Housed in the elegant confines of the enduringly glamorous Copacabana Palace hotel, this upscale Italian restaurant welcomes non-guests, as long as they are suitably-attired (absolutely no shorts and flip flops) and have an advance booking.
The quality of the food is as high as the price tag dictates, and the service is as impeccable as one would expect from a hotel favoured by Brazilian high society and visting celebrities. Begin your meal with a Champagne cocktail, and let the decadence begin.
