Really good! Cheap, tasty and perfect serving!

This restaurant is strategically located beside the highway and serves italian food. There are all you can eat options as well as "a la carte". We asked for entrecot and half portion of pasta. Everything tasted delicious! The house wine is also really good! It worths try!

Traditional barbecue, many choices, great staff - wish it were closer to SFO! Will go again if I'm ever close.

Great food, fresh veggies, meats, hors-d'oeuvres, ambience and friendly people. Soup with mini-tortellinis was amazing. I won't mind if there were a bit less salt on everything, but that's a personal preference. Thank you!

Plentiful appetizers with fresh salad followed by solid main course. Balsamic roasted tomatoes were awesome! Barbeque prepared boar, filet, fish and others just keep coming. Wine selection is solid!

This restaurant serves traditional "colonial" style food, which means lots of dishes served family style. The service is casual and friendly. Eat a light lunch, if you are planning dinner here.

Our meal was great with a salad prepared fresh. The service was very good with much effort made to make you feel at home. Check upstairs for the wine and alcohol collection and other condiments.

There is nothing to dislike here, this place is as good as it is pretty. We had the Italian family service with bubbly. As always, the food comes until everyone stops it. Hold out until later in the service when the filet starts coming. No English; go with locals, or resolve yourself to point at menu's.

You may want to fast for a few days before coming here because there is so much food to try. The grilled meat is excellent although a bit salty (typical in Brazil). Be sure to pace yourself and save room for the prime meats that come toward the end of the meal. This restaurant is also very reasonably priced for... More

We were taken there by our Brasilian hosts, and not sure what to expect. Well we had a really good lunch, there is a set menu, starting with a pasta soup which is delicious, then a whole selection of different grilled meats and sausages, and then a choice of pasta courses. A really enjoyable feast, and you can pick and... More

My wife and I have been here twice in the past year. It is the best cantina-style Italian restaurant that we have found in the Bento Gonçalves area. If you are hungry, this is the place to come. They have a couple all-you-can-eat options that are pretty reasonably priced for the quality that you get. The galeto primo canto is... More
