Excellent restaurant. Family-run; authentic Brazilian food. So many great selections. Fantastic fresh fare, especially known for collard green salad and kale salads. Also, wonderful soups, braised short-ribs and desserts to die for.

Love this place! Always receive great service, delicious food and super convenient location. Decor is simple, not fancy, but food makes up for ambience that might not be date night worthy. My daughter loves their bakery next door.

Bossa Nova used to be a bright spot in Hillcrest dining, but no more. The fish dish - mahi-mahi, shrimp and scallops in tomato sauce - could well have come from a soup can. The fish was overcooked, grey and tasteless. The grilled shrimp was...More
