“Some of the best pizzas in Rio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

Unlike a lot of Brazilian pizzas these ones aren't covered with a lake of cheese!

“Charming place to eat pizza.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2011

Nice atmosphere, good service and excellent gourmet pizzas, with ingredients of high quality. Good wine menu and great entries as well. A bit pricey.

“Trendy place with excellent pizza.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2011

I went to Cappricciosa more than once and I must say everything is delicious! Try the Bruschetta Rossa, the Burrata with Foccacia and the best pizza is the Margherita Especial! For those who appreciate wine, the restaurant has an extensive wine list from Europe, South America and Australia.

“Good pizza, but note the tip below”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2010

Great pizza, highly recommended. Friendly service but as per the rest of Rio, English is a rarity making ordering a challenge especially if changes are required to the menu. Not sure how they will handle the Olympics and WC.

Luckily with a bit of Portuguese problem resolved.

Another tip for the gringos is order the family sized pizza. It's enough for 2. Greatly reduces the prices. Note the English menu does not list pizza prices not the fact that family size is available.
