The neighborhood of Ipiranga doesn't have many restaurants but has some addresses that are worth the visit. Nico is one of them. Calm and warm atmosphere, open kitchen, it proposes a more sophisticated Italian cuisine that escapes the normal tone of the noisy canteens of...More

It's simple and good. Is not too expensive and the pasta has very good quality. I would recommend spaghetti or ravioli. Every pasta are home made and sauce is very tasty.

Named after the Ipiranga River, this region is home to
Independence Park, where it’s said Brazilian
Independence was proclaimed. Its gardens and the
tree-lined main street offer visitors a gracious view.
The neighborhood also hosts assorted museums and has a
strong local feel. Ipiranga is a calm area, with a
variety of good dining places and its own Municipal
Market, which features flowers, meat, vegetables,
