A little cozy bruschetta place in Leblon with amazing food and calm environment. Wines could be better chosen and meals could be cheaper. Nice place for a sunday noon meal

Ate here on our first night in Rio. Found it on a side street off the busier Avenida Ataulfo de Paiva. Small restaurant, but fit our group of 5 just fine. They specialize in many different types of bruschetta, but had plenty of other items including steak that was very good. They had a good selection of cocktails and beer.... More

This place is amazing. We stopped there for a drink and some bruschetta and ended up staying for 3.5hours eating and chatting to the amazing manager. Highly recommended this place to anyone looking for great food and service.

As soon as you walk into this restaurant you will notice that each ceiling light is covered by the bottom half of a bottom of wine, which makes the restaurant a little dark but perfectly cozy for a rainy date night. The food is delicious however be aware that when you order a bruschetta you are paying about 5-7USD for... More

Really lively place, with great atmosphere. The manager was really friendly and let us try his home made limoncello- which was great. The food was good and the wine very nice. The best Italian meal in Brazil we had.

If it's true that Leblon is by far the best area in town, it's also the most expensive. This place charges USD 5.00 for one single bruschetta. We were in two couples and one kid and we ordered a simple pasta plate with butter no sauce and we got in our bill pasta with shrimp and cost of R $49,00... More

Extremely expensive bruschetta place with rough customer service. Comfortless and noisy. Not recommended.

A small place but counting with many good options of bruschettas. The ingredients has a high quality and excellent taste. The price is high, but what isn't expensive in Leblon? Unfortunately if we want a nice food in Rio de Janeiro we have to pay an unfair price.

I went with friends to Prima Bruschetteria and found the environment quite lively and cozy. The bruschettas are wonderful, a bit on the pricey side, but all in all a good ask. I would definitely come back to try other flavours!
