Italian in Flamengo & Around

Catete's best restaurant is this understated Italian gem, with its aromas of herb-roasted vegetables wafting from the kitchen. The stars of the menu are the superb pastas and risottos (try the San Felice with flambéed shrimp, fresh mushrooms and summer squash), though there are also grilled meat and fish dishes, and decadent tiramisu for dessert.
