There's two A&F restaurants in the same street. This, the pizzeria, is a bit further up from the beach. The first specialises more in pasta and meat/fish dishes. This is still my favourite pizza in Rio, but it does come at a price. However, the bases are excellent (especially the Napoli option), and unlike most Rio pizzas, it does not... More

The only question remaining, why charge people 13%? The service is exactly the same all over the city so why pretend they are doing something different?!

BLACK TRUFFLE PIZZA!!!!. The highlight of the dinner night and a must. On the expensive side of things but it is worth it if not for a special occasion. The service was fast and professional and the menu is of a high calibre and good food execution. But for me the best was the Black Truffle pizza. Yummy!

the food is correct but prices are not related to the quality of food. Dessert menui is ridiculous and service is much better inside than outside. There are two in the same street and the bar is lively but very crowded.

Alessandro e Frederico have several restaurants in Rio including two in Ipanema. Last time I visited, I had a couple of lovely meals at their Resturante E Cafe cross the street. This time we tried the Pizzaria as we were a large party with young children, too. Overall, service was good. We ate indoors due to the weather. We sampled... More

Its known as the bistrô, but the same name as the pizzaria (almost same street as well). Terrible dinner... The carpaccio wasn't nice, my fish was very thin, with a bad taste, the fillet of my husband was raw (it was supposed to be middle)... And the worst:the dessert (crepe with caramel....= completely cold). First and last time there!

I've walked in the restaurant in my second night in ipanema and I was shocked by the how fast I was welcomed to my table with a big smile and after taking my order I've got my food in just the right order and everything tastes soo good. Highly recommended

The executive lunches at Alessandro e Federico are well proportioned and good value for money. The choices they have for you are interesting and varies. For starters, you could choose between a salad or a bruschetta ( I went with the bruschetta). The bread was thick and well toasted and had plentiful tomatoes. Flavor was good and delightful. For main... More

I don't know why this restaurant does not have a higher rating. As someone who has traveled around Europe and lives in New York City, the food was superior and the service was excellent. I went with a group of eight. We ordered two appetizers, a pizza dish, filet mignon, a pasta dish, and a few desserts. We walked away... More
