Good Italian meal but pricey

I went there today with 3 friends. My scaloppine al limone with polenta were delicious. One of my friends had spaghetti aglio e olio cooked to perfection, the other Rognoncini and roast potatoes which he very much liked. We gave the mixed antipasti a miss, which was a shame, as they looked very... read more

Excellent service, food and wine. Beautiful and classic restaurant. The food was very very good. Nothing negative about the whole evening. London prices.

Very disappointed with this restaurant recommended to us by the concierge at your hotel - paying close to the equivalent of 70 pounds for a below average Italian meal, small portions , lack of taste, presentation. If you're looking for an authentic Italin with good food and good prices in Rio then give this place a miss.

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
