At the end of a tourist day in Rio, we asked our host for a local pizzeria. This one is three blocks back from the Sol at ipanema. On arrival it was absolutely packed out with young families, so a little noisy but bustling. By 9pm, the kids had gone but there was a queue outside. The pizza was absolutely... More

Went there for my wife's birthday for the second time that we been on Rio. The first time the service was very good, the second time the service was terrible. The pizza was good. If you want bad service just go to Capricciosa in Ipanema.

A little pricey for pizza but the pizza is good and the profiteroles are even better. Good service and comfortable atmosphere.

We had been a couple of times for dinner, risotto and pizza are good, service is good too. Although it is a bit expensive it is worth the money.

Went there twice during the World Cup and the unbelievable queues of locals explains the popularity of this place! Pizzas were fantastic!

Overpriced. About 40 USD per person for a less than average pizza. They claim DOC, but I highly doubt it given the quality of the ingredients and crust. A soggy, floppy piece of bread. I felt cheated. Not recommended.

When you stay more than one week in Rio, you need to find something alternative to the churrasco and the galetos. Sushi can be an option, but also the idea to eat a good pizza can become a viable option. Before going to Pizza Capricciosa, every time I tried to eat pizza or pasta in Rio I was always disappointed.... More

Ate dinner here on a SUN evening. 1 drink, 3 waters, 1 bruschetta bar selection. And a large pizza with prosciutto on it. Pizza was great - thin crust , brick oven baked. Hit the spot after a day of sightseeing. Cost for 3 was $R 121, or ~ $51.
