The food is very good and they have a nice variety of dishes and "menu of the day" options. The portions are well served. The cost is a bit high for the food, but average for that area. Also keep in mind that you are next to the beach and so you better get there early for lunch or you... More

Good wine, really good food. Had the gnocchi and pesto and both were homemade and delicious. Dessert was also very good. Prices were very reasonable. Recommend.

A lovely little Italian restaurant around the corner from the Copacabana royal palace. Nothing flash to look at but gives you the feel of the traditional Italian restaurants of old which chequered table cloths to match. The chef well you wish you could take him home. In fact I will probably go back again tonight. Just writing about it makes... More

Frankly nothing special to say, it's a casual Italian food, it did not leave me any memories, Idon't remember what I ate. The hotel gave us the name and address of this place.
