“Not good for solo diners”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

The pizza options were too large and too expensive for somebody dining alone. Service was good though.

“Just not that good for the price.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Sorry, went there with my partner for dinner a couple of nights ago, unfortunately we were really disappointed. The only thing they seemed to get right with the pizzas was the thin base, the toppings were basically 5cm thick with cheese, maybe this is how they do pizzas in Brazil but good pizzas I have tasted use cheese almost as a garnish only with a dash of olive oil, fresh tomato instead of paste for the base, keep it fresh and simple.

We did not order much food and drinks were minimal and when the bill came got a huge shock comparably for the same amount of food at the same kind of restaurant elsewhere in Rio this bill was expensive, we thought that maybe we had received another tables bill.

It was an expensive dinner for average pizzas. A bit puzzled why this place seems to be popular.

“Great pizzas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

I'm a pizza addict and good pizzas in Rio are hard to find. I prefer thin, simple, Italian style which is not how most Brazilians like their pizzas. Capricciosa does a reasonable attempt at an Italian pizza and their gourmet pizzas are pretty good with quality ingredients. But one pizza is usually good enough for two. Good location, friendly service and a wide selection of wines.

“Good Pizza, but not like the Italian one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

I'm Italian, and for me the pizza here is so expensive, I know that maybe the ingredients are imported and this justifies the price.
All in all still the best pizza I've eaten in Rio

“Best pizza & sangria in Rio!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

We found this restaurant just by coinncidence, while walking between the streets to find good food. We really liked their pizza and sangria. We went twice during our 1 week stay in Rio. They have stome oven which makes their pizza special. Service is also good. It is more a family type restaurant with kids around.
