There are some restaurants which need urgently some help to get out of the bottom. Via 44 is one of those. Everything we ordered was below average and the prices, quite the opposite, very high. You have lots of other better options for considerably less....More

Looking for a good italian food in Rio? This the place to go. Just a few tables but the food is just perfect. That's maybe the reason why the cariocas go there!

The worst restaurant we've been so far, the toilets are not clean and the smell that comes out of there you can feel it when you are eating. The food is terrible, they should be more careful with the quality rather than amount. The dishes...More

Small, just a few tables but the food has a very good price and it is one of the best in Rio, Try the frito misto and the "pastel de camarao" as an entry, Cold beer, little wine selection but a hit among locals

We tried this place because it looked like a traditional style Italian place from the outside and we just happened to be nearby. The food was woeful. The Balinhos entree we're still frozen in the centre and the pasta we had was awful. - all...More

Ipanema is considered Rio's crown jewel. It offers the
best view of the sunset from Arpoador and is
inspiration for the legendary song, “The Girl from
Ipanema.” Ipanema is an upscale area, home to many
high-end restaurants and luxury shops, many of which
can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
