A 21 Century Italian would not recognize this as Italian cuisine. It is more akin to NY LIttle Italy's restaurant, a region that real Italians loathe and stay away from. In SP there are several cantinas that offer this kind of food which Paulistas go very fond of. It is the poor immigrant food of times that would have been... More

This restaurant sits on a street that looks more like a small village. The restaurant is cozy and the dishes are delicious and the price is reasonable, could be better, however the quality of service and food justify it. I'll go whenever I can.

You will be paying for the ambiance mainly, but some of the dishes are truly delicious, such as their bracciola. Long wine list pleases most. There is live music, just not sure if every night. It is a good taste of the traditional Italian neighborhood of Bexiga. A bit costly. Forks up!

Familia Mancini is one of the typical Italian trattorias, they are the owners of three restaurants in the same street so if the eating line to enter familia its to long you can cross the street to Miguel Mancini. The food it's grate in the three restaurants, change only the plates.

Staying in Consolacao

Neighborhood Profile
Consolação lies between the old historical center of the city and busy Paulista Avenue. It’s surrounded by the fancy Higienópolis neighborhood, which makes it a very diverse place. The nightlife along Augusta Street offers visitors a variety of options to dine, dance and be entertained. Roosevelt Square, Consolação's main meeting point, is surrounded by fringe theaters and has become a popular skateboarding area. Right across the street from the square is the elevated highway known as “Minhocão.” Though it is busy with car traffic all week, it shuts down every weekend and becomes a leisure spot right in the middle of the city.
