Our guide recommended this place and it was excellent. Garlic bread was lovely and chef special - spaghetti al pomodoro, gran Padana and basil was absolutely delicious, wine and caramel pudding also top class. Highly recommended.

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful
