We like this place a lot. Very reasonably priced food and friendly service. Thin crust pizza is great! Plenty of outdoor seating which is good if you go with a group and multiple dogs. Can tend to get cold at night time, so rug up.
When we need a quick bite and Sookie's with us - this is where we go. Good personal-sized pizzas. They also serve sandwiches, breakfast, and desserts. Wed night are fondue nights. There's always plenty of outdoor seating and the service is good. We love this place.
Easy on the wallet and fantastic pizza for the money. I've eaten here so much with my pooch. The peeps are mostly Brazilian and are really fantastic to get to know.
This is a nice little cafe with great food (I like pizza the best). There are a few tables outside to enjoy some food with your pup.
I cannot tell you how often I have eaten outdoors here with my dog. Whether your interested in a simple esspresso or an authentic italian small pizza, this place rocks.
Run by actual italians, it shows! The menu is not very large but it is excellent. If you like to watch football (soccer) this is the place to catch it.
This was my 2nd time eating here and the first with my dog. Food is decent but there was too much dressing on my salad. The Bruschetta was nice and garlicky. When I was here a number of years ago, the Caprese sandwich was very good.
The previous comment about lack of interest and dog love is something I noticed as well.
Just came here today for a dog friendly lunch meeting. The dog setup is good not great and here's why:
1 bone for the abundance of outdoor tables. 1 bone for table service. 1 bone for giving the usual "your dog is super cute talk" who can resist that. -1 for no water bowl and - 1 for no heaters and no cover should the weather turn nasty.
As for the food, scored a solid B.
Dog-friendliness: There are a number of outdoor tables, as well as somewhere to tie up your dog outside if you want to order inside for take-away. It would be a little cold to sit outside here at night if the weather's not right; no heaters and the outdoor space is not enclosed. Also, it is right next to the Embarcadaro so make sure your pup is "cafe ready" and can sit nicely while you eat. There's a park right across the street where many dog-owners take their dogs to play (off leash, but not fenced in).
Human-friendliness: The food is good. Fresh salads & sandwiches, thin crust pizzas, and they do have beer & wine as well. A good lunch spot. Italian-inspired.
