Josephina's is unlike any other restaurant in Gramado. The extensive menu offers a wide variety of traditional Italian, German and Brazilian entrees with a contemporary flair. The evening we dined there, they offered 9 types of risotto alone. We tried 3 of them and they were terrific.

They prepare everything en casa: they bake the bread which is heavenly and the desserts are delicious. They have amazing brownies but I recommend the cheesecake with blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries.

Excellent wine and beer list, too.

We stopped at the Cafe twice while in Gramado, and sat outside. It's a perfect spot to enjoy the ambiance, as it's one street off of the main drag (which can be very busy). The cappuccino is excellent, and there are several "entradas" that are perfect for a mid afternoon snack.

This place is different from the beaten path of Gramado traditional gastronomy. The atmosphere, based on antiques and furniture from the family, the young owners have created a delicious atmosphere that is at the same time cozy and informal. The sandwiches, risotos and desserts, with different kinds of coffee and a good list of wines, makes of Josephina one of the only places in Gramado that will make you feel in NYC, London, Paris or Berlin. However, with the touch of friendship and sympathy that are proverbial in this beautiful town.

Good place for a snack or some tea, but avoid more elaborate dishes.
