In my opinion, simply the best restaurant in buzios. The food is amazing, they specialize in pasta. The decoration and location are lovely, very romantic place, perfect for dinner. The staff is very present and want to make sure you are enjoying every minute of the meal. To dine you have to make a reservation. It's worth the time and... More

I loved celebrating my wedding anniversary in this private and romantic restaurant. The owners are extremely nice and service is personalized. The food is delicious and the "Nhoque Presidente" is unique! This restaurant is not very suitable for kids. It is an expensive restaurant.

I have eaten here many times . I also ate at Ellos brothers restaurant before he sadly passed away . They are amazing people who travelled the world sampling cuisine and did something incredible at the time . Elo has carried on that tradition . They combine Brasilian techniques and ingredients like carne do sol as a stroganoff... I doubt... More

We booked at Farinatta off the back of TripAdvisor ratings and it didn't disappoint. Our hotel arranged a taxi for us and I'm glad we didn't try to find it ourselves, as it's tucked away in a residential neighbourhood, behind a wooden gate with no signs. It felt a bit like being invited into a secret supper club. The garden... More

We have been living in Búzios for three years and have never been to Farinatta before. Now we are more than sure that this was neither our first or last visit. The service was splendid from the second we arrived until we got back in to the taxi. Everything is made with so much love and great taste. The place... More

Just like an oasis, it worths the journey to find it. You won't find anything at this level in the region. It's not cheap, but for sure the best deal for a dinner in Buzios. Reservation is recommended during holidays season.

The restaurant is exclusive, only few tables spreaded inside the house of the owner. There is no signs on the gate, no menu and the owner seats at your table to explain what she prepared for the night (around 5 options). I had a marvelous fresh cod fish with sweet potato agnolloti as side dish. But all the exclusivity has... More

If you are looking for a remarkable dining experience do not miss Farinatta. Since the moment you arrive util your last bite, Alexandre, Elô and the entire staff will work to deliver the best gastronomic experience in Buzios. And yes, the "Gnocchi Presidente" is outrageous.

Experiencias sensoriais. Um novo conceito que marca a gastronomia. A reuniao de elementos que, juntos, tornam inesqueciveis os momentos da vida em torno da mesa. O ambiente, a recepcao e o bem estar proporcionado aos clientes se Completam com uma gastronomia extremamente elegante e harmonica. Segue a tradicao de do seu precursor que se originou em Brasilia, depois continuando em Buzios, quando o entao saudoso Chef, o Nelsinho do Quintal criou a proposta de atendimento exclusivo mediante reserva. Com seu falecimento precoce, Elo Ramos, sua irma que sempre o acompanhou, juntamente com Alexandre Ferreira, resolveram manter acesa essa tradicao de anos, e foram desafiados a criar o Farinatta, que reune a proposta bistro, loja de vinhos e galeria de artes. Elo Ramos assume o comando da cozinha, com a execucao dos pratos ja conhecidos elaborados por Nelsinho, e Complementa sua culinaria com as tradicionais massas frescas, com destaque para o carro-chefe, o delicioso nhoque da fortuna. Alexandre Ferreira, empreendedor por natureza, criou a galeria de Arte, fica responsavel pela selecao dos rotulos e pela estrategia do negocio. juntos, ensinam que o sucesso nao se encontra nos livros de receita, mas no amor e carinho que dedicam aos seus clientes de forma pessoalizada! Um brinde! Tim, tim!
