Zucchini pizza is outstanding!

I have eaten here many times, the food is always great and so is the service! We ordered the zucchini pizza, which was really good! I think it might be the best one I have ever had. I definitely recommend this place, I would come here every week if it wasn't a little bit far!

We read São Paulo can compete with Naples when it comes to pizza. We thought we would test that claim and this restaurant was recommended. It certainly does a fantastic pizza. One of the best I have eaten. But that title still belongs to pizzeria in Naples. Definitely go for pizza here when your in São Paulo though. A large... More

This place was recommended to us by a local. I was really impressed with the quality of the food. One of the better pizzas I have had - fresh and very tasty. Some more assistance in English with the wine list and we would have spent far more time here on the night!

Oh man, I love this pizza. Highly recommend the margherita and the Catupiry cheese one, a Brazilian specialty that will cross your mind when you go back to that poor domino's or pizza hut style of pizza you got back home... This is the real deal, wonderful pizza.

Speranza is an old-established, family-style Italian eatery, locally called cantinas. Speranza has two locations, but we usually go to their older one, on Treze de Maio. Like most other cantinas in São Paulo, they are usually packed with large and loud families. If you are looking for a quiet romantic dinner, go elsewhere. They must have a dozen different dining...

The restaurant itself is not about chic or haute-cuisine. Large restaurant with 3 levels of sitting areas, simple ambience. But the food is the reason to come here. Here we tried absolutely one of the best Italian dishes we've ever had in our life. The restaurant apparently was founded back in 1950s and still keeps the traditions/recipes. They serve only...

The best margherita pizza I've ever had (though a bit out of my travel budget). The restaurant had a nice ambience - the waiters served each slice for me! Despite me not speaking much portuguese I was able to communicate well with the staff. It is a walkable distance from Brigadeiro metro station.

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighborhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighborhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
