I have been a client of Galeteria Di Paolo for more than 15 years. A “galeto” is a 650g griller barbecued over carvão de madeira. You shall find “galeterias ( restaurants that serve only galeto) in Rio Grande do Sul state in places where the Italian immigration was preponderant. A galeto meal... read more

More expensive than it should be, this is a restaurant chain in the area. The food is reasonable, nothing special. The tortéi, which is a kind of filled pasta is the best dish. I had a squash filled one with funghi sauce which was pretty delicious. The food comes out really fast but the location I went to was nice,... More

Good italian food in a cool place. Considerate staff. It's not cheap, but you buy to eat a excellent pasta and chicken.

This restaurant came heavily recommended by staff at our hotel. There recommendations were spot on because this was an excellent meal. Probably the only meal in Brazil I had were there was no beef on the menu but after getting that so often the change was nice. The chicken they have here is extremely tasty. Very different than what we... More

we went for lunch, two adults and three kids, in a really rainy day, so we didn't have space to keep wondering for a restaurant. Even the restaurant was full and we had to wait for a table, there was a kid's space that helped a lot. We only waited for about 20 mins. The service is fast, the food... More

The award comes from the 4 Rodas magazine and is... More

O galeto é bom? Sim. Porém o restaurante é muito caro pelo que oferece. Sopa de capelete, salada de folhas, salada de batatas, radicchio, macarrão caseiro. Ah, e polenta taste-free: totalmente sem sabor. 3 opções de sobremesa, a saber, sagu com vinho, pudim de leite ou ambrosia. Isso, mais uma garrafa de vinho gaúcho, nos custou R$ 202,00 (4 pessoas).... More
