Quick and easy Italian meal

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... read more

My sister and I originally stopped here simply because it was right behind our hotel - we were not expecting some of the best bruschette ever! The food is very fresh, and great quality Italian. I would recommend to all. Affordable as well.

Had a great meal here...very cheap, fast, good quality food and a large menu to choose from. Their wine list is pretty good and quite cheap compared to other nearby restaurants. Good service, waiters speak good English, loved the meal!

Visited with a group of six people for dinner on a Tuesday evening and was pleasantly surprised to find the chef preparing the food near the middle of the restaurant. The food was well prepared and very tasty. The menu was quite broad and included a very good range of food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic. I had... More

We have been coming to Copacabana for many years, and we always enjoy several meals at La Trattoria. They offer an English menu AND the waitstaff is patient with my Portuguese.

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
