If you are looking for an evening of luxury, tradition and history of Italian cuisine in Brazil, the Fasano restaurant is the place for you. The Fasano family moved to Brazil in the early 1900s and immediately began to build its gastronomic empire made today of many restaurants located between São Paulo and Rio, as well as a number of splendid hotels. The cuisine at Fasano is classic, an Italian cookery that over time has obviously been adapted, and that today is under the command of talented chef Luca Gozzani. The dishes that deserve attention are the beef carpaccio with black olive pate, capers and pine nuts as well as 5 minutes boiled egg with raw shrimps, porcini mushrooms and parmesan fonduta. Excellent fresh stuffed pastas and risottos, in season do not miss the one with Alba white truffle. The meat entrees include Ossobuco with gremolata and Milanse-style veal chop in breadcrust, all performed with elegance and an eye to tradition. The stellar cellar is under the command of the best sommelier in the country: Manoel Beato.
