Classic Italian, Family Style

This is a classic Italian place, all of the dishes are meant for sharing (2-3 can share each one). The food is really good, nothing too fancy, but done well. The atmosphere is a bit loud and crowded (the tables are pushed very close together). Usually there is a group of musicians playing music... read more

Group of 7. We arrived before 8pm, got a table immediately with no reservation. soon after 8pm it gets really crowed. Big meals, everything that we ordered, wine and food was fantastic. we ordered 1 dish each it was way too much food but we didn't know, now we know.

I nice tradicional Tratoria in São Paulo. They do have superb services with transfers by requests to hotels nearby. We have been in this trattoria a few years a go and now, coming back, it was a major deception. In a party of seven we order three different pastas and they all taste the same. Seems like tho cooker was... More

Brazil is a fantastic country, but the food is not always that good. Its strange to find so many good restaurants in the Jardim quarter. For Italian food this is one of the best places i have been to in this area (not that I have been to more than 3 or 4), not only for the food but also... More

If you're visiting a Trattoria in São Paulo, there are some things that you should expect - red-green an white decoration, and noise are both almost certain. But in this restaurant, the noise was added by the live music, played to induce the customers to sing out loud... It is definitely not the place to go if you want to... More

That's one of the best Italian restaurants in São Paulo....If you like sea food and pasta ask for MACALU a set of 3/4 big raviolis stuffed with clams, shrimps and squids, all cutted in very small pieces and marinated with a secret ingredients that makes this dish one effective formula against suicide. Enjoy Lellis as much as you can!

A lively Italian restaurant in the jardin district. Good food, great service, nice wines and a great atmosphere. Open late, until midnight and people walking in at all hours. Second time there and will return!

Zellis Trattoria is a real gem in Sao Paulo, Brazil -- in the fashionable Jardins district. Family owned. When we entered we saw many large, well dressed families eating at 8 and 10-person tables. There were also 4-seat tables with couples and friends dining. The décor was warm and pleasant replicating the earthiness and hospitality of southern Italy. The portions... More

Do not miss the garlic bread - yummy! Dishes serve two adults and one kid easily. We ordered gnocchi with tomato sauce for my wife, my eldest... More

The entourage is quite over the top. The food was really bad; the garlic bread was not straight from the oven, but so hard I almost broke my teeth on it. The carpaccio suffered from an overdose of sour (lemon and capers), therefore the taste of the meat was completely overwhelmed, even though I could taste it was not tender.... More

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
Jardins
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.
