Terrible service...restaurant ripped me off! Stay away. Had a special on the board for 30 reis and these thieves charged 77. And the tiny pizza for this was only below average. Stay away during Olympics!!!

It's a gem in leblon! I love the pizza and the beer, draft beer, very cool and refreshing. When you sit and watch people, talk to the waiters, you will understand the vibe , the Carioca lifestyle. The waiters are very polite and can give you tips about rio , life end what else you need. It's a ,iced place... More

AVOID THIS PLACE! The pizza's are utterly disgusting, doesn't deserve to bare the name. Extremely mushy, utterly undercooked, floating in oil, overloaded with cheap cheese.

I keep going back to this pizzeria to have late slices and draft beer, despite authorities keeps crush down and closing it for supposedly hygienic issues in the kitchen. You can however bet is crowded most of the time, even actors and trendesetters are often seen on the premises.

This is definitely the worst pizza we had as I can remember. Cold, mushy, and taste like tooth paste. Great location in downtown Leblon but that's it.

Waited for 10 mins front of house then eventually when i got the attention of the manager i expressed how long i had been waiting as the queue behind me grew. She said "this is not the queue" so why do you have the menu here? Blank look...didn't care what so ever and wasnt going to wait any longer!

Decent little place serving various pizzas, salads and sides. The pizza was fine, not great but certainly passable. I have no real complaints, just felt there are probably better options available.

Good pizza, shame it took 40 minutes to arrive! Only 2 other tables being served in the restaurant. A little pricey however,, mainly due to its popularity. Pizza is very cheesy, crust is medium thickness. Not to everyone's taste.

The place was busy on a Sunday night but not sure why. It was expensive especially when compared to other, much better restaurants on Rua Dias Ferreira. The minestrone soup was good, the steak was not. That plus a coffee was R$162 in total! I should have stuck to pizza perhaps? Waiters were very helpful to a non-Portuguese speaker but... More

If you are used to proper pizza, don't go here. The pizza is greasy and just not worth the money. I had 2 slices and ended up throwing both away.
