One of the best pizzas in town

This is definetly one of the best pizzas in Florianópolis! It's definetly mandatory place to go for pizza lovers (and who isn't one?) and it's a perfect place to go with your family as well as for a romantic dinner for two. There are many different options and some very original ones. There are 2... read more

I still don't get what people find in this place. I had to go twice in a week and both time my experience was the same. It's expensive and the pizza it's a joke, unless you enjoy eating pizza with a crust thin as a paper, and mostly burnt. Ths toppings are not that good or even abundant. In sum,... More

It is a beautiful place. The pizza is not the best one I have tried in my life but it is fine. The staff were not kind to us. I felt a little bit of prejudice atmosphere there....

This is one of my favorite places in Florianopolis, the pizza is great and there are several unique creations, the service is also good but what I love the most is the clean and cozy atmosphere. It is located in Downtown, with no valet service, so if you are driving, you may spend a little time for a nice parking... More

The food was good and the dessert was fantastic. The place overall is excellent. We were waited by Javier whom was outstanding in his service, he tried to speak my language as soon as we walked at the door, he also showed great ability to take feedback when we had a small issue with sparkling water that was not sparkling...

I've been very disappointed with pizza in Brazil because, for my tastes, it has too much of a cracker-tasting crust, no sauce, and way too much cheese. Forneria Catarina claims to make authentic pizzas, and it's definitely much closer. Still not enough sauce and a bit too much cheese, but the crust is outstanding and made in a wood-fired oven....

I loved this pizza restaurant. The room itself is contemporary and very comfortable, especially as we witnessed a torrential downpour minutes after being seated. The pizzas themselves were delicious and very large. It is possible to order half/half, so it is possible to try some of the different combinations. We tried the Portuguesa and the Rústica and I loved both.... More
