“new for me but not for my friends”
Reviewed 14 September 2012 via mobile

we were a party of 4.my friends live the place as much as they do love wine.the wine list is huge,from everywhere and all range of prices.the service is kind&gentle and show no rush to force you to anything.we had hors d'oeuvres but of of the friends told me to stop(I was really hungry)otherwise I could not enjoy the food.the dishes are big.penne,risottos(the spinach and the quinoa ones)and a squid with spaghetti showed in the pictures were chosen.We couldn't manage to the desserts.As the restaurant is not so far from the domestic airport and there are many hotels around we could see many tables surrounded by luggages with 3/4 guys having business conversations.some romantic couples.no children around(a week day and late night)A nice place to have dinner with friends

“Good But Expensive”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

We went for lunch after just arriving in Rio from the US. The service was attentive and the place is attractive. The food is pretty good, but not great. We were both surprised by how expensive it was

“not for me”
Reviewed 11 October 2009

I walked in, looked around, and headed straight back out. If you are a tourist and going in alone, there's not really any bar to stand at or any scene happening, just a bunch of tables to sit at. Maybe I would like it better if I was there with someone else, but I was just not impressed by this place.

“A nice restaurant”
Reviewed 9 September 2009

This is a favorite with locals. More of a wine restaurant, the food is pretyy decent, if slightly overpriced. Great place for pasta and some Portuguese-inspired dishes. If you are in the neighborhood, you should give it a shot.
