Brazilian Food in Sarasota

I've heard of a restaurant here in sarasota called Rio Samba, or maybe just Samba. It doesn't show up in the phone directories though. Does anyone know where it is?

    I heard the same thing. I just moved to this area, so if you ever find out the same or where it is, please let me know. Thanks so much.

      If you are heading north on 41, go past clark (stickney point rd. / rt. 72) and they are on the left in a small plaza just before constituion blvd and just after DE SEARS plaza. The food is great and I eat there twice a week.

          Make sure to try the cod fish cakes ( BOLINHO DE BACALHAU) , PICANHA and farofa. Everything is great! I treat myself at least once a week. Resonable price, very welcoming and clean.
