We had delicious thin crust pizza here. Service great and food delicious. We both struggled to finding a whole pizza. My husband got the large and I got the small.

Had the Calabrese pizza (39 real). Crust was nice, not enough sauce and mediocre ingredients. I believe that it may be the best pizza on the island, just be sure to keep your expectations in check. Well priced and tasty capirinhas (8 real).

We had a ice dinner at this restaurant. We had good pizza here. Did not order any other restaurant favorites. It was recommended by our Pousada manager and the place did not disappoint. Good live music as well. Overall will recommend. Only reason for 4* was that hot sauce we order was either gone bad or had terrible taste. Nice... More

Despite the French name, is actually a good Italian restaurant. We eat a good pizza but they have also fresh pasta, meat and fish. Be sure to order a limoncello after the meal.

Best pizza I've had in ages, right next to the waterfront. Props for not having catchup, which is a cancer in Brazilian civilization.

Nice atmosphere at the beach. One of us had pizza and it tasted like in Napoli, very good. 3 of us ordered the tagliata do peixe prepared in the pizza oven with vegetables. This was very good as well. The wine choice was small but we enjoyed the wine we chose from Chili. Staff is efficient, and friendly.

First to say, the service was good, the waitresses were fast and there is a really nice atmosphere. The pizza was real italian style with a thin crust and tasted really good, beside i don't know why there were eggs on my capriciosa.

Thank jag911
