Actually, this restaurant has the looks of a real trattoria which time forgot. It urgently needs improvements. Chairs are horrible, no air, service is bad. Food, though, is average. And the pizzas are correct for Rio´s standarts. At least, the one and only Pinot Grigio they have is very good.

Luigi's is a small italian restaurant with simple but delicious dishes. Located in a side street away from the traffic, most of the tables in a patio, the restaurant has a unique... More

Being a resident of the Laranjeiras district in Rio de Janeiro, this is my favorite restaurant in the zone. Luigi's menu is simple yet full of delicious surprises, the most remarkable being the featured recipes from the Veneto. I specially recommend the Spaghetti alla Serena (with shrimp and ginger) and the Filetto di Pargo in Cartoccio. The Risotto d'Anitra (duck... More

This a really good Italian restaurant in Rio: just testified by our international group of 6 - among them one Italian ;) We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, nice service, outdoor sitting, and foremost the excellent food. Especially the pizza from the wood oven is a highly recommended choice! Pizza and pasta dishes cost around BRL 40 each. Great value... More

We often go there on weekends, it's a italian restaurant, so you find wonderful pastas, risottos, pizza. Each month they have specials. I like the wines, specially Prosecco in summer
