Had read reviews that this was the best Italian restaurant in the Leme area so were looking forward to dinner. When we arrived, only three other tables were filled, so it wasn't busy and there were many waiters around. Yet, after waiting for quite some time, we had to ask for water and wine. Then, after waiting for a long... More

Our whole group had dinner at D'Amici. The lamb was absolutely superb. Must try for everyone. Of course, the pasta was very good too.

Italian at Leme. Great starters. Great staff. Good menue. Good wine. Already been there 3 times. All inside. Should close the strevet and make a real plaza.

I believe this is the best Italian restaurant in town. Go there for lunch to avoid the dinner crowds. My favorite dish is the grilled octopus in tomato sauce. A nice side dish is rice with broccoli. The restaurant is located one street behind the Copacabana beach front, where the FIFA Fan Fest is also located. In case you plan... More

Not cheapest, but probably worth it. Waiters were willing and smiling, food was very nice. Overally one of favourite options in Leme, when budget allows.

For years this is undoubtedly Rio most visited restaurant for business lunches. Over the years, I have had numerous business lunches here and have never understood the appeal. The dining area is as nondescript as it could possibly be. The tables are placed so close together that it precludes you from having a productive business conversation. I would say that... More

The owner, Mr. Antonio, is a master cook who created a unique way of mixing the Brazilian, the Italian and the French cuisine. Ask for the 5 pasta dish and then ask for a grilled Cherne with lemon risotto. Unforgetable! Outstanding collection of good wines, too.
