Nice and fresh ingredients. And lots of Variety. Good pasta and the salad bar was very good. Highly recommended if... More

You have 2 options: buffet at a fixed price or normal order. I ordered a pasta with Alfredo sauce + fried polpetoni. Was not on my lucky day... taste was below average and I'm also a little bit sick of it. I have come several times before, but this one was the worst.

Great food, horrible services. Very good salad bar and pasta, with meat options, but waiters just don't care about guests.

To our surprise, this restaurant is located in an upscale mall. Normally, I prefer to dine in local establishments and not larger, chains. We had the buffet which included our (limited) personal choice of pizza. The buffet was excellent. The chef took great pride in dishing out the delicious food and answered our questions in English. The food and service... More

This is a good option for buffet style (all you can eat) lunch and dinner, inside Shopping Leblon. Buffet features a variety of salads and cold dishes and additionally, you can have pasta or pizza. Service is on the weak side, as after ordering and delivering drinks they no longer paid attention, which led me to go pay directly at... More
