Great Italian fixed price with excellent salad bar

This is a great restaurant in Leblon and offers a range of pastas and pizzas in addition to an excellent salad bar with cheese, breads, etc A little bit expensive but very good - especially for Vegetarians also

We go regularly to this restaurant and the food is good, the menu changes a little bit with certain frequency but most of the time is the same, regardless the quality of food and the service is good. Note that you have the option to take the buffet and also ask for a meat from the Menu for just few... More

I used to like Rascal. The quality and the variety of the buffet was always good. Not yesterday. Clearly the choice of what was on offer on the buffet was very limited: no beef tartare ,no vitello tonnato, no goat cheese (three of my favorite choices of the past) and most distressing you cannot order a pizza anymore as a...

The pizza was tasty, the service was friendly. The rest: awful. My grilled chicken breast which took 40 minutes to come, arrived cremated and inedible and it cost 66 reals (that is 30 USD!!). My friend had some buffet items: Codfish lasagna inedible, the codfish was unchewable and strawy. Poor to very average food, and costly. Not going there again,... More

This is our second time eating at Rascal Liblon, we went Saturday and you have to get a number and to wait ,but don’t wary about that because you will eat pizza served by them and you can get your drink from the bar (pizza not include in the bill). I suggest you try everything. Everything is good I just... More

Everything at this restaurant is great! I particularly love the pizza. I think that perhaps it is a little on the expensive side. But I pay for it any every time I'm in Rio. There are other Rascals in Rio, but I have a particular thing for the one in Leblon.

Sincerely, this restaurant just have a name and nice tables. You pay like 60 reais to access the buffet what is very regular and ordinary. Nothing really special. You will leave the restaurant thinking you could have done much more things with the money you've spent there. If you want a really really nice restaurant, not expensive and with a... More

Unless you are going to eat "a lot" Rascal turns out to be a little pricey for what if offers. The food is good, the selection excellent, but the buffet is a little too expensive. Pizzas however are very fairly priced as are the wines. They have a very good selection of wines and there is always an expert to... More
