We had dinner at Anna's two weeks ago. Very good service and the food was delicious. I had the smoked salmon carpaccio and the salad with pears. Wonderful! It get really busy, so book a table and go early. Be aware CASH ONLY and they don't supply beer without alcohol which is a shame.

CASH ONLY !!!! and be aware of pricey "couvert" which you can send back and order other appetizers. Anna's couvert includes amazing bread, go for it and spend some reals on it. We dined there twice, everything was exceptional including the service :)

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!

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
