Decent pizza

Decent little place serving various pizzas, salads and sides. The pizza was fine, not great but certainly passable. I have no real complaints, just felt there are probably better options available.

Waited for 10 mins front of house then eventually when i got the attention of the manager i expressed how long i had been waiting as the queue behind me grew. She said "this is not the queue" so why do you have the menu here? Blank look...didn't care what so ever and wasnt going to wait any longer!

Good pizza, shame it took 40 minutes to arrive! Only 2 other tables being served in the restaurant. A little pricey however,, mainly due to its popularity. Pizza is very cheesy, crust is medium thickness. Not to everyone's taste.

The place was busy on a Sunday night but not sure why. It was expensive especially when compared to other, much better restaurants on Rua Dias Ferreira. The minestrone soup was good, the steak was not. That plus a coffee was R$162 in total! I should have stuck to pizza perhaps? Waiters were very helpful to a non-Portuguese speaker but... More

If you are used to proper pizza, don't go here. The pizza is greasy and just not worth the money. I had 2 slices and ended up throwing both away.

This used to be an institution where you'd congregate late at night, but food now is pretty average and the pizzas below average.

I've been to this pizzeria with weird menu that don't follow the traditional way of preparing most of the flavors, adding sausages, bacon and shrimp on, pretty much, all the flavors of pizza. Made me feel sick for 2 or 3 days and my girlfriend got a stomachache.

This is a well known place in Leblon. Well known for its location and for very late night service. However, heavy food, average pizzas, average service. Nothing special

The pizza there is not very good, but if you are "as drunk as a skunk" (Brazilian expression) and need a place to eat in the south zone of the city, Guanabara might be a lifesaver. Otherwise, choose somewhere else.

This posh area has some of the most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some places open all night). One of the best places to visit is the beach, located under the impressive “Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a pleasant place to relax and admire the local beauty.
