Time Out says

In 1950, an Italian countess became anaemic and asked the chef at her club to discreetly serve her raw meat. He created an exquisite dish with very fine slices of veal in mustard. The colours, reminiscent of a Vittore Carpaccio painting, were such a hit that other customers wanted to try it. La Contessa is a homage to this Italian countess and has served this speciality in all shapes and sizes since 2015. And don’t forget the tartars, ceviches and piadinas – the best has a roast beef filling. It’s best to book a table because the place is very small – except when the weather is good, when it expands into Rua Amarela.
