Fodor's Review

This award-strewn and beautifully appointed restaurant is frequently cited as the best Italian in Rio. Choose from among wonderful pastas and risottos, as well as excellent fish and meat dishes. Vegetarian options are plentiful, and the tiramisu is a perfect blend of creamy, espresso-laced mascarpone. Owned by the Italian Fasano chain, the high-ceilinged, wooden-floor building exhibits the clean, contemporary design that is the Fasano hallmark. A second Rio branch operates in Barra da Tijuca, but the Ipanema location is a better option for Zona Sul–based visitors.
