Amazing. You must go here if you love Italian food.

What a great place. My husband and I were only in Sao Paulo for one night but had been traveling in Brazil for 3 weeks thus far. This is the best meal we had. The street it self is romantic with adorable colored lights. The staff is amazing friendly. They have a massive salad and cheese bar where... read more

The three Famiglia Mancini restaurants in Avanhadava (Cantina, Walter Mancini & the main Famiglia Mancini) are really amazing! The food is excellent and the portions are generous, nice Italian wines, the Antepastos with a large variety of cheeses and many other delicacies to enjoy before main course. As main course I would recommend the leg mutton accompanied with a nice... More

Famiglia Mancini worst the visit because it is a tipical italian restaurant, with brazilian style of course. The street it is located is very nice. The food is not outstanding and the price is a little bit expensive, but the atmosphere, the service and the good choices in the menu compensate that.

It's a kind of different place, very cheerful, but I think it's not worth the price or the long lines. Food hasn't ever been exquisite for me there, many times it's come not hot enough. It's a good place but overrated.

Be prepared to eat a lot. As always, this italian restaurant is a real feast. Dishes on the menu are written down to serve 2 people, but probably works for 3 or 4. And the Avanhandava Street is a showpiece apart. Decorated with lights and a differentiated pavement, it feels like you're on a real italian plaza, in the heart... More

Traditional Italian restaurant, good food in a festive environment. It is considered a bohemian area where actors and artist used to go after their performance. Nowadays it is quite touristy, but still it is worth the visit. The street itself is interesting with other restaurants, all in a relaxed and lively atmosphere.

It combines good atmosphere, service and Italian food! The price could be more welcoming, but you should go when visiting São Paulo, mainly when you are with a group of people, since the plates are big!

I've visited this restaurant with a certain expectation. I had even read news about this famous spot in SP. The owner bought several restaurants in the same street and transformed the street through the installation of lights and other decorations resembling italian seventh century. The spot is impressive. Other than the above mentioned street decoration, when we get in the... More
