Despite the French name, is actually a good Italian restaurant. We eat a good pizza but they have also fresh pasta, meat and fish. Be sure to order a limoncello after the meal.

Best pizza I've had in ages, right next to the waterfront. Props for not having catchup, which is a cancer in Brazilian civilization.

Nice atmosphere at the beach. One of us had pizza and it tasted like in Napoli, very good. 3 of us ordered the tagliata do peixe prepared in the pizza oven with vegetables. This was very good as well. The wine choice was small but we enjoyed the wine we chose from Chili. Staff is efficient, and friendly.

First to say, the service was good, the waitresses were fast and there is a really nice atmosphere. The pizza was real italian style with a thin crust and tasted really good, beside i don't know why there were eggs on my capriciosa.

We really enjoyed the pizza here, in fact we came back for a second meal. Unfortunately on our second trip, our experience was marred by the service. An extra R$120 was added to our bill. Not a huge amount, but obviously an attempt to take advantage of some tourists after a few drinks. Disappointing as our first experience was fantastic.

The pizza was good and the beer too. The waiters were kind and the live music was good, I go there every time I go to Morro de Sao Paulo.

Maybe we should have had a pizza seeing as that's what other reviewers seem to rate. But we had steak and fish. That fish was overlooked as was the steak... and service was slow. The accompaniments were fresh enough but pretty basic. All up, it was ok but a little disappointing given the tripadvisor ranking that's all.

Very thin, crust pizza! A lot of options of flavour, I really liked and recommend. A very pleasant place to dinner with friends.
