“Best Italian in Niterói”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Sure this is the best Italian Restaurant in Niterói. They have a excellent Service and Wine List.
Begin withe the Bruschetas.

For the sequence, even lamb, fishes or risotos come perfect. I strongly recommend the risoto of guinea fowl ( which is stronger than chicken and partridge, but lighter than duck ). Look for Risoto de Faraona on Menu.

If you like Crème Brûlée, this is the place.

“Fantastic Italian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

The wine list is great - lots of different wines for all budgets. Our food was absolutely amazing - and we cannot wait to come back to taste more from the menu.
A few negative things:
Limited parking in the street. There are many restaurants in this street, and it can be difficult to find a place to park.
We had to walk inside and look for a waiter to seat us - no-one was at the door welcoming us.
It is quite cramped inside - and less than 30 cm between the tables.
All in all a very good restaurant with a few minuses in the book, but the fabulous food and wine weighs it all up, and the value for money is as good as it gets!
