I ordered a spaghetti carbonara without looking at the menu. When my order arrived, I noticed the pasta was covered in sauce. This "traditional" Italian restaurant utilizes CREAM in their carbonara, a travesty to the classic recipe. Disappointing.

We stumbled upon Ettore by accident, but we were so glad that we did. The service was great even with the language barrier, and the food was amazing. It you find yourself in the area I highly recommend stopping in.

Ettore has been here for at more than 30 years, and for a restaurant in Brazil this is a lot. Reasons why: charming place/decor, delicious food, careful service, reasonable prices. Sure bet for excellent Italian food.
