Got an invitation for lunch from a dear friend. Place selected, research at the site for in advance selections. Great, on my way. Time came for menu presentation and the lamb was there too, OK.

An old favourite of Italian food lovers is this low key restaurant in Ipanema, A visiting friend was in the mood for lobster and pasta, not an easy dish to find on short notice. However Osteria dell' Angelo obliged. Starting with perfect Negronis and capanato de melanzana we contined with lobsters and pasta. The lobsters were grilled to perfection with... More

Very disappointed! After reading such good reviews I was excited to go, however that is where it stops. Calamari was over cooked, and the penne with asparagus I ordered tasted like store bought sauce, and was not reduced long enough. It was more of a penne soup with mushy asaparagus. For two people without drinks it was $85 AUD. NOT... More

I very much loved the food at l'Osteria Dell'Angolo. The mozzarella tortelli in fresh tomato sauce were tasty and moreish. The Pinot Grigio by the glass was ok but a bit heavy - I've had lighter, fresher ones. The crowning glory of my meal was the tiramisu: served with an amazing dark chocolate sauce, it was a complete killer. Only... More

Was there for New Years Eve, the fish was supreme super FRESH, only comparable to catching it yourself and the pasta was extraordinary. Excellent service, waiter didn't laugh at my poor Portuguese, much appreciated. I was alone but a family could enjoy a very nice dinner and not break the bank. I plan to visit both Brazil and Osteria Dell'Angelo... More

I return to the Osteria dell'Angolo from time to time, because the food reminds me of home. It's well located, in the heart of Ipanema, the dishes are very traditional Italian, reasonably priced. Business lunch menu ("Menu Executivo) is great and only costs you the equivalent of $18 without drinks.

Extremely fine cuisine in a extremely fine place. Service is first class, discreet and efficient. Wine list to compete with best restaurants in Brazil If you like first quality Italian food don't leave Rio without a call at L'Osteria dell' Angolo.

We went for lunch, the restaurant is really cosy with a real Italian atmosphere. The pasta was perfectly au dente with a tasty sauce. The mozzarella from the caprese was very good.

This restaurant is really cozy but the food left me dissapointed. The entrée is delicious, I guess that made me expect a lot from the main dishes, but they had nothing special to make me come back (and are also pricey).

This traditional restaurant has famous customers like Chico Buarque. Recently they added an annex with pizza oven and a modern decor. They are famous for the antispasti counter, which selection changes on a daily basis. The food itself is correct but never gained my heart, neither did the pizzas...
