Good Italian restaurant in Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro. The pizzas and the pasta are quiet good. Worth to visit if you are in town.

AF looks nice and is in a good street. The food was pretty ordinary, the White wine was warm and not great. It's an expensive area but considering the cost, the food, service and drinks were not good.

I don't know why I insist in returning to this place ... maybe a lack of options. The half decent pizza is R$65!!! Service is horrid, even when the restaurant is empty. They charge 12%, when the norm is 10% for service. They even charge for the doggy bag packaging, just absurd. Shame on the owners, and shame on me... More

On the same street, meters apart, there are two restaurants from this chain. This one looks more imposing but is specialized in pizzas, sandwiches, bread, anything that can go into their wood stove. They do have some main dishes on the menu, pasta, some fish and beef dishes, but I do believe that those options are better made on the... More

Visited here on a Sunday evening. Unfortunately they did not have a menu in English, which is fine as we are not in an English speaking country but the waitress continued to speak fluently in Portuguese even though she clearly knew we didn't understand her. The service she provided was very poor, we had to ask to order drinks, ask... More

My experience at this restaurant was awful! From the minute we walked in the service was begrudging. The waitress appeared put out to have customers. No English menus, which is fair enough but once the staff knew we didn't speak Portuguese but for a few key phrases they seemed to go out of their way to speak in quickly spoken... More

pastas dishes are too expensive for the quality. The service is good. The salads and sandwiches are nice but also too expensive.

We stopped for breakfast. Service was not the greatest even though we were one of two groups in there. The menu for lunch and dinner looks good and the quality of the food we had was fine. The breakfast options are very bready or very big (including pastry, bread, coffee, granola, tapioca pancake and omelette). Ok value for money. Easily... More

One of the first pizza places to use the DOC (certified origin) term, Alessandro & Frederico Pizzaria seduces because of the huge amonth of ingredients and care on the way they bake the pizza. Gennaro Cannone is the pizza man in charge of the recepies, and uses real ingredients from Italy to make their wood stove pizzas.
