I had dinner there last night, my first night in Rio. This place is near by hotel that was the high point. I had chicken caesar salad and the pasta bolognese. It was just ok, I have had better, much better in other international cities. My dining partner had oysters and steak, which was cut up with dense light colored... More

Casual eating opposite the beach. Thoroughly enjoyed the home-made pasta. Seemed popular with Brazilians and other nationalities

No decent Italian restaurant would ever serve pasta without bread and even less with old bread, which is what I got when I asked for it. The gnocchis with tomato sauce and basil is just awful, and the only thing that you'll find amusing in this place is the violin playing some Italian tunes to the tables that are willing... More

We are a late lunch of spaghetti alle vongole (me) and caprese (my wife) accompanied by generous glass of a good Chilean sauvignon. My spaghetti were as good as those in the best Italian seafood restaurants and my wife had no complaints about the caprese. Service was prompt and attentive. This was one of the nicest meals we ate in... More

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.
