Noodles have been soft boiled not really tasty ...After testing we would say - save... More

This place was recommended to us but we thought it tacky. It must be us because it's clearly popular. We felt we were being rushed but you might say service was efficient. We really hated the interior as it was so depressing and old fashioned. Our pasta was ok. The Arrabiatta tasted good but looked a funny colour. The special... More

Beautiful place for Italian food in the middle of Copacabana (half a block from the beach). The atmosphere of the place is cute, small but warm. Nicely decorated. The menu is quite extensive and they always have some recommendation from the chef. Very surprised because despite being crowded, they brought the food fairly quickly. The food is tasty and the...

Our tour guide recommended La Trattoria as a place that she personally loves -- as a local. We are staying down Avenida Atlantica at the JW Marriott, and it's a short walk (or Uber ride) away. We were amazed with how good the food was - I had a Lasagna Bolognese while my wife had the Bolognese sauce on spaghetti... More

Read a great review on TripAdvisor recommending this restaurant and went as a group of 10. They couldn't have been more accommodating and we quickly got a few tables put together. The food was as promised, delicious and hearty. I had the special Spaghetti with tomato and basil which, as a master stroke of culinary genius, the chef finished cooking... More

Typical italian cantine. It's an old and traditional restaurant, but the food is amazing. Prices are very fair as well. Great for a pasta meal!

This is a nice cheerful Italian restaurant right next door to the Windsor Excelsior hotel in Copacabana. Food is good average Italian food, service and waiting time were excellent and all at an average price. Highly recommended for all demographics, couples, families, big groups etc

This was recommended by our tour guide and a great recommendation it was. We arrived at 19:45 just before all the locals and that meant there was a great selection of tables available. We scored one in the centre of the restaurant and whilst Irene looked at the whole of the room, I managed to keep watching the passing parade... 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.
