variety of pasta dishes and they always use fresh ingredients. For the meat and sea food dishes, I can only tell that my husband loves the sea food risotto and lamb dishes, since I am a vegetarian. Excellent choice.

Best restaurant in town, for sure. We use to go, at least, once a month for our Friday night happy hour and dinner.

Nice atmosphere, close to Icarai beach. Service is pleasant and food is good. A large menu with many options focused on Italian. A little on the pricey but nice.

Located in the heart of Garden Icaraí (Niteroi City) is in a nice house. The service is excellent with very attentive staff. The menu is mainly Italian cuisine. The dishes are tasty and the price is fair and consistent with the service and great cuisine.

You can try several options from the starters to main dishes and desserts... The price is decent and you really get what you expect to. Contrary to some other places it won't take too long to get your order served!

Sure this is the best Italian Restaurant in Niterói. They have a excellent Service and Wine List. Begin withe the Bruschetas. For the sequence, even lamb, fishes or risotos come perfect. I strongly recommend the risoto of guinea fowl ( which is stronger than chicken and partridge, but lighter than duck ). Look for Risoto de Faraona on Menu. If... More

The wine list is great - lots of different wines for all budgets. Our food was absolutely amazing - and we cannot wait to come back to taste more from the menu. A few negative things: Limited parking in the street. There are many restaurants in this street, and it can be difficult to find a place to park. We... More
