Great choice for dinner!

Good prices, excellent food and quality. Close to most copacabana hotels. Waiters could be friendlier but they serve you well. Gnocchi is a must here.

Great local restaurant, well placed and reasonably priced. Good, efficient service and the food is delicious. I recommend the cannelloni and shrimps - outstandingly good. Didn't have wine, but the place certainly had a decent selection. Well worth it.

Very good bruschettas with garlic and tomatoes. Prices are standard Copacabana. I ordered a main and was allowed to change it after it's been served, as the quantity of cheese was too large (as it often is in Brazil). Gnocchi were fairly standard. My other half did not enjoy her ravioli, which were described as bland

Visited whilst on honeymoon, beautiful bruschetta starter and main meals. Pricing was excellent and would definitely recommend to anyone in the area.

We went here on the recommendation of our guide-twice! Great Italian food at reasonable prices. We highly recommend the salmon ravioli with passion fruit sauce. Unique and delicious! Other people in our party got pasta substitutions with no problem. This place has been around since 1976 and was established by a former USAID, Rio Special Services employee.. If you don't... More

We dropper in here just by chance - such a wonderful surprise. The food was excellent and the prices very good. I had a tasty grilled white fish with a meunier sauce - cooked just right and very well seasoned. My husband had the cannellonis which were good as well and the portion enormous. Very nice staff and good service.... 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!
