I found this one Eater 38 which is usually spot-on but I found it to be pretty average pizza. We got the mista (with pickles?) which was good, nice and crispy, but nothing to write home about. Try out tribas up the road. Cheaper and...More

We went there with our son, daughter and daughter's girlfriend. We waited a bit to get a table. It is a small place looking like a bar (Boteco) and not a Italian pizzeria. Pizza is thin, crispy and topped with very fine products offering wide...More

Pizzaria do Chico it's an excellent pizza place, one of the best in Rio. It's diversity and tasteful flavours and is pretty chill.

You couldn't tell by their looks that they make amazing pizza here - but they do. Chico's pizza is just there in terms of quality and taste with the best I've tried in New York and Buenos Aires, where Italian heritage is taken seriously. And...More

Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
former mansion turned museum which houses works by
prominent Brazilian modern artists.
