Trancoso is loaded with chic and fabulous restaurants to sample regional and international cuisine, but Maritaca is one of my favorites. A casual but elegant eatery located just off the quadrado, this place is somewhere to come with friends, grab a caipirinha and chill.

The atmosphere at Maritaca is chic, warm and lovely. You’ll often see the owners walking from table to table speaking to guests, while the chefs in the back are flinging pizza dough for some of the best pizza you’ve ever tasted.
