The place is rated good, looks quite nice and the services are ok. But: the portions are small. Really small. Like 50-60gr of pasta and some samples of meat, tomatoes or cheese... Could be better...

Pasta looked good and were delicious. The signature gambas with homemade sauce in pineaplle was also tasty but a bit too heavy in the end. The waiter and owner of the place is lovely and speaks, portuguese, spanish and italian.

We ordered pineapple stuffed with prawns and fettuccine with prawns and dendê sauce. Plain delicious. The food was perfectly cooked and beer extremely cooled. Surprisingly low price for such a delicious meal.

We had pasta and beef (filet steak with Gorgonzola spaghetti) and two other pasta dishes. They were all very good, as was the juice. The restaurant is cosy, with walls full of messages scribbled by guests - leave your own. One of the owners was there and the service was good too.

I wanted to eat steak and when I arrived I had to choose between Brazilian steaks (with sauce) or Argentinian steaks (without sauce). I went for the Brazilian one and it was sumptuous ! I will try the Argentinian steaks tomorrow !
