“A little piece of Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Try the 'cooking stone' where you cook your own meat or fish at your table. Excellent! And the pasta dishes were superb too. We were picked up from our hotel and dropped back there at no extra cost (although we did top the driver).

“Hit and miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

My husband had a plate of spaghetti with soft shelled crab which was delicious and so flavourful. My choice of fried squid and prawns was less successful because they came in batter which I'm not keen on. OK but probably wouldnt rush to go back there.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Cozy atmosphere were real Italian food is served. The owners, Patrizia and Fabio make you feel home with their friendly and warm Italian charm and hospitality. The food is excellent and one evening is not enough to appreciate fully the experience. Thank you Fabio and Patrizia! We will come back!!

“Best place to eat in Boa Vista!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

Located in the center of Sal Rei, just a fiew steps from the port. The owners are Italian and you can see this from the warm welcome and great food! The place is simple and cozy, great attention and service. The plates are very well presented, clean and professional and with a very great combination of taste. It was the second time we have been there and it seems it only gets better every time! As starter a mixed platter of fresh seafood carpaccio and goat cheese. Main course was a delicious grilled lobster with side dishes and vegetables. We accompanied our meal with a bottle of white wine CHÃ Fogo, this wine comes from the nearby island of Fogo, grapes grow on the skirts of the volcano. If you go to Boa Vista, you must eat here!
