After several days of white rice and black beans, my friend and I just wanted something a little different and easy, so we had dinner here (it was close to our hotel). The staff was reasonably friendly, efficient, they had english menus, and the food was quick and pretty good. Would recommend for an easy dinner of non-Brazilian food.

Visited by night in a group of three persons, we have asked pizza, it was good, 2 pizzas served three persons. We have looked the menu in deep, and the prices seemed correct. We have seen in the tables around, soup (capelletti in brodo) and pasta with meat, good portions and very nice presentation. We intend to return tonight.

Good thing: service, they even spoke english. Prices were reasonable by rio standards. Pasta dishes 30 - 40 R $. Lasagna lacked traditional itialian spices but unexpected from what we were used too. Overall average to good. Gnocci marsala was soft, which was unexpected. The sauce was like bland gravy which lacked flavor. It was like mashed potatoes with peas,... More

Close to our hotel & recommended by LP - what more could we want? Arriving fairly early in the evening - there were few guests - but it appeared that several groups of guests were expected. Visiting Rio some seven years ago - we had enjoyed more than once a very good Italian at the other end of the beach... More

I went to this restaurant on a recommendation by a couple I met staying in the same hotel as me. The service is outstanding here, was quickly attended to and the service of food was very fast. Absolutely loved the food, I had the Calabresa Ravioli which was amazing but my favourite part of the meal was dessert where I... More

I have been here several times while in Rio, and all I can say is it is a great place to eat. The portions are healthy sizes, so certainly go if you are hungry; if not just ask and you can take what you do not finish away with you. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and the place is... More

Great location, excellent food, good service. It is often full, which means it's good. Must try the bruschettas! Delicious! Big portions, but very enjoyable. Highly recommended if you're all meated-out by the wonderful Brazilian churrascarias.

We didn't book a table & waited less than 5 minutes for a table in this very popular Italian. No outside seating area. Menu in English with good choice, efficient service & good tasty food. Nice ambience in restaurant too.
