It is not rare for people who fly frequently to Porto Alegre on business to schedule their trips to Tuesday, so they can dine at Usina de Massas - at Tuesdays, desserts are free.

Huge portions. Recommend order 2 people portions to share for 3. Good option for big groups as can order various types to try. Essentially pick the sauce and can change to any type of pasta. The best was the four cheeses sauce with long fusilli. The seafood linguine is also yummy

I go in this restaurant for years and all there is always delicious and tasty. The couvert, the pastas, the sauces and the divine desserts. The atmosphere is very nice. I recommend!

I was able to order a blend of pasta sauces to my personal taste and was surprised with the quality and excellent flavor that result from my request. It is more than worthwhile giving it a try. Well-located, excellent food and quite affordable. Don't miss it!

I used to went to this place almost every week. But a couple of months ago they removed some of the varieties from the menu (the spinach pasta) and reduce the size of portions, making it really small. A pitty.

Food is fantastic and you can try the pasta you want with the source you want. They are all very tasty. The environment is romantic and they have good wine for a good price.

We had dinner here one night, We had the risotto, which was absolutely amazing and the carbonara penne, followed by dessert which was also great. It was a little pricey, but the service and food were worth it.

Four of us ordered four different pasta dishes, and every one was superb. Clearly not just a tourist place, as it was busy with locals.Terrific service. Just two blocks from the Sheraton, on a pleasant street with other restaurants and bars.

Thank Deborah P
