Everytime I have been there the food was fantastic and the service attentive. The lamb shank (Stinco) was melting in the mouth and delicious. The chocolate souffle a beauty. It is expensive, but worthwhile.More

Description
The first "Carioca" version of Gero opened in 2002 and follows in the successful footsteps of its sister restaurant in São Paulo. Awarded top prizes in the city's main culinary and news magazines, the menu is based on Italian recipes passed down through generations, such as baked lamb with potatoes and small artichokes and ravioli stuffed with veal and mushroom sauce. Designed by Aurelio Martinez Flores, Gero Rio brings the same minimalistic and laid-back ambience to Rio de Janeiro. In a few months, the restaurant became a staple in the city nightlife scene, a mecca for the town's many musicians, artists and personalities.
