One of the best italian pizzas I've tasted ever. Using special ingredients they offer pizza italian style. The place is great, and waiters are friendly and know about their products.

We came here after recommendation from a friend, and it definitely lived up to expectation! The pizza is truly beautiful. There is an option where you can choose 3 of the pizzas and have it on 1 as a third each, that way can taste more flavours. The fresh fruit juice is very refreshing. Unfortunately, we didn't have space for... More

I had been several times to Braz in Sao Paulo and the one in Rio is just as good. Fresh and great quality ingredients make their pizza the best in Barra. Their bread is also famous and worth trying. Sunday night is very busy with a nice crowd.

Finally this restaurant that is original from Sao Paolo open on Rio. The pizza is good but far away from the original like in Italy. Is heavy, is not tin, but is good. The entrance is really good, need to try.

Well, while I'm not a pizza expert but I'd say this has got to be the best I've ever experienced. At this cavernous restaurant institution that seats 200 plus serving pretty much only pizza you'll find great service, tremendous family friendly atmosphere, knock your head off cocktails and good quality vino !! You have to book or be prepared to... More

Originally with great places in Sao Paulo, the Rio one(s) is keeping up the tradition. The staff is friendly, the food marvelous and visually attractive. Good wines, drinks, etc. I worked with a fair size UK television crew during the olympics. Tried to vary the places where we had dinner. Braz was the only place they made a point of... More

Great pizza menu. Fine choice of wines and bears. Nice family friendly setting. It has a nice vibe and a great place to dine and socialise. My current favourite restaurant in Rio. The waiting staff are very good and helpful and everything is reasonably priced. You wil not go far wrong with this choice.

What a spectacular experience!! Excellent service, wonderful friendly staff and DIVINE pizza!! As a vegetarian I usually have one boring option for pizza and I had so many options here! The tiramisu is also to die for! Best pizza I tried in Brazil and daresay I prefer it over the Italian pizza I had in Italy!

If you want to try real Italian taste this is the right address.. Wood oven pizza, typical italian style decoration, wide variety of pizzas and some others.. I am sure you will like it. The same problem everywhere in Rio you will never find any waitresses who speak English. You have to use your body language successfully.

I rode the bus from Botafogo subway station to Maria Angelica at Jardim Botanico at 11:00 PM after returning from an Olympic event. It takes 10 to 15 minutes to get there. We were lucky that there was no line at this time. Had the Caprese pizza and loved it. It is not the traditional Neapolitan pizza that I love,... More
