The Lapa location is known for having been shut down by PROCON (the Brasilian consumer protection agency) recently (January, 2013) due to a cockroach infestation, food past pull date, and waste food in its kitchen, and the manager was actually arrested. In Leblon, the Pizza Guanabara was closed by sanitary inspectors in October, 2010, after finding cockroaches in the kitchen... More

My wife and I ate here on a recommendation from a local friend that this was the best pizza in Rio and an old tradition. We were very disappointed with the quality of this pizza, thicker than most of the better gourmet pizzas available in Zona Sul, and with a thick layer of cheese. The toppings were not of particularly... More

Very popular local meeting place. The food, including the pizza, is good but not great and offers fair value. Where this place excels is in its atmosphere as a local meeting place, especially during evenings and weekend and holiday daytime. Dinner in the restaurant section offers standard fare at appropriate prices with solid professional service.

If you get there a little early after the bars close you miss the rush and can get a table with out a wait. Pizza is delicious at 4:30 am.!!

Good pizza in Rio.... we had three - cheese, pepperoni, and mushroom. The cheese pizza was admitedly the best. The mushrooms clearly came from a can. The bread rolls with cheese inside were every good - as was the service. Like every restaurant in Rio, it was pricey.

This is one of the best places for you to go after the Night Club. Here you're gonna find nice pizza slices to share with Friends or strangers. And if you didn't score at all, this is your last mile!

This is the place to have the last beer of the night, or to have a slice of pizza before going to sleep. Gets crowd after 4AM.

Do not go to Pizzaria Guanabara to enjoy gourmet food and nor the last recipe of the contemporary cuisine (you won´t find that there!), but to sit on the porch, eat a good pizza, drink lots of nice, good draft beer, see and be seen. Very well located in the heart of the charming Leblon.
