Me and my girlfriend went to get pizza from this restaurant last week as we had read São Paulo is very good for pizza due to the amount of Italian immigration over the years. I checked it out on trip advisor and read the most recent review entitled 'on the decline since 1959' or something like that. This is complete... More

Very disappointing. First of all for eighty reals a pizza (£20) you would expect something delicious, in addition to the high trip advisor and lonely planet ratings. Unfortunately the meal we received was contrary to this. Sloppy toppings that fall off your slice, bland tomato sauce and definitely not wild boar sausage. It seems the issue is that compared to...

I went to this restaurant as it was recommended I'm the Lonely Planet. The restaurant itself was simple Italian style, our waiter spoke good English and the menu was also in English. The sausage bread we got for entrée was delicious, worth a try, I ordered pizza and it was nice, hot and cheesy with a thin crust, my partner... More

This restaurant is very highly rated and is supposed to be the place to eat Italian in Sao Paulo but it was a little bit disappointing. The service is impeccable but the food is not that great. It's good food but it just isn't as great as you would expect for such a highly recommended place.

As an Italian ... I'd leave aside sterile discussions on what a "true" pizza should be like, or even which is the best local pizzeria. Here dough was thick, Neapolitan style - quite tasty and not heavy on the stomach. Toppings ... ok, american style, a bit over-abundant for my taste, I'd stick to the simpler combinations. As stated by... More

This pizzeria came highly recommended. Hence came for dinner. Salad was super fresh. Just too large. The pizza was just about a 7 on 10. Was not over the moon, as people said it was. Bhagwan

I wouldnt say it is the best as some people seem to think (I still prefere Braz), but it is quite good. The sausage bread with cheese is delicious (although the crust is a bit too thick). Pizza was good (best margherita ever is a bit too much) and so was the traditional ricotta pie. Location is convenient and service... More

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.
