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

Some things can get worse. We could be talking about the city of Rio de Janeiro. Known worldwide, famous forits natural beauty and beaches. Terrible for its services, security, politicians. And it has got worse. Well, the same for this restaurant. Its menu is simple, but the taste of its industry made pasta and sauces is terrible. Not to mention... More

We were 3 people and we were all very disappointed!!! Service is terrible, they could not get the meat right and the pasta that came with it got cold by the time they brought the third dish, the salad had no dressing and the glasses they served the juices were dirty. When paying the bill we make a comment and... More

My husband and I were recently diners at Alessandro e Frederico. The atmosphere of eating outside and people watching is a definite highlight of the restaurant. We found the pizza to be ok- but certainly nothing special. The bruschetta sampler appetizer was the best of what we ordered. Perhaps the wait staff hasn't been properly educated on customer service? We... More

Horrible service! Avoid at all cost. Do not expect them to serve you the items you actually ordered. Unfriendly staff. Food below average.

During the last 3 years I have probably visited Alessandro e Frederico on more than 20 occasions and have unfailingly enjoyed their Cafe Bianco breakfast. However, something has gone very wrong here. Apart from quite a hike in prices, tthe genial service has descended into apathy, and I was there for the orange juice debacle mentioned in another review when... More
