I visited here in mid November. The food, service and atmosphere were all average - not awful, not special. The staff didn't go out of their way to help and the food was well presented but not amazing. I wouldn't rush back.

They serve a good pizza (not a lot of variety). The best in my oppinion is the burrata for appetizer! A must

I had heard about the restaurant and how amazing it is. Maybe I was unlucky, but I was really disappointed. I asked for a calzone and a sangria. The calzone was cold and the sangria was ordinary. The service was ok. Too pretentious for what it is.

I was in Rio for 6 weeks and although I had some good food I wasn't overly impressed by most "highly recommended" places, whether it was local food or international I struggled to find somewhere that would encourage me to go back. I stopped in here on one of my last days and had one of the best pizzas I've... More

Simply the best pizza! You won't go wrong here. Definitely worth going and enjoying a meal there. We went twice during our trip to the Olympic Games. Both meals were excellent.

Great Italian pizza. Cool restaurant, cool location on the lake (lagoa). However, for you Americans, this is an Italian-style pizzeria, and the Brazilian-Italian tradition is only vegetables on your pizza. I ordered meat on my pizza and the old school chef came out looking for me, saying something in Brazilian Portuguese that sounded less than friendly. My Brazilian friends covered... More

I was recommended here by fellow Canadians. Nice place. Good food. Traditionally Italian. Pizza could have been cooked a little longer in the pizza oven. Good wine. Free wifi. Good customer service and menu

Staying in Copacabana

Neighbourhood Profile
Copacabana
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 draw in Copacabana is still the fantastic view of the coast and the incredible beaches.
