At this restaurant you can eat a good Italian food for a reasonable price and good service. We definitely want to go back there when we have a chance.

This restaurant was ranked as the best in trip-advisor, so we were very curious. Atmosphere was unbelievable cause just outside the restaurant a group of locals was singing creating a big buzz. Service was nice and friendly. The food was NOT GOOD! I heard that the owner died 3 years ago. Not anymore was it used to be! I would... More

We saw that this place was rated 2nd on Trip Advisor so we stopped in and enjoyed some excellent food. Wonderful ownership. Managers and servers were very friendly and lively. I tried the shrimp in pinapple dish that's featured in the photo and it was a lovely, unique thing to eat.

I like the meat,the beer and the caipirinha. The service was wonderful. I talked with the argentinian man that I supposed the manager. Very pleasant and interesting conversation about Morro and tips to know the island.

Very simple and cute restaurant located at the main Praça. Quite small/med sized, not a whole lot of tables, scenic view on the main place, writings on the walls (customer memorabilia, thank yous, etc). Nothing spectacular but the type of place that puts you at ease an makes you want to come back to. The Menu is simple but interesting.... More

We ate dinner here two nights because we loved it so much! The caipirinhas are strong and not too sweet and a deal at only R$6 (the island can be overpriced). The meals are large enough to share and very delicious - the seafood was incredibly fresh and the pasta was perfectly cooked. Also, service couldn't have been better! And... More
