    Famiglia Fadanelli: Italy in Curitiba

    This is in the old district where Italian families settled here in the late 1800's, Santa Felicidade. The restaurant is family owned following the tradition for générations.

    it is a sumptuous place richly decorated and friendly service. We were a party of 12 there and all was perfect

    The outside architecture will delight you by the beauty of the façade – with exuberant architecture of bricks in sight-and the spacious free parking, supervised by attentive valet. In its interior, the canteen leads the client to a typical Italian scenery, with decorations that evoke a feeling of joy, warmth and celebration, characteristic of the Italian community.
    Cheeses and Salamis, of various types, harmonize with ribbons with the colors of the flag of Italy. Tables and chairs and close families and couples, in style.

    In addition, the cantina has a air-conditioned cellar, with more than 500 bottles of domestic and imported wines.

    The hours are for lunch from 12h to 15h30. Dinner is from 19h to 23h30. they are open from Tuesdays to saturdays for dinner and lunch on saturdays,Sundays, and holidays.

    Favorite Dish: Filetto Fadanelli (fadanelli beef cut)

    queijo gruyere e molho roti. Acompanha risoto
    piemontese. (tornedo of filet mignon cover with a gruyére cheese sauce and rosted herbs, serve with risotto rice)

    Restaurant Da Pracinha: Wonderful Buffet and Grill

    by jporta Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This place is just great. A family runs the restaurant and it is very popular with the locals who frequently eat lunch here. The service is buffet style which is very common in Southern Brazil. This is great because you pay for your food by the kelo. Tip: Do not load you plate full of heavy potatos because you will pay to eat something that is very cheap. Instead pick things that have value for their weight.

    Favorite Dish: Everything is good!

    Adega do Valentim: EAT BACALHAO - Portuguese Food

    by scarm Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Portuguese cuisine, left over from the colonical days is still present in Brazil. In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, one canfind Portuguese food in a number of traditional restuarants, such as this traditional Portuguese style restaurant in Botafogo. Adega do Valentim is well away from the tourist traffic, and it serves excellent traditional dishes, like bacalhão, in the Portuguese style.

    Adega means wine cellar, and this place has an excellent selection of Portuguese reds as well as imported ports to enjoy with your meal. The owner,Sr. Valentim Monteiro dos Santos is himself an immigrant from Portugal, and he runs a great casual and comfortable restaurant. This is a place for locals, and it is located in a safe area.

    Favorite Dish: Bacalhão is a staple for the Portuguese, but less so for the Brazilians. The Bacalhão (dried salted cod) casserole shown in the picture is considered a delicacy, and it does take considerable time to prepare. The cod must be soaked overnight, and then mixed with the potatoes and seasonings before it is baked. A bacalhão casserole like the one shown is always served proudly, with the waiter showing the patrons the beauty of the prepared dish before serving.

    The Portuguese desserts are also a treat, as they feature such delicacies as baba de moça and barriga de freira. (Look these up in the dictionary)

    Buzin Gastronomia: Buzios, RJ - Buzin Gastronomia

    by ant1606 Updated Aug 18, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not the cheapest eatery in town, but a relaxed, clean spot downtown Buzios with excellent and varied food to tempt your hunger and beyond. Well, most buffet places may prove the eyes to be larger than the stomach.
    Not all-you-can-eat style but pay-by-weight, which is not uncommon throughout Brazil.
    Especially for those who hesitate before a menu, sight ans smell always works great. Shouldn't the buffet be enough - and yes, it certainly is - there's also an attended grill section and even a sushi-bar where the chef wears a kimono.
    As a reference, I had quite a large plate and a beer for about 50 Reais. No room for dessert, although after the table was cleared a kind waiter came by to present a luxurious tray with no less than ten different mouth-watering suggestions. Wish I would have saved room for some!

    Comida a kilo.: Eat by the kilo.

    by cachaseiro Written Aug 9, 2010

    In Brazil you have many restaurants where you can pick your food from a big buffet and then weigh the food by the counter and then you pay according to the weight of your food.
    This can be very economical if you don´t like big portions and it´s also a very good choice for vegetarians in a country where meat dishes is what you normally get.
    The kilo restaurants tend to be medium priced and generally cater to the younger middle class brazilians but everyone is welcome there.

    Nice buffet.

    Street food.

    by cachaseiro Updated Nov 6, 2009

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You see lot´s of little food stalls in Brazil.
    They mostly serve very nice local food.
    I have eaten there hundreds of times and never had any stomach problems from that food.
    One of the reasons i think is that it´s freshly prepared right in front of you so it has not been sitting on some buffet for 2 hours before being consumed.
    I would certainly recommend eating food from street stall and by doing that you also support hard working people who normally don´t earn much.

    Fresh food on the street.
