“Beautiful view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

The Cipriani is part of the Copacabana Palace hotel. We let the hotel and restaurant know that Debra was celebrating a birthday dinner.

The food, wine, and service was excellent! It met our high standards quite well. What was most memorable for me was the view of the pool from the restaurant. It was evening and the pool was lighted. No one was using the pool then. The ambiance was terrific.

I suggest you request a table by the pool to have an unobstructed view.

“Maybe I was High on Life!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

Ok. So had just arrived in rio and ready to leave the next day on a three week South American trio on a small 5-star ship. I hadn't eaten much for a month and list 10 pounds so that should be factored in. Romantic. Great service. Expensive? Hubby pays and he said yes it was. Lobster risotto to die for with lemony lemon stuff. Great wine. One of my memorable meals. Probably should not review restaurants after starving for a month however!

“Don't fall for the hype”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

We were told this is the best Italian restaurant in Rio by the hotel staff which is understandable they get paid to make the place sound amazing. In reality it is nothing special! I can make a better meal at home. The service was very slow, we ordered veal which was decent and an Italian soup. The soup was horrendous! It was a bowl of salty rice! For $18 usd.. I thought I ordered the best Italian soup in the city! The soup at brio/bravo chain is better! You should never be able to compare gourmet fine dining with a chain restaurant! I told the staff about it and they apologized and smiled. I thought they would take care of it but it was still on the bill. They could have taken it off completely or offered a bottle of champagne! Anyways, skip this place, go to Ipanema or even around the corner and you will find much tastier food.
