“Very good for a fast pizza or delivery”
Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

The pizzas are very very good with mozzarella to spare. Just the way I like it! The calabresa was fantastic but frango com catupiry not so much. It's not cheap but the barzinho ambiance in Leblon is worth the extra. Definitely worth a try.

“Shameful service, pizza by the slice , not fresh !”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

Service so bad , I was compelled to complain, ordered 2 slices no, thank you's when money was taken, was given a receipt, without instruction on where to get pizza. When pizza was reAdy it wAs just dumped, on the counter without a word that it was ours & wasn' t even close to us. Typical Rio lack of service.I felt like a homeless person who was begging free food or something.Apart from that the pizza was tasty & would of been great if it had been served an hour before.
More people in Rio need to complain about this type embarrassing, none care'ish service.

“Very good pizza. Casual place and Reasonably priced.”
Reviewed June 9, 2011

The place is located on a corner in Leblon, the welthiest neighbourhood of Rio. However, that does not mean high prices. The restaurant is intended to be more kind of an eat-and-leave than a pizzeria. So, if you're in a hurry or just want to have nice pizza for a more than reasonable price (NYC standards), this is the place to go. The Frango com Catupiry is a must (chicken with a Brazilian cheese). Mozzarella and Vezpa (spicy) are also excellent!
