When we arrived we had to wait outside and ordered a few drinks and a starter. Soon after, we had a table available inside. The caipirinha I ordered was really good -- made with great cachaça and not a lot of sugar! I did not ordered a pasta as my friends did. I have to say the tunna with rocket... More

Great restaurant in Sao Paulo I highly recommend it. They have the best risottos I've ever had in the city and the meat is always cooked right.

Meal - cheesy pizza as first course: too much cheese, not enough of anything else (maybe add black olive or tomato?or both??); main, pasta bolognese was dull, beef too dry, too little tomato, and tasting neither like fresh nor like puree; little to tempt you for dessert - had a Cosmopolitan instead - though pineapple was pleasantly sweet; wine list...

We had antipasti, salad and pizza in this restaurant and both salad and pizza rather weak and completely flavorless. The salad was advertised "with Parmesan" but there was nothing more than a single tasteless slice of paper-like cheese on top of it. The pizza was the worst we had in a long time: Tasteless tomato sugo, no salt and pepper,... More

Great carpaccio, bruschetta, crostini to start! But don't eat too much starters/antipasto, 'cause you gotta leave room for the best one: Spaguetti carbonara with Prosciutto... This is all you need to be completely HAPPY! Enjoy and delight yourself!

The Serafina Bar e Restaurante offers a selection of italian dishes from antipasta, pizza, pasta and more. Friendly atmosphere with attentive staff that have good knowledge of the menu and the options. I will return here on future visits to Sao Paolo

Serafina it's a good place for those who are looking for Italian food. Love the pizza, pasta and burreta... They also have some healthy options. They offer some protein dishes served with salad/veggies (like the seared tuna with arugula salad or the grilled salmon with steamed spinach), or you can ask for the "fit menu" to have more options.

Folks, do yourselves a favor and please don't go to the Serafina Itaim. The food used to be very good and tasteful, worth the price. But recently, I have experienced a terrible service, from the waitress to the manager, and also a dry, cold, and badly presented food. The drinks weren't so good as well. Better to eat in a... More

Staying in Jardins

Neighborhood Profile
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.
