Braz is the best place to go when looking for a good pizza: always fresh, with some great ideas in the menu. Although it isn't as elaborate as the new places in town it has all sorts of appealing options from the starters all the way through dessert. Service is attentive without being condescending. The waiters are knowledgeable about their... More

Pizzeria with customers of all ages and many celebrities, really deserves the favorable reviews it receives. Pizza extremely tasty, fun and noisy environment, as should be a piazzeria. A must point in Barra da Tijuca

Visited with a big group including an Italian who praised the pizza - rightly so. The building and restaurant are impressive and nice to be in - a big room with a high roof, maybe an old warehouse? Pizzas are proper pizzas with sourdough bases and an interesting range of toppings. Also recommended is Braz's signature pepperoni bread, layers of... More

This review is LONG overdue!! Bráz quickly became the "go to" during multiple business trips to Barra Da Tijuca in 2012-2013!! The pizzas range from very traditional to very unique but all are very good! The caipirinhas pack a punch...in a good way. As for the staff, I cannot say enough about how courteous, attentive and responsive they are. They... More

Very good place. No t.v. is a plus. Amazing pizza with really fresh ingredients! Italian wine specially made for the place! I Recommend the saussage skewers for starter.

Went for a quiet meal on a Tuesday night! The service was outstanding! One waiter could speak broken English, which was enough! Very traditional Italian restaurant, from the cheese, oil and coffee!

What a great place. The pizza is delicious; there's English menus, and the beers are cold I'd suggest getting a large pizza and sharing it

Very good pizza. Helpful and patient waiters - even if the language was a bit of a barrier. There's an English menu available, which definitely helps! I'll be back!

I go to Braz at least once a month. It is one of my favorite places in Barra da Tijuca. Beer(chopp) is perfect and usually very cold. The negative side is that Braz recently stopped to sell medium size pizza. Option is limitted to individual and big.

After visiting Rio De Janeiro twice and visiting this restaurant on both occasions, I have only high praise for Braz and will be visiting again when I stay. Both times I visited the waiters have gone out of their way to make me and my guests feel very comfortable. The waiters are attentive, humble and genuinely kind. For instance, I... More
