Amazing pizza!

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... read 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.

First meal in Sao Paulo and it was very good. The prices were a bit high, but there were a lot of options and the buffet was quite good.

I have been eating this buffet off and on for seven years. This restaurant has what I value most, healthy, fresh, excellent tasting food! I don't dine hear to eat a lot of meat, I come here for the delicious fire roasted bellpepers in olive oil &garlic and the seared ahi/salmon rolled in sesame seeds. Occasionally, at the pasta bar,...

When I stared living in São Paulo, it was one of my favourite places to dine. It offered good service, delicious food and casual ambiance. Over the years, the ambiance remained the same, but the food and the service have changed drastically. They started employing a rapid staff turnover, so instead of having the staff who even greeted me by... More

Had dinner one night after work with my peers. This was the end of a very long day, which actually started the day before flying down from Charlotte, NC (USA) to Sao Paulo (GRU airport). Customer and internal meetings right after I landed on the overnight flight. We went to Rascal's for an early (for my Brazilian peers) dinner, and... More

I love going there with my family, specially because kids at age of my son (3 years) don't pay. In this case the cost benefit is even better! But talking about the food, I have nothing to complain.. great variety, great quality and great execution! Better than a lot of meet houses in SP.

Right by Avenue Paulista. Very large dining area and the service is OK considering the volume. The Chaipirinha was obviously pre made mix and "OK" at best. The selection of dishes was outstanding. The quality was good to very good. Exceptional pasta bar fro Brazilian standards but do not expect what you are used to getting in Italy. Overpriced but... More

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.
