About the restaurant
Rio Brazil Steakhouse set on the outskirts of Richmond and Glen Allen.
A Brazilian steakhouse, commonly known as a "churrascaria," is a dining establishment that specializes in the traditional Brazilian barbecue style of cooking meat. These restaurants are renowned for their "rodízio" service, where a variety of skewered meats, such as beef, pork, lamb, and chicken, are slow-cooked over an open flame.
Our Customers experiences a continuous tableside service where servers, known as "gauchos," carve the meats directly onto the diners' plates. The rodízio style allows patrons to enjoy a wide selection of meats until they are satisfied, with the serving process continuing until they signal for it to stop.
In addition to the succulent meats, Brazilian steakhouses often offer an expansive salad bar with a variety of fresh vegetables, cheeses, and side dishes to complement the main courses offering a unique and popular dining experience.

About the restaurant
Family. Everything about our story comes back to that one word. Our story started in Carini, Italy and our individual journeys have brought us all here to Richmond, Virginia. The family is back together again, and is ready to share our passion for family and great food. From our Famiglia to yours...

We are proud to bring the flavors of Old (vecchio) and New (nuovo) Italy to the table. From classic dishes that the Genova family made on Sundays for family dinner to new and unique twists on Italian cuisine, every dish is made with love.

Named by Richmond Magazine as one of the best destinations for seafood and outdoor dining in the Richmond area, The Boathouse restaurant and event spaces wed impeccable waterfront views with authentic, locally-sourced cuisine. From the classically Southern shrimp and grits featuring sausage from Surry, VA to pizza made with authentic Italian recipes, the menu is distinctive and, most importantly, delicious.
