Stylish Italian / seafood restaurant in the Fasano hotel. Flavours were good and the service efficient. Very good restaurant, but (like the Fasano hotel itself) is perhaps not quite as good as it thinks it is.

I have only rated Fasano an average due to the cost/benefit (otherwise would be an excellent). This restaurant is beautiful, our food was excellent as was the service, however it is extremely expensive by any comparison (i.e AUD$40 for the simplest pasta dish on the menu, and up from there). If the weather is nice sit out in the courtyard.

What a wonderful experience! We planned a birthday dinner for my wife, and everything went according to the plan: no menu, everything pre-ordered, and from start to finish a wonderful experience. We didn't have to order or ask for absolutelly nothing - everything came as it was agreed. Food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. I recommend the crayfish with... More

It has a good food, but not outstanding. The place is charming, but doesn't meet the expectations created by the prices in the menu. It's a good restaurant, but you have options in that price range.

This is an excellent resturant and probably one of the best I've been to in Rio. The service is excellent, excellent by any standard not just in South America. Then there is the food - wow. I had probably the best seafood risotto I have every had outside of Italy - and my Italian colleague agreed! all the dishes our... More

You can never go wrong here. All-in-all, I had a truly lovely meal at Fasano. The food was great and the service was on point. The cocktails were good too. Very good dining experience.

Impressed with the food and services. The restaurant maitre is a perfect Italian maitre. She knows everything and offer the must exquisite detail of the food you are going to have. The chef has 3 stars Michelin. The desert (tiramisu) is one of the best I had. At the end of your food you got an spectacular uniq view of... More

Very good experience. When the weather is nice ask for a table at the little terrace which is a bit more intimate. The staff super professional and the food is really good, definitely one of the best restaurants in Rio! Only bad thing is that there was a group of men that got pretty drunk and loud, if it were...

Excellent and attentionate service, fresh seafood and pasta dishes, in a very elegant and pleasant atmosphere. Although it is quite pricey for Rio and Brasil, it is one of the best dining experiences I've had in Rio.
