Been here several times and always order their special bread before even looking at the menu, wonderful combination of pizza bread, ham, cheese served warm - delicious. Extensive menu of pastas but really only look at the pizzas, their dough and combination of ingredients is...More

Friendly, average, good for an informal meeting. Some good pizzas, but not above average. The service is abit awkward, though.

I enjoyed the Favorita pizza especially. It's one of the best pizzas I've ever tasted! Another highlight is the friendliness of the staff. If you want to go out for pizzas, you can't go wrong going to Eccelenza.

We came across this charming establishment when dining out with our Rio Meet up group. The vegetarian pizza was perfect - thin crusted and loaded with veggies; just the way we like it. The service was quick and pleasant, and the atmosphere, charming, with delightful,...More

Good food on our first night in Rio. Just getting to grips with the language. They were super helpful. Me and the other half enjoyed our food.

Second time I went there, and like the last one, it was a terrible experience. I would recommend to choose other pizzeria, as this one is expensive and customer service is not good at all.

We had a great time. The place is modern with nice decoration and the pizza is great. Many interesting toppings that we tried. Highly recommend.

I've been there for many times pizza's flavor is original and very tasty. Besides pizzas the entries are excellent. I recommend eggplant roasted in the wood oven.

Firstly the waiters were rude and abrupt. The pizzas are overpriced for what you are getting. There is much better out there. Don't waste time visiting

Dear, we have trained wait staff, somelier, selected products, special wines, craft beer, a renowned architect decorated environment, etc, I regret that the only thing you can watch is the price.

Tasty pizzas, with creative flavours. Nice ambiance. Friendly service. Small place (with some collective tables, if I am not mistaken). Customers seemed to be locals, for the most part. Prices are high (R$70-R$75 for a pizza serving two people at best; beer and wine quite...More

Atendendo ao pedido do restaurante sobre a minha avaliação. O local estava desorganizado, mesas muito próximas umas das outras, desalinhadas, a impressão que tive foi a que estava em uma lanchonete daquelas de muito fluxo... com mesas sujas de farelos e guardanapos sujos. O dia era de fluxo, cheguei realmente a ficar na espera, em pé na calçada, sem opção de lugar para sentar para esperar... e quando entramos, o local não estava organizado. Não tive boa impressão, infelizmente.
