Pasta, chicken, polenta, salad, cheese and dessert. The restaurant is popular with locals as it was full at lunchtime. The food was decent overall if nothing special. The rodízio menu costs R$53 plus drinks on top so it is mid-range in price and commensurate in quality.

Di Paolo is a chain of italian-style restaurant known by its quality. The chicken is prepared using a local recipe callled "primo canto". Its an all inclusive system that satisfies from couples to big families.

It's OK. Nothing more than that. It's a galeteria (italian chicken place) and the food is just avarage. Nothing special at all. Maybe if you are not used to the concept of having pasta, polenta, cheese, pork ribs and salad on your table (as much as you want) and having more pasta and chicken served whenever you want (which is...

Abusive prices for regular food! You can try other similar restaurants, have the same food, the same quality and for much lower prices.

This is a great restaurant in Gramado. Galeto costs about $47.00 BR Per person. We arrived with no reservation and they had a nice waiting area where they give you complementary bread and salami. The food was consistently great service was very attentive without being intrusive. I highly recommend this restaurant. Servers were really nice. In no way I saw... More

The food is good. A typical rural "Galeto a Primo Canto" that you can find anywhere around, but perfectly prepared, with some options exclusive to this chain. Yes, it is a chain, so that probably explains the constant quality in food and terrible service. The waiters are just long-faced unprepared rude guys. They all seemed like they were doing you...

Be sure to go there hungry, because you are going to eat a lot. The galeto is superb as well as the dishes that come along with it. It works in a "all you can eat system", which may sound as a mass produced food, but everything is very tasty and well prepared. The staff is friendly.

it works in the "cafe colonial" system (very frequent in Gramado area): after the moment when you are done with the (wonderful) ravioli soup, the rest of the menu is just brought to the table (and you can eat as much as you want for the same price). The food quality is excellent, and also the wine is _not_ overpriced.

Despite changing the name from Giuseppe to Di Paolo (which might bring some confusion) the food and the hospitality are great! You may have a typical local food by a reasonable price and it is close by all main attractions!
