We had a wonderful meal at Don Camillo! The food was great, and the service impeccable. Try the mushroom soup! We enjoyed our first dinner so much that we went back a second time

D. Camillo is that kind of place that you can go, without to be afraid. Is always a good ambience, good service, good food and good wine. The prices is what you pay for have a very good dinner, and you also have live italian music.

Good italian food and Nice atmosphere. Service inside the restaurant is better than outside. Located at Copocabana.

Great Italian food, wines, attentive service, and a live 3 piece band to make you feel like everything's alright. Fair prices for the quality. Dressy casual, white tablecloth, but not stuffy. BTW, their signage is difficult to read: "Don Camillo"

This is our favourite Italian in Copacabana. The food is authentic Italian, the service is just great and the manager Alberto welcomes everyone with a big smile. The restaurant is across the road from the Copacabana beach.

Our hotel recommended this place because it's close and perfect for a casual, low key relaxing dinner....we enjoyed it so much that we came back a second time! We enjoyed their pizza, pasta, calamari and salads but most of all, enjoyed "people watching" from the open air patio. The service was good, the wine list was quite reasonably priced. The... More

Tried this place as it had decent reviews and was quite close to our hotel. Located on the beach front of Copacobana this place certainly has room for improvement. The decor on the inside leaves a bit to be desired. The menu has plenty to offer from pizza to pasta to meat etc. The service was average, one waiter was... More

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Great Italian food, emphasis on "Italian". I came with a group of five friends and everyone ordered Italian dishes, except for me. I made the huge mistake of ordering the seafood salad. Mind you, my food was not bad. However, everyone else's meals were heavenly good. My husband ordered the black rice risotto and, I swear, it was the... More

Nice spot across the road from the beach. Good Italian food. Good service from pleasant waiters. Unassuming decor, very popular with locals.

Staying in Copacabana

Neighborhood Profile
Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs, chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and more live side-by-side. There are options for all price points and tastes. However, the most powerful draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
