Tucked away on an anonymous looking side street in São Paulo's Brooklin neighbourhood, Vicolo Nostro is an absolute delight. Warm, tasteful décor, efficient, friendly but unobtrusive service, unfussy but beautifully prepared food with all the favourites, including a melt-in-the-mouth ossobuco, and a sensational cellar. I can't recommend the place highly enough.

I want to Vicolo Nostro with a colleague and his family who live in Sao Paulo. This is their favorite Italian restaurant in the city, and I can see why. It's located on a small street, and when you enter the front door you feel you're in a garden in Tuscany. There are tables in this area as well as... More

Hidden in a alley (vicolo = alley) in the middle of the Brooklin neighbourhood the restaurant is located in an old bread factory and seems a reminiscent of an Italian villa. Great variety of italian food. All dishes were spectacular, with balanced flavour and very good aroma. Cozy atmosphere, very appropriate for dinners for two, family dinners or business lunches/dinners.

This place has a wonderful atmosphere with plants all around. The food could be better for the price. Meat portions are too small.

I came here on a Saturday night with my boyfriend. It is hard to find, but it is definitely worth the search. When you walk inside you feel like you are in a small Italian village, cobblestone streets and all. It is so cute and charming. We sat in the inside portion, but they also have tables in the "village"... More

The place, although a bit if work to find, it was worth it. Best directions would be to go through Santo Amaro Avenue. They have a daily special lunch and I am told Happy Hour and dinner are quite good. I had the fish with the aspargus mashed potatoes, that was quite tasty and light. The service in general was...

Vicolo Nostro is a very beautiful and nice restaurant, with very good Italian food. At its entrance, there is a lovely garden with a small fountain. You can choose to stay at the tables outside, in this nice garden, more informal, or at the beautiful dining rooms that are more formal. The food is very good, the wine list is... More

Vicolo Nostro is one of the best restaurants in Sao Paulo. And this is not easy, given the splendid choice of restaurants. Reaching the place is not simple for taxis without GPS. But the decor, the food and the drinks are always spectacular. Service is very courteous and the restaurant is spacious but keeps a cosy atmosphere.

Vicolo is a wonderful restaurant. A nice interior with cosy atmosphere and excellent food. Amazing to find such a nice restaurant in our neighbourhood after 1.5 years.
