We went there by chance and we were pleasantly surprised. The Picanha beef was very good, the rice and beans were very tasty. The service was reasonably quick (we got there Friday around 6PM), and we did not wait long to order and get our food. We know Brazilian food (somos brasileiros) and the Picanha was as close as you... More

Simple, unpretentious Brazilian restaurant. The Picanha was amazing and portion huge. No complaints about the food whatsoever. My companions enjoyed their meal as well. The four stars are for the food. Not crazy about the service, a bit amateurish. We were promised one table inside, and then it was given to someone else. So we requested to sit outside, but... More

It's our 2nd time at this restaurant, the 1st one was 2 years ago. We searched for other Brazilian restaurants in Toronto, but it seem like tey all closed down; there's a reason why Rio 40 is still in business: their food is delicious, very tasty, good size portions, very extensive menu and price is very afordable.

Visited this restaurant for lunch on a beautiful sunny Sunday. Servers were so friendly and explained the menu very well. Our waitress recommended the picanha which was very tender and delicious, seems that it was probably their most popular dish as we noticed various people eating it. Served with the picanha was white rice with black beans and fries. It... More
