One of the most traditional italian restaurants in São Paulo

Very good pasta in São Paulo with great carte of wine and fromages from everywhere! Prepare to wait maybe one hour or more without reservation! And a little expensive.

I've been going to this restaurat for about 25 years. It keeps re-inventing itself and has a captivated public. It's great to see that it attracts lost of repeated customers as well as many tourists visiting Sao Paulo. I live in Sao Paulo and whenever we are in the mood for great food, we choose Mancini. Don't miss it!

Overpriced food, average service. Nothing special. Don't go there. You have to pay 16 reais per person just because they have live music. Poor appetizer menu. I think you can find better service and better Italian food in Sao Paulo for cheaper price.

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 you weight... 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.
