Quite nice place, good view of Valinhos, quite small and pleasant. Menu is pretty much about pasta, but it is good pasta. I had the beetroot nhoque and it was very nice. Also missed some non-gelato deserts.... The options were all quite heavy.... But Tiramissu was very tasty.

Although the decor and house leave much to be desired the cooking is marvelous and the maitre'd went out of his way to make our dinner perfect.

Excellent meals, good wines, wonderful service. I think it is the best for small groups or to couples, for an intimist conversation, or couples celebrations. It is not good for children and it has a terrible stair, so accessibility is not easy for elderness too.

I have been visiting this place with my family and this is an authentic Italian restaurant owned by Italians . They have very good food , the only problem is the accessibility as you have to climb the stairs (not so friendly stairs) to go to the main room .

It is good to live near this restaurant. The owners are excellent people (Francesco, the son and Laura, the Mom). Food is excellent. Menu is something special and for sure you will be able to find a special dish.

Driven by Laura and her son Francesco this restaurant can take you in a trip to Italy with the Italian traditional plates very well prepared. The ambient is very romantic with low light and a nice window view of the city roof of Valinhos with soft music that doesn't fight with the conversation. The wine list is not extensive but... More

This family run restaurant is a cozy culinary trip to Emilia Romagna. The ambiance, the menu, the wine list, everything makes you feel being in Italy, even the Brazilian sommelier speaking fluent Italian. At the kitchen the chef Laura and his son Francesco produces traditional recipes from the region. It´s not ease to find but it´s worth the trip.

They got in 2011 the Italian Ospitalità Award. Really the food is marvellous and Laura is the best Chef ever ! You can order "Rosette Alla Boscaiola"! The majority of the ingredients are imported from Italy. Laura and Francesco, congratulations for the Award, you really deserve it.
