Service was very quick. We ordered drinks & garlic bread to start, which arrived almost immediately & 5 minutes later our food arrived. This made me feel skeptical, as I then knew the food had already been pre-cooked and wasn’t fresh. My partner & I...More

Very nice friendly family run restaurant close to the local hotels by Copacabana beach. We found a good selection of pasta, pizza, fish and meat dishes reasonably priced. Recommend a visit.

Lovely meal in a really homely restaurant. There's nothing pretentious about this restaurant, just very good Italian food. I've never seen pasta finished off by being put into a whole pomodoro cheese before, it's stirred around with some of the cheese shavings which gives it...More

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
