We were in trouble on Christmas Eve, everything closed, and passed in front of Lo Stivale. With no reservation, the staff was so gentle, they found us a perfect table outside. Good food, great wine, great service. Recommend!

Been a fan coming here many times over the years and the Italian chef and his wife are very welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble for them to ensure your enjoyment. The ambiance is very romantic The food is some of the best we have tasted in the world which is saying something. well worth a visit.

Went to Lo Stivale with a friend. The waiters and chefs were very pleasant. Food and wine suggestions were spot on and they took time to answer all of our questions and help getting a taxi even though it was way past opening hours.

I was lucky to find this restaurant in Floripa. Paolo, the chef, comes from Bologna and makes a perfect Emily-Romagnia's food. Iwould have like to come and come again but I had to go on the trip... The spaghetti alla scoglie wrer the best I ever ate. The wine from Argentina was more than good and the team professional while... More

I spent a year living in Bologna and this is the best Italian food I've had outside Italy. The chef comes out to the tables to check on everything and everyone and takes a lot of pride in his work. You will be treated like family by the waiters and the staff (best service in All of Brazil!). I can't... More

I am so happy I stumbled across this gem of a local neighborhood restaurant. I chef/owner was so gracious and served up an amazing appetizer of langoustines and then a fantastic bowl of seafood tagliatelle with shrimp, clams, mussels, and grilled octopus. The service was great as well. If you have a chance to stop by for some dinner here,... More

Chef Paolo in person received us at the front door this Sunday for a pleasant lunch in family. Our choice was perfect! Pasta and sea food as Paolo recommend. He himself prepared the dishes. Reserve some space for desert... Delicious! At the end, a homemade limoncello (prepared by Paolo's wife) and an Italian espresso. No words to describe the feeling... More

paired with the excellent meats of Brazil - and the Chef speaks German. I can only recommend this restaurant. Everything is just perfect: The atmosphere, the friendly service who can explain everything, the beautifully set tables, the pretty garden and - of course - the food. Everything was great from appetizers, salads, over Gnocci, Steak and fish. Although not on... More
