Al sorts of Brazilian "foods" are served here. Good price, all-you-can-eat-restaurant, no catch, go, eat, get out.

With capacity for over 4.000 guests, this restaurant became a destination for all travelers going to Curitiba. With such high number of people, the menu is very limited offering only a handful of dishes. They compensate it by over serving quantities and excellent service, really excellent.

We came here with a friend who lives in Curitiba. Apparently, this place is an institution. We came mid-week so there was no wait, but I'm told the weekends, particularly Sundays, it is super busy. Food is Italian - the Brazilian version of it. Pastas, salad, gnocchi, this super amazing chicken liver thing (if you're into liver). Service is very... More

It was a pretty interesting experience sitting down and immediately having tons of food placed on your table without you needing to order. Staff then came around with more servings to offer you on your plate. It was all good food. Just wished they would have asked us for how many platters of the same types of food should be... More

Brazilian style Italian... eat until you drop! The staff is pleasant and attentive, serving almost too much too fast. The food was good and plentiful - chicken, beef, various pastas, potatoes and salad. This is not the place to go to linger over your romantic Italian meal, this is more of a faster, family atmosphere.

I've got impressed with the size of this restaurant and how is well run. We've been on Sunday for lunch and despite the crowd eating over there, we had to wait less than 10 minutes for a table. Food is just ok(all you can eat model) ,typical from this area and ok for small children. Don't come over here if... More
