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. Also recently I have been to Rome and there is a restaurant on Via Margutta called Margutta and I ate there, I asked the waiter if they are related... More

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.

The parago alla neroni is excellent, superbly prepared baked fish with white wine, black olives, tomatos and fresh herbs.

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.

It used to be another friendly place in the neighborhood, with good food and wines, nothing amazing but very satisfying. The original owners decided to buy back the place and since then, the exact same dishes and wines had a 30% raise in their prices. I used to go almost every week and since then I returned only twice.It really... More

This is a small Italian restaurant in a pet of Ipanema that is improving rapidly. Due to its small capacity it is advisable to book in advance otherwise you may be disappointed. The service is classic Carioca, very attentive without too much fuss. No request is too difficult for the experienced staff. The food is good and I will verge... More
