Rascal may not be big on ambiance, but they more than make up for it with the variety of food offerings. Buffet of ala carte doesn't matter. Everything is freshly prepared and and plentiful. The salad and pasta bars were impressive and the wood stove pizzas and flat breads outstanding.

Right in the downtown this place offers variety of cuisines with the option of Buffet and Ala carte. one can see the big Pizza owens right across the seating space. The service was good. The place is a bit pricey and worth a visit and one of the popular eating joints in sao paulo.

Two big stone ovens welcome you to Rascal. The smell of the baked pizza fills the air and you are in for a great treat:) The staff is very helpful, the pizza is divine (it is served to the table slice by slice to keep it hot:) and the atmosphere is lovely. Great place to celebrate an event and enjoy... More

Just off Paulista. Great Buffet Restaurant. Perfect for vegetarians and all other italianfoodlovers. A la carte as well, but you will be teased by the buffet.

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighborhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighborhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
