Food at Primitivo was great - I highy recommed the Nhoque de Banana da Terra. Prices are not cheap, but it’s worth for the quality of the dishes. Pasta was well served for one person. Good wine/veer options.

Great experience, really friendly owner Mauro from Italy who speaks English, had a great dish I’ve never tried before: the gnocchi Primitivo with a sauce of mustard, thyme, leeks with mozzarella and Parmesan then baked which was super tasty and unique!

We skipped starters, had some diet drinks with a bottle of malbec with a pasta and pizza main course, total came to a good value £60GBP. Glad we didn't get starters, the mains were massive.

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).
