I ate there with my girlfriend for an special occasion and everything in the menu attracted me, the best pasta that I ever tried there saying it as a local and I got an creme brulè, made in front of me, among many others amazing desserts.

The restaurant is an old house on a small street, if you aren't looking for it will be hard to find. But, since you are sit, everything is just fine. The pasta is fair like I thought I'd never find out of São Paulo and they have the delicious NOI beer from Niterói. A place worth the visit.

Actually, this restaurant has the looks of a real trattoria which time forgot. It urgently needs improvements. Chairs are horrible, no air, service is bad. Food, though, is average. And the pizzas are correct for Rio´s standarts. At least, the one and only Pinot Grigio they have is very good.

Luigi's is a colourful and comfortable venu placed in charming colonial house. Filled with paintings and photos of Venice, the decorstills feels Brazilian.The menu is filled with varied and interesting choices. There is a definite Venetian accent to the menu. The wine list is reasonable and varied. The duck and lamb were superbly cooked. The house made pastas are wonderful.... More

The Laranjeiras neighborhood is not part of Rio's touristic circuit (except as a way to the Corcovado), so few people remember that you can find good food there. Luigi's is a small italian restaurant with simple but delicious dishes. Located in a side street away from the traffic, most of the tables in a patio, the restaurant has a unique... More

Being a resident of the Laranjeiras district in Rio de Janeiro, this is my favorite restaurant in the zone. Luigi's menu is simple yet full of delicious surprises, the most remarkable being the featured recipes from the Veneto. I specially recommend the Spaghetti alla Serena (with shrimp and ginger) and the Filetto di Pargo in Cartoccio. The Risotto d'Anitra (duck... More

This a really good Italian restaurant in Rio: just testified by our international group of 6 - among them one Italian ;) We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, nice service, outdoor sitting, and foremost the excellent food. Especially the pizza from the wood oven is a highly recommended choice! Pizza and pasta dishes cost around BRL 40 each. Great value... More
