Capricosa has locations in Ipanema and Jardim Botanico, but it's the Ipanema location that is something special. Brazilian pizza is popular and special, different and much better that the pizza I have eaten in the US. Capricosa makes pizza the old fashion way, flying dough, fresh cheese and ingredients, cooked in a wood buring stove. The results create long lines after 9:00pm, and be on the lookout for futebol stars, novela stars, and just the Rio elite in general. I was their when the famous anchor for Globo News, Gloria walked in, and the paper said Ronaldo and his fiance were there late Sunday night. The service is wonderful, with a friendly attitude and sincere smile, you can ask for the menu in english. They mix a fine caparinia, as well as a have a wonderful wine list and cold drafts. And wow, is it kid friendly, the pizza chefs always go out of their way to put on a special show for my 7 year old, they even made him a pizza in the shape of an alligator! If in Rio, you should not miss dining at what is now rated as the top pizza restaurant in Rio!
Favorite Dish: Pizza Buzios - Fresh mozarela and tomato sauce, toped with fresh large shrimp and watercress. My wife orders the "Fungi" three different types of delicous mushrooms top her order.
