If you like waiting and being mistreated, that's the place to go. Back in 1992 we went as a family to this restaurant to celebrate my sister's birthday. The memories were so great I thought I would gift my foreign husband the same experience. Reservations says no reservation required for the bar. Get to the bar and 45 minutes wait.... More

My wife and I celebrated our 5th marriage anniversary last Saturday and I took her out for a elegant dinner at Terraço Itália. This is also the place were her father proposed her mother 42 years ago so there was also a family emotional component involved. Everything went smoothly and she was very happy at the end.

Title says it all. The view is unique but the food is barely decent for a top restaurant price. I wouldnt call it a complete tourist trap, but its close to that...

To reserve a table for the weekend you have to book well in advance, I think we booked a couple of months before we went. (It might not be the same if you're just going to the bar.) We made our reservation for the earliest sitting in the evening and got the best seat in the restaurant, right in front... More

We sat at the bar. Even there is work as seated service and formal style only. The view is great, specially at night. Drink and appetizers ( no full menu at the bar) are quite expensive, good but nothing to write home about. In short, you will go for the view. That's it. Of note, they charge an entrance fee... More

Yep, that is it: great view, sit at the bar, pay entrance and have drinks but dinner was not good. My risotto was horrible, I had couple bites and had to stop before having a heart attack. It was ridiculous salty and uncooked. My fiance said his meat dish was "ok" nothing spectacular. Only will return if I have visitors... More

The main attraction of this restaurant is the magnificent 360 degrees view of Sao Paulo. The food is good, but not spectacular. The wines are fine, but the prices ridiculous. In the top floor (42nd) restaurant, a band was playing 60s and 70s music. Overall, our bill for 3 persons was nearly 900 reals. It is a very romantic place... More

We have been to tje restaurant three times. One for lunch and two for dinner. The service is very friendly, not snob at all which is quite important. The food: good ingredients, but poorly used ( compared to other really good italian restaurants). The view is awesone, the must of the place. The wines are way too expensive. If you've... More
