Brazil seems to be full of pizza and pasta restaurants, not Italian restaurants. There is a difference. Brazilian pizza and pasta restaurants, food wise , are a bit bland and missing the Italian herb taste. The pizza i had here was not thin and crispy...More

Straightforward Italian on the main drag but differentiates itself by specialising in gnocchi which are very good. There are a couple of good vegetarian options and the food and service are good.

Primitivo is a good restaurant at rua das Pedras. It is a italian cousine and there are good options for 2 people share. They have their own wine label called Primitivo from the Brazilian vineyards Pizzato. It is a good choice.

Hi Hans ! Primitivo is just a good Restaurant located in Búzios. I think there is no transportation from GIG till there provided. The trip takes about 3 hours (160 km distance).
