“People Confuse This With The Samba Place Next Door”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

The Santo Scenarium is a restaurant. You are close enough to the Samba place with nearly the same name, but this is a restaurant. They do have live music, but we were too early for it. The food is good and service is good. The place is decorated to the hilt with religious artifacts - you might feel you were in a very old church.

“Confused”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

Most of these reviews seem to be of the large samba club Rio Scenarium. SANTO Scenarium is the small jazz-orientated restaurant a couple of doors down.
