We had googled his restaurant as we fancied Italian and the food did not disappoint. However the meal was ruined at the end.

We had bread and oil put in front of us at the start of the meal, traditionally free. This was on the bill at the end as 30 reals. The waiter was shaking his head when we asked about it. I think this should be free especially when you spend over 100 reals on wine alone.

We then received our change which was 10% short. No service charge had been added and the waiter had decided to just give himself 10%. We asked for it back and got it. After that 5 waiters were staring at our table and shaking their heads. Considering we had spent so much, to then feel threatened is unacceptable.

On our way out the 3 waiters on the door did not say goodbye and muttered to themselves and pointed. Terrible attitude.

If you want a tip don't be rude to customers simple!

Avoid!

One of the best places to eat delicious Italian food. The excellent service and the view of the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon contribute to making your meal quite unforgettable. The fact that the restaurant doesn't accept payments through credit cards can be quite frustrating, especially for those who don't carry cash or cheques. Otherwise, everything in this restaurant is first-rate. Enthusiastically ecommended.

Number one: this restaurant, like others from the same owner, does not accept credit card.
Number two, the price is better than similar restaurants and the wine is more affordable.
The staff is very friendly. The restaurant looks like a tipical italian restaurant. Dont expectativa anything modern or avant garde. But the food... The food is excellent!

Well this Italian Restaurant serves great pastas and wines. The enviroment is chill , the music also. The location is also very good cause you have the Lagoa in front of the avenue so its easy to take a walk after dinner.

We ordered a variety of dishes and all reports were excellent - the food, service and ambiance. This is the preferred restaurant of our hosts and the best we visited during our stay in Rio.
