A fantastic place!

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... read more

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

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

After almost 30 years coming to this place, it is amazing how they can keep high quality. Service is very efficient and the food is delicious. Good pasta and sauces of your choise. 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

Had dinner Friday, May 16, 2014 - We arrived early by Brazilian times...about 7 pm. Service was excellent, atmosphere very open....could use some de-lighting...as it is quite bright. Again, service was the most prompt and professional as I have seen in years. Food was excellent, very swift delivery....Wine selection was outstanding....a real gem. If you arrive during busy time...don't complain....it... More
