Concierge.com's insider take:
Evidence of Rio's general gastronomic upgrade can be found at the city's latest Italian favorite. Part of the Fasano empirewhich made a big mark in São Paulo with restaurants and a hotel before opening a hotel right here in Ipanemait brings its sister city's more sophisticated air (soft lighting, exposed brick, and wood floors) and serves traditional Italian dishes such as fresh pasta and seafood.
Open daily noon to 4:30 pm and 7 pm to 1:30 am.
