We had a fantastic view of S.P. The service was attentive without hovering. The decor was a little dated, so is the menu. But, overall a lovely restaurant. I would enjoy returning.

Unfortunately I have to agree with some comments here, it is an AMAZING view (if you get there early and get a nice table) but that's it! Service, not the best. Food was ok, nothing bad to say but I was not amazed either. And when you pay £105per person (yes, that's british pounds!!!! ) I don't think I had... More

This used to be my favourite spot to take visitors, but last month I discovered that they now ask 30 reals per visitor to climb up and view the almost 360 degrees view of this concrete jungle, named São Paulo. A real bummer, if you take into consideration that average prices for museums, etc are around the 10-15 reals. I... More

I have been to Terraço Italia last year, to celebrate a birhday. The place is nice, the view is fantastic but the food was very disappointing. We order meat and pasta and both of them were tasteless. A pricey restaurant that I don´t recommend.

The restaurant is all about the view. The food and the service is sub-par given the reputation and the name the restaurant has. They prepare some modern Italian food mainly and they are okay at that. Go there with the mindset that you are going for the view and not for the food and you'll have a good time.

The restaurant is a little formal, the food is good, but the views win here. It may be expensive but you know that going in. Sit back, relax, enjoy your fiod and take in the panoramic view of Sao Paulo.

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.
