One of the best cost-benefits for cozy Italian in the South Zone of Rio. Located in the charming Praça São Salvador. Simple but nice wine list and great starters. The gourmet wood-fired pizzas are phenomenal; their pasta is not.

Visiter this little Italian place again and again in august 2016 during the Olympics. Always a lot of people here which made a great atmosphere. The food is good and fairly priced. Good service

Despite the nice service, the food was mediocre and overpriced (given the quality of the products). I had a cannelloni and, just after that, I had stomachache for three days.

Best place we have eaten at in Rio. Pizza, fish and pasta were excellent. Desserts crime brûlée, gelato and tiramisu were outstanding. Urgugian sav blank was a good option. Relaxed, good venue. The staff were friendly and great to speak to. We went to luigi's on a recommendation and we lived it.

For some reason, there are places in Brazil that serves mediocre food but since it charges a lot for it, it becomes good... This is one of these places, I ordered a lamb's leg with polenta and gorgonzola. The polenta was tasteless, the gorgonzola OK but the star of the plate, the lamb, was horrible even though the sauce was... More

Luigi´s is a traditional restaurant in Rio de Janeiro, where excellent italian food is served by a warm and friendly staff. Salads, pasta and pizza have been keeping their fine quality for the latest 25 years... and I am happy enough for living in the neighbourhood. \o/

Brick oven pizza made with fresh sauce and mozzarella. Also recommend the bruschetta and the white appetizer pizza. Service is very good and attentive.

I ate there with my girlfriend for an special occasion and everything in the menu attracted me, the best pasta that I ever tried there saying it as a local and I got an creme brulè, made in front of me, among many others amazing desserts.

The restaurant is an old house on a small street, if you aren't looking for it will be hard to find. But, since you are sit, everything is just fine. The pasta is fair like I thought I'd never find out of São Paulo and they have the delicious NOI beer from Niterói. A place worth the visit.
