Home » Eating Out in Rio » Italian Cuisine
Italian food is always a favorite. The world would not be the same without pasta, pizza, the wines, desserts, expresso coffee, and other mouth-watering delights. A typical Italian meal would consist of at least 5 or 6 dishes. You don't have to go that far, but do not skip the appetizers. At the best Italian restaurants in Rio they consist of several small portions of everything from calamari rings to fried aubergine, dry tomatoes, jumbo olives, oysters, fresh bread... You may be tempted to ask for a second round, and forget to leave room for the entree.

Refined Italian restaurants ones feature a typical regional cuisine, a good wine list, and prices to match. You don't have to dress up, but if you go in your flip flops and beach trunks you will feel out of place. Do not hesitate to ask the maitre for assistance to choose the wine, and specials of the day. Be ready to rub shoulders with socialites, and VIP's at Gero, Satyricon, Quadrifoglio and La Florentina.

Cipriani is praised for its cuisine, and you will enjoy the glamorous ambience of the Copacabana Palace Hotel. The menu includes plenty of vegetarian options, and your view is to the celebrated pool. Quadrucci is a gourmet choice, with contemporary dishes and a cozy atmosphere. Associate it to a visit to the Botanical Gardens and the Lagoa Park, you will go back home with an unforgettable memory of Rio. Fratelli is a good alternative. Capricciosa, Piola and Fiametta are the right choice if you are looking for a gourmet pizza.

The more popular version of the Italian restaurant is perfect for a quick, unpretentious meal. Expect a lively atmosphere, hearty portions, reasonable prices, and very busy waiters. La Mole or Pronto, in Baixo Leblon, or Pastaciutta at Shopping da Gávea and La Trattoria in Copacabana offer an excellent choice of dishes. These restaurants also deliver, if you're not in the mood to go out.
