Yesterday Richard and I decided to go to DA BAMBRINI in Rio de Janeiro with some friends from the UK. The restaurant is very cute. The couvert is good, but no need to offer so much bread. My penne with tomato sauce was wonderful. Richard was very disappointed with his spaghetti with langostine. The langostines seemed to be thawed in... More

Living in Rio for the last ten years, I've been to Da Brambini a few times. It is an Italian traditional cuisine restaurant, located at Leme beach on the Atlântica Avenue (as a matter of fact, Leme is how the beach of Copacabana is known at its very beginning). One good thing about Da Brambini is that they keep the... More

I've eaten several times there. The food and the wine excellent. A bit more expensive than normal restaurants, but it is worth it.

The food is really Italian, but is just in the average. The bread is good, the couvert is rich and offers some typical and simple dishes such as dry tomatoes in oil, eggplants in oil and parm ham ( good quality). The pasta is properly cooked, but most of the receipts are somehow "old style", the mixed salad is fresh,... More

Small Italian restaurant with character, and good quality food, if a quite a bit more expensive than you would expect from something similar in the UK. But it is on Copacabana Beach ! We booked large table and staff coped well.

The "Da Brambini" promises a lot but delivers a little. Because it´s in a list of the expensive restaurants in Rio de Janero , with plates costing R$ 60,00, we do expect a lot better than a fast food service.

I just couldn't find the proper link to do this, so I am using the review as a way to comunicate with Tripadvisor. Sorry. The correct name of this restaurant is DA BAMBRINI. I did submit a review for "Da Brambini" a couple of hours ago, but only after doing it I found out TripAdvisor had also one "Da BambRini"... More

The location is beautiful. Right across the street in Copacabana beach, with a gorgeous view. A beautiful decor, too. The service is great. The cuisine, very "competent" - i.e. very good, but expect no great surprises. Well above average among Rio's restaurants. But not so special as to remain in your memory for years to come. And a little too... More

It´s a smal place.. Try The Risoto Da Bambrini (risotto in a pineapple). Avoid the "couvert" because it is too big and you will lose your appetite for the main course. I loved this place.
