Guys, eating there reminded me of a wonderful experience we had in 2012 on the river bank of Tiber in Rome. I ordered something as simple as a Misto Frito which is asically fish and shelfish prepared in a deep fry - and it was really really good. Arranged with a safron rice and with an interesting bottle of Australian... More

Had a late dinner here during World Cup. Was very busy and had to make a reservation to get a table. Food was quite good without being outstanding. Very clean. Service was good, though communication was a bit of an issue as the waiter didn't speak,k any English. A little expensive, but to be expected right on Leme/Copacabana beach. Would... More

A friend of mine recommended "Da Brambini" as one of the best Italian restaurants at the copacabana beach, which made me curios as only 2 people were sitting inside as I arrived at the normal dinner time. After bread&butter, the non-English speaking staff gained our attention not only by delivering a salat we didn't order, but also by entertaining us... More

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.
