Every time I go back to Porto Alegre, I take my family there. The service is good, lots of salad options, pasta and of course meet (beef, chicken, pork). You must try the 'picanha alho e óleo', deliscious!

Very simple and genuine place serving good and cheap food. Loved the galeto (baby chicken), the pork ribs and the fried polenta. The pastas were pretty good. I did not have the salad as it did not look very fresh. Loved the atmosphere. Great lunch spot that tends to be very busy on weekends.

We enjoyed the hors d'oeuvres and the capaletti soup followed by the specialty of roasted chicken served with many types of pasta. Costillas were also brought along with excellent salads. It was a very enjoyable and affordable. We hope to return soon.

Primo Polastro became famous because a typical dish is served there.
