NileGuide Expert tip:
Come here earlier in the evening if you want to catch the view of the lagoon
One of the best restaurants in Florianópolis, Villa Mangionne is located in a lovely small house overlooking a garden by the lagoon; you literally dine in the owner's living room. The menu includes salads, pastas, steak, and risottos. Make sure you start with one of the salads; the Moroccan salad is a delicious heap of crunchy lettuce hearts topped with toasted almonds, orange slices, and an orange vinaigrette. For a main course, stick with pasta. All are made from scratch with the freshest ingredients. Our favorite is the ravioli de anatra, a freshly made ravioli stuffed with tender duck served in a duck broth seasoned with mushrooms and cream. Also good is the tonnarielli al filetto, pasta served with a generous portion of filet mignon strips flambéed in bourbon. Desserts are equally scrumptious and made in-house. We recommend the torta romeo ande giulietta, a guava compote twist on the traditional cheesecake.
