We came back to this restaurant as we had a good experience in the past, and again we were nicely surprised with the food. This time we opted for pasta and our group of six order three different dishes. We all ate more than we could ask for, as all dishes were wonderful.

And what a pleasure it proved to be! For started I had Bruschetta, never did I taste such freshly picked tomatoes with garlic, olive and... More

This past weekend my husband and I ordered the rodizio fundue. We received a plate of raw meat to cook at the table. When we were almost done we discovered a live maggot crawling on the meat. We notified the waiter. All he did was brought us a new plate of raw meat and barely said sorry. We did not... More

Dishes taste home-made, they are fairly priced, the ambiance is relaxed and casual, good place to bring the whole family. Once of my favorite dining spots in Penedo.

I've been in Aglio e Olio restaurant in January'15. After some doubts on which plate to choose we went through the waiter's suggestion, the Filé Escandinavo. Awesome choice, it is a tasteful filet mignon with garlic and mushrooms, with a creamy rice with garlic and parmesan and a tomato stuffed with cheese. All delicious for a reasonable price and serves... More

Really positive: there are some toys inside were my youngest entertained himself throughout dinner! Negatives: we arrived and ordered early, at around 6:30pm. Food did not arrive until 7:25pm. Kids were desperate already! Other than that, it's a lot of food, but not very elaborate or tasty, just a lot.

Stopped by on the way to Maringa on a Saturday Ordered the Lamb Picanha (Picanha de Carneiro). It comes with rice and mushrooms. Both the meat and the rice were well seasoned, tasty and cooked to perfection. Even though i ordered for 1 person (half portion) it would have been enough for two. Only one type of wine by the...

We stopped in early on a Saturday night and shared a Penne dish. Cost was about R60 for two. The penne was perfectly al dente and the tomato sauce was excellent. Could taste roasted garlic and anchovy paste in it. The dish was a bit salty as was the parmesan cheese served on the side. I wish Rio de Janeiro... More
