Rio is known for its restaurants that are open late for "snacks" as my locals call late night food! Eccellenza did not disappoint! The pizza was a very thin crust but not crispy. So eating with a fork and knife was OK!

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 excellent.
Good service, nice wine list and some good desserts but the pizza is what counts. Maybe a bit pricey but every so often just worth it.

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, live music (Wed only). Can't wait to return with family and friends.
