Best place we have eaten at in Rio. Pizza, fish and pasta were excellent. Desserts crime brûlée, gelato and tiramisu were outstanding. Urgugian sav blank was a good option. Relaxed, good venue. The staff were friendly and great to speak to. We went to luigi's on a recommendation and we lived it.

For some reason, there are places in Brazil that serves mediocre food but since it charges a lot for it, it becomes good... This is one of these places, I ordered a lamb's leg with polenta and gorgonzola. The polenta was tasteless, the gorgonzola OK but the star of the plate, the lamb, was horrible even though the sauce was... More

Luigi´s is a traditional restaurant in Rio de Janeiro, where excellent italian food is served by a warm and friendly staff. Salads, pasta and pizza have been keeping their fine quality for the latest 25 years... and I am happy enough for living in the neighbourhood. \o/

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
