The food was very tasty and service was great, if a bit formal. We said no to the optional couvert that looked a bit boring (bread and aubergine pate) and had starters instead- both octopus and smoked duck were delicious, as were the mains and desserts.

We all decided to have the pasta, it's homemade and really good. Perfect Italian Restaurant in Rio. This is a locals restaurant, and we were taken here by some locals. I love the decor, lots of wood and bricks. One warning, they do not take credit cards, bring cash!

excellent 'ambiente', fantastic seafood [try the cherne], good wine list, but you have to be aware that they do not accept credit card, only cash.

At the end of Ipanema (Rua Epitácio Pessoa, 214 - Tel. 2529-2142), facing the Gardens of Allah, you'll find Anna, a real jewel among Italian restaurants in Rio. The Aleixo Family runs, as far as I know, four restaurants in Rio: Fiorino, Artigiano, Pomodorino and, now, Anna, named after Anna Aleixo, the clan's matriarch. All of them, excellent. But Anna...

Second time in the restaurant with similar outcome. As you walk in the place expectations are high. Nice and quiet place with very appropriate decor. Breadat the table is excelent. Food itself is way below the expectations. It is not a good representation on how good italian food can be.

A most attractive restaurant that offers quite a selection of very tasty and well presented dishes. Although it looks like an expensive place, we found the prices to be very reasonable - possibly because the protions are not as huge as in most of the other Rio eateries. It was so good that we went back a second time and... More

The first time was enchanting, the second a letdown. To celebrate my wife's birthday, we went back to Anna, only to be disappointed by the experience. We both ordered robalo/snook that was good, but not ample. The mashed potatoes with bacalhau/cod pieces was a deception because the bits of it were imperceptible to our eyes and taste buds. Also, when... More

Everything about Anna's was first rate. We were greeted in a friendly and warm manner upon entering this wonderful restaurant. Our table awaited us in this quant, charming and elegant restaurant. The quality of the food we ate was the very finest. Dinner at Anna's was by far our most delicious meal in Rio during my one week stay when... More

Located in an attractive house in Ipanema with a beautiful cosy decor, this restaurant is nevertheless disappointing. The food is quite mediocre (although portions are generous). We went for an early dinner on a week night, there were only 3 parties of 2, yet service was slow. Surprisingly for a restaurant of this class, they only take cash or cheques,... More
