I've been there for a lunch and I had the pay for weight service. The number of options is very small. Even though, the food quality wasn't great - the fish was badly cooked and the meat was like rubber. The staff is nice and the desserts were ok. However, it's extremely pricy for the food quality I've found. There... More

Came to this restaurant because of the good feedbacks it got. The environment is nice, and the service is good, yet the bill and especially the pizza were disappointing. 110 reais for two small size pizzas, and including service and live music, was way too much for the quality of the food. We ordered two 4 cheeses pizzas, which, in... More

This place will be for my special nights out while I am here for five months working in João Pessoa. The pepperoni pizza is very similar to my favorite New York pizza place's pizza, but my favorite New York pizza place is no where near as elegant as this upscale restaurant. It's a bit high priced for Northeast Brazil, but... More

Best italian restaurant in Joao Pessoa. Pizza is great and you can choose thin, medium or thick pizza bottom. Good italian buffet as well.

Small but very cozy restaurant. Service was quick and pizza was delicious. Prices are very ok! I would come back many times if I lived in the city

Probably the best Italian restaurant in Joao Pessoa outside of my kitchen. They tell me that all the pasta is made in their kitchen. Lunch offers a buffet, but I preferred the homemade spinach ravioli a la bolognese, which I really enjoyed. Unfortunately, they only serve pizzas for dinner, but I heard they are very good as well.

Best pasta I've ever had. Here in São Paulo, where I live, threre're lots of Italian reatsurants but none of them compares to Famiglia Muccini. The waiters are so kind. Went there 3 times in five days. Gorgeous fetuttini. On Sunday we met the owner, an Italian descendent lady. She was bringing food from the kitchen. On Sundays you can... More

This restaurant had been recommended to us a good place for a quick lunch. I thought the food was rather disappointing and not very hot. There are better options close by. If you like to eat with live music, there is a piano to accompany your digestion. The advantage it that there is a carpark at the back of the... More

It's a place where you can meet with friends, parents and others. The piano's sound is great and the place very cosy. Enjoy there! :)

I really enjoyed the place with its classic decoration and lovely live piano performance. They have a nice wine list and menu. The only thing is that the food, in spite of being really appealing, is not delicious. It's a little insipid. I'm sure they could work on that and they'd be perfect! ;)
