Very good restaurant! We had wild boar and duck! It was great! It is a bit hidden but I recommend! We found this place from reading a review on tripadvisor! So thumbs up for the reviewer!

We went with our Brasilian friend to this out of the way, pretty and authentic restaurant, which the taxi driver had difficulty finding, but was worth the trip. The couverts were the best we've ever tasted, big variety, large quantity, fresh, warm and cold and...More

My friend’s mother recommended her friend’s restaurant for a birthday celebration during a recent trip to Rio de Janeiro. I wasn’t sure what to think when it was described as an Italian restaurant, as Rio, like most cities, is cluttered with mediocre Italian restaurants. When...More
