Brazilians just adore Italian food! Italian meals are popular and in high demand due to the large population of Italian descendants in the country. Many regions of southern Brazil speak only in Italian. Most of these Italians moved to Brazil in the 1800's and yet still maintain customs and culture from Italy even after all of these years! Sao Paulo has a large population of Italians in the Bexiga neighborhood, and in Southern Brazil there are huge populations in Caxias do Sul, Bento Goncalves, and Garibaldi areas. These areas usually have the very best Italian food, but competition has maintained the quality of food very high everywhere.
Restaurants in Brazil are generally setup to handle lunch time customers rather than the typical dinner time guests. This significantly changes how they serve dishes, and how they price their food. Many lunch time diners are looking for a very simple dining experience, with a nutritious and fairly quick meal. Hot buffets offer them this by having many hot dishes ready. Pricing is generally by weight or an all-you-can-eat model, many places have both options available.
Sandwiches are regarded as a snack and not a proper meal! Therefore restaurants normally serve up hot and nutritious dishes for lunch as opposed to the typical North American light style lunches.
Meals are usually served and consumed on premises, but many restaurants also offer take-out and food delivery services. Of course the restaurants vary widely in appearance and offerings, including a wide variety of foods.
For Brazilians it is very popular to return home during lunch to have their meal with their families. This isn’t always practical, especially in the larger metropolitan areas, so restaurants have seized up this opportunity and designed a business around catering to these individuals. In many of the considerably smaller cities it can be problematic to find a conventional sit down and order off the menu style business.
