A big restaurant in a great house! There are pasta in the front house and pizza in the background house! And the food is delicious!

Still a nice variety of pastas (a shame ours came overcooked), pizzas, in a nice setting for affordable price - cheaper than what you would spend in Itaipava for an Italian restaurant. The appetizer buffet by the kilo is well furbished, we loved it. Limited parking in front of the restaurant but you should manage to find a spot nearby.

You will find a very good pasta at Luigi, and a huge buffet of appetizers and snacks also. Nice located at an old historic house , Luigi is a very good option for dinning in Petropolis. And door to door they run Luigi Pizzas.
