Nice atmosphere inside this place, which reminds you of the "old times Rio". Pizza and appetizers are very good, with a fair price. People say this is the best pizza in town, and i have to agree with that.

Decent atmosphere but in my opinion not the best in Rio; I prefer the pizza from Caprichosa but this is a nice change from time to time.

One of the best italian pizzas I've tasted ever. Using special ingredients they offer pizza italian style. The place is great, and waiters are friendly and know about their products.

We came here after recommendation from a friend, and it definitely lived up to expectation! The pizza is truly beautiful. There is an option where you can choose 3 of the pizzas and have it on 1 as a third each, that way can taste more flavours. The fresh fruit juice is very refreshing. Unfortunately, we didn't have space for... More

I had been several times to Braz in Sao Paulo and the one in Rio is just as good. Fresh and great quality ingredients make their pizza the best in Barra. Their bread is also famous and worth trying. Sunday night is very busy with a nice crowd.

Finally this restaurant that is original from Sao Paolo open on Rio. The pizza is good but far away from the original like in Italy. Is heavy, is not tin, but is good. The entrance is really good, need to try.

Well, while I'm not a pizza expert but I'd say this has got to be the best I've ever experienced. At this cavernous restaurant institution that seats 200 plus serving pretty much only pizza you'll find great service, tremendous family friendly atmosphere, knock your head off cocktails and good quality vino !! You have to book or be prepared to... More

Originally with great places in Sao Paulo, the Rio one(s) is keeping up the tradition. The staff is friendly, the food marvelous and visually attractive. Good wines, drinks, etc. I worked with a fair size UK television crew during the olympics. Tried to vary the places where we had dinner. Braz was the only place they made a point of... More

Great pizza menu. Fine choice of wines and bears. Nice family friendly setting. It has a nice vibe and a great place to dine and socialise. My current favourite restaurant in Rio. The waiting staff are very good and helpful and everything is reasonably priced. You wil not go far wrong with this choice.

What a spectacular experience!! Excellent service, wonderful friendly staff and DIVINE pizza!! As a vegetarian I usually have one boring option for pizza and I had so many options here! The tiramisu is also to die for! Best pizza I tried in Brazil and daresay I prefer it over the Italian pizza I had in Italy!
