I know that once you read that I am recommending the biscuits you will think that the restaurant is lame, so let me start by saying that's not the case. This is a great place to have some home made authentic pasta while in Rio. Anna, it's wall neighbor Artiginano, Pomodorino and Turino are all great Italian restaurants by the... More

So we looked up Italian restaurants in Ipanema on Tripadvisor and found good reviews for Anna with zero terrible reviews. We went along last night and were first greeted with the news that they only accept cash. We though "how strange for such an upmarket restaurant". But we fancied pasta and we were hungry. We then spent the next 30... More

Delicious food and a great variety of wines. Staff is gentle, polite and helpful. Nice and cozy environment. Don't forget to bring enough money; they don't accept credit or debit cards!

There are no words to describe how much we loved our meal at Anna last night. It was relatively quiet (a Monday) but not awkwardly so. 2 adults and a child, between us we devoured the bread the waiter brought to the table (light, crisp, well flavoured), followed by lamb ravioli for the child (spinach pasta, with well seasoned lamb...

Ever the best food - fish, meat and pastas, drinks - wine list is varied, and desserts is a dream. To finish, an expresso coffe or a capim limão tea. Marcus

Place to go with money (or checkbook) in the pocket and time to spend. Fantastic breads to start. Then a three course meal as a must, or you will leave the place looking for a fast food to satisfy yourself. Time to have plates on table after ordering is much larger than the required to eat them.

We had dinner at Anna's two weeks ago. Very good service and the food was delicious. I had the smoked salmon carpaccio and the salad with pears. Wonderful! It get really busy, so book a table and go early. Be aware CASH ONLY and they don't supply beer without alcohol which is a shame.

CASH ONLY !!!! and be aware of pricey "couvert" which you can send back and order other appetizers. Anna's couvert includes amazing bread, go for it and spend some reals on it. We dined there twice, everything was exceptional including the service :)

The food was very tasty and service was great, if a bit formal. We said no to the optional couvert that looked a bit boring (bread and aubergine pate) and had starters instead- both octopus and smoked duck were delicious, as were the mains and desserts.
