I have been there over and over again and the every time and I don´t regret it. They have a generous choice of pizze although their signature one is the one with the name of the restaurant. Service is basically efficient and the wine list is very good. The antipasti also deserve due attention. But be careful the place literally... More

Pizzeria should mean you know how to do a crunchy pizza, ours was nothing close. Lasagne was fine and the ravioli was also below the expected quality. In short go somewhere else if you can.

Bad pizzas and very very expensive (2 pizzas by delivery, R$193,00). We were expecting amazing pizzas for this price.

At the end of a tourist day in Rio, we asked our host for a local pizzeria. This one is three blocks back from the Sol at ipanema. On arrival it was absolutely packed out with young families, so a little noisy but bustling. By 9pm, the kids had gone but there was a queue outside. The pizza was absolutely... More

Went there for my wife's birthday for the second time that we been on Rio. The first time the service was very good, the second time the service was terrible. The pizza was good. If you want bad service just go to Capricciosa in Ipanema.

A little pricey for pizza but the pizza is good and the profiteroles are even better. Good service and comfortable atmosphere.

We had been a couple of times for dinner, risotto and pizza are good, service is good too. Although it is a bit expensive it is worth the money.

Went there twice during the World Cup and the unbelievable queues of locals explains the popularity of this place! Pizzas were fantastic!

Overpriced. About 40 USD per person for a less than average pizza. They claim DOC, but I highly doubt it given the quality of the ingredients and crust. A soggy, floppy piece of bread. I felt cheated. Not recommended.
