Do not order the Pizza Margherita since it does have the normal ingredients of a typical margherita pizza. They want to charge you extra for tomatoes, onions and basil which is part of a tradicional Margherita and then they tell you that you do not know what a Margherita!!! Avoid this restaurant unless you enjoy being overchargerd and and ripped... More

Good restaurant in relation to food quality, service and price. Only point refers to location. Iracema beach is not always a safe place walk. Taxi/uber are recomendes to reaça/leave the location specially late in the evening.

Very good food and a varied menu. I have been here over 20 times and never have considered the service as slow. It gets crowded on Saturday night, so come early then to avoid waits. The upstairs is a smoking area, which I avoid, but others may like.

Food was okay, the carpaccio was good but the service took forever. Come here if you have time to spare, they took one hour for an appetizer!! Ask for the bill early. But i noticed they had lots of takeaway, they should prioritize the customers in the restaurant

I was very surprised with this place. They make very good tomato sauce based dishes but disappointing seafood ones. The Matriciana sauce is really incredible! And you must try this Buffalo Mozarella, it is really great.

the food was fantastic and reminded me of real italian cooking in italy. i will come back here over and over again. the seafood was simply delicious and i cant wait to try more soon. I dont know why this place is not in the top 10 of best restaurants in Fortaleza it surely is my number 1 so far.

Thank Shamsulbaharin
