ORLANDO, FL, USA, May 26, 2022 / — EDITOR’S NOTE. Photos of the May 25 soft opening are available here.

On May 28, Orlando will officially be home to Camelo Pizzaria’s first international dine-in restaurant. For over 65 years, Camelo has built its reputation on the quality of its cuisine and service at eight restaurants in Brazil. Now a renowned restaurant is coming to Florida with one clear goal: to offer a unique international pizza experience in Central Florida.

For four generations, the Nóbrega family has been bringing signature thin doughs, homemade sauces and a varied menu to Brazil. Now they plan to win over the American buyer. “Over the years, we have hosted many American tourists at our offices in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. We always knew it was only a matter of time to come to America, but it took a lot of planning to be able to deliver the same quality pizza overseas,” said Camelo owner and project leader Renan Nóbrega.

Renan made it his mission to bring his original chef, who has been with Camelo for over sixty years, to Orlando to ensure the original recipe is reproduced. He also added, “What makes this Orlando place unique is that we will also be adding a couple of new flavors to our traditional menu like Pepperoni and Meat Lovers. We guarantee that it will be a unique pizza.”

The unique recipe for homemade Camelo sauce and dough has been passed down from father to son for four generations and has remained unchanged since 1957. Many toppings have appeared on the menu since the opening of the first restaurant in São Paulo. Since then, Camelo has made room on the menu for new pizzas that include, for example, Burrata topping (burrata cheese, arugula, garlic pesto and grated parmesan).

Camelo Pizzaria is located at 5415 International Drive, in the heart of the Central Florida tourist area. Its restaurant and bar offer gourmet cuisine in a cozy setting. “We strive to provide a unique atmosphere and taste with carefully selected ingredients and a four-generation proven recipe, as well as first-class service, so that our customers can always come back,” concluded Renan.
