This place was a recommendation (to my wife) by a flakey Carioca. We arrived early (2pm 😀) and the only customer in the restaurant was a regular centennial playing with his dentures ... my expectations started to bomb! Alas, a simple food menu plus equally simply 🍷 menu arrived ... I took the wheel (the missus was managing our grumpy... More

I was in Rio recently for New Year celebration and was looking for a restaurant one night to have dinner and remembered Margutta because I had been here many years before.

MarguttaRJ, Proprietário at Margutta, responded to this review

Hello Bob, Thanks for the compliments, we're glad to heard this. I think there is a mistake about association with Margutta on Rome. We're not associated with any Restaurant out o Brasil. Our name is related about "Via Margutta", and no more relations. rs But, you're welcome to come back always ! More

The food was good, but we ate at other restaurants which were much better or cheaper for the same quality. It might be a Brazilian thing to do; we were charged 37 $real for bread and dips we didn't ask for. Atmosphere could've been better, but the service was good.

We ate here for dinner and they were very pushy. They tried to up sell us on everything. They wanted us to get the dish with the souvenir plate. Portions are small. What was upsetting was the 20% service charge!

Last minute visit after late arrival in Rio. Amazing service and delicious food . Do not miss to order Scaloppini di Manso alla Mostarda Dijon as a main course but with a small portion of spaghetti. Real Italian corner.
