On Saturdays there is a special dish: trout.

Despite its Italian name, the Battagini Restaurant has attained widespread fame among its clients for serving a variety of excellent Brazilian dishes. From Monday to Friday, there is a special discount for University students. Come and visit us! Here is the right place for your daily meal. The price (meal only) is R$ 17,90 per kilo, which works out at about US$ 9.00 for a kilo of food. Drinks and desserts extra.

I was passing through Lorena and had the pleasure of getting to know the Battagini Restaurant. I definitely award top marks for the family that manages this restaurant, both for the excellent service and the wonderful food. And I am an expert in good food! I definitely recommend it!

Passei por Lorena e tive o prazer de conhecer o Battagini Restaurante, minha nota à família que administra é 10, tanto pelo ótimo atendimento, quanto à comida de excelente qualidade. E olha que eu entendo um bocado de comida boa!!! Eu recomendo!!!

Ana Claudia (University Student/Universitária, Guaratinguetá/SP)

The Battagini Restaurant has a wonderful buffet, and the food has that extra special touch. I really recommend this restaurant, both during the week and at weekends, and it’s an excellent place to take your boyfriend... and, to make things even easier, it is set in the very heart of Lorena.

O Battagini tem um Buffet maravilhoso, e a comida tem um tempero especial, recomendo esse restaurante, durante a semana e nos fins de semana tbm, é um ótimo lugar para ir com o namorado... e pra ajudar fica no centro de Lorena.

Simply spectacular!! We had lunch there on Sunday 23 April, with a couple of friends from Lorena, it was a sun-soaked afternoon which made our outing all the more pleasant. Impeccable service, a wonderful salad bar and a delicious caipirinha, not to even mention the scrumptious barbecue! If you haven’t been there yet, you should definitely pay this restaurant a visit. Really, really good!

Sensacional! Almoçamos lá domingo 23/04, com um casal de amigos de Lorena, à tarde estava ensolarado, o que tornou o programa ainda mais agradável. Atendimento perfeito, buffet de saladas espetacular e caipirinha deliciosa, além do churrasco. Quem não conhece, deveria conhecer. Muito Bom, mesmo!

Devido alla falta de interesse delle traduttori per il incontro nel Valle del Fiume Paraiba del Sur, ho deciso cambiare il locale di questo incontro alla cittá di San Paolo. Maggiori dettagli sul nuovo locale, nella settimana prossima.

New Location Change Jul 12, 2007

Just a short note to inform that as the Pompéia Grill is closed for repairs, I have moved the Powwow to the nearby Angélica Grill - this actually has more variety of meat, 25 varieties as compared to 17. Price a bit higher, though.
