Excellent pizza in a very nice environment. Although fully packed on Sundays, it is worthwhile a visit with a nice bottle o red wine.

The food is good, but overpriced. Restrooms have a serious accessibility issue. And the place can get noisy enough to give you a headache.

Visited this restaurant looking for some good pizza and was not disappointed. We chose this restaurant on zomato and weren't disappointed in the least. We had some wine, margerita pizza and penne in pesto sauce, all of which were delicious. Service was polite and fast, you cannot go wrong here.

Having been to Italy a few times, I can say that the pizza served here is identical. There seemed to be plenty of choices for toppings and alternatives for those who did not want pizza at all. The wine selection was adequate and service good. We really had no complaints at all. It was a very easy walk from our... More

Friendly service , local beer and local people make for a relaxed evening before seeking an ice cream from one of the nearby speciality shops. Children... More

Great place close to Copacabana for a pizza. They make everything in a supposedly "authentic" Italian style - and I will say that their vegetables are quite fresh and bring out good flavor. I wouldn't say its a particularly great value, but in an area choc-a-bloc with tourist traps, this place is solid.
