Neighborhood: Ipanema
Cuisine: Italian

With a vast veranda overlooking Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, Rio's city lake, Pomodorino is a sophisticated Italian restaurant whose dishes are every bit as delicious as the view. Inside, antique furnishings are dotted around the spacious dining room, and a relaxed but well-heeled crowd enjoy dishes typical of Italy s Emilia-Romagna region. The 'couvert' (entrée) of mixed breads is delicious, and a speciality of the house is 'bavettine', a type of very fine noodle, served with mixed seafood. The canneloni made with pumpkin-colored pasta and stuffed with shrimp and cheese sauce is  also lip-smackingly good. For dessert, the hot chocolate tart served with white chocolate ice cream is a firm favorite among regulars. Pair your meal with wine from their impressive wine cellar which boasts around 200 labels. Please bring cash as this eatery does not take credit cards.
