I've been a client of this restaurant for over a decade. Food and atmosphere have always been amazing, along with great wines and fair prices.

Nice place, with genuine Italian food. Try the lasagna. Prices are not cheap but this lasagna for example can serve 2 people.

Ate there a few times with my gf, had some chicken but we didn't like it. The pasta and it's sauce was really good! The shrimp was very good as well.

20 years of tradition in the City of Florianópolis, we serve Italian food with a Californian touch. Romantic setting for candlelight dinners and decorated with items from the Fontana and Nesello families immigrants from Italy who came to Brazil in the late eighteenth century. Well be waiting for your visit!
