among all restaurants we decided to come back to 'da cidade' a second time due to the tasty dishes and it was absolutely amazing. We tried the fish at first and meat in the second time, despide of the restaurant being recognized by pizza. We strongly recommend! The owner offered us a free colorful shot, a very pleasant and eccentric... More

The food is great, the atmosphere is nice, prices are reasonable and the service is excellent! We stayed in Paraty for 5 days and we ate at Da Cidade 3 times!

Excellent restaurant among the old streets of Paraty. Known for having delicious pizzas, they have other excellent dishes. I ordered a fish fillet covered in shrimp sauce, and it was amazing, so tasty. And the price was a true bargain. Don't let yourself be fooled by other place with fancy decoration and expensive dishes. ;)

Located in the old town of Paraty this restaurant serves amazing Pizza. They're huge though so either you'll have to be very hungry or share them with a starter. The owner, well he's something to look at ;-), but extremely friendly and forthcoming and speaks English and Spanish fluently. In the end he gave us a shot for free.

This pizzeria is usually packed , but I think it was a little early when we went so we got a choice of a few tables . Cutely decorated, so many vegetarian ( and meaty ) options that it was hard to choose. We did a a half of the garlic and simple margarita . Both were so good on... More

Picked this restaurant through sheer luck and we were glad we did. The manager/owner? Was very welcoming and we were given free starters of delicious salad to share. Some of us shared a bruscetta which was delicious. The pizzas are huge and unless you are ravenous could be shared by two. The pasta was also tasty and my mojito was... More

I went there with my wife and her mother. We ordered a pizza and less than 20 minutes later it got to our table. The pizza was really good, but the garlic olive oil was a real killer. What a good touch. It was evening at around 7 pm when we get there on a Saturday and the place was... More

We were looking to eat dinner when suddenly the owner of restaurant offered us to come in and try out there. Definitely we weren't mistaken and the meals were fantastic, served by the owner himself. Simply excellent !

Heard great things about this place so we arrived with great expectations - what a disappointment. House was packed and they kept jamming people in, kids pizza came with dough undone and half of what we ordered would never show up if we haven't begged for food.
