“Excelent Pasta”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

If you would like to have a good pasta (very different from Pasta from EUA) you should go to this restaurant. São Paulo has very much Italian influence due to many Italian immigrants so you can have a good quality food in Sao Paulo from every culture but to the experience become completed you must to have a good Brazilian/Italian Pasta.

“Great place for a great night”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

The trattoria part of a complex located on a small street that includes a pizzaria and a restaurant.
The food is exellent, the staff is great and the visit is worth the wait because lines are very common. If you think the line is too long, try crossing the street to their restaurant wich is also great and has amazing live music, altough it will most likely have a line too.

“Another example of overcooked stodgy pasta ala São Paulo”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

The thing that gets me about São Paulo is the undying loyalty paulistanos show to certain restaurants, even when they're expensive, and the food quality is not good.

Or maybe it's just that paulistanos like overcooked, stodgy pasta with a dollop of white sauce of low if any real dairy content.

Frankly, I won't be eating again there in a hurry.

“The best tratoria in town”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

This traditional trattoria in Downtown São Paulo is a city landmark.

Located in a charming street, surrounded by others restaurants, some from the same FM owner, it has been a famous venue in SP for years.

Lines are very common, but it is 100% worthy, while free cheeses bites are given to entertain the liners.

Very nice selection of cheese, pastry and laaaarge plates, serving 2-3 people easily.

And the atmosphere tells itself this is a São Paulo "must go" for sure.

Enjoy!

“Great ambiance, good wine selection, excellent cheeses,”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

One of my favorites spots in Sao Paulo, if you are hungry is the best place to eat, but please hear my advice, every single entree can be and should be shared, the portions are huge, without sacrificing taste or quality, recommendation......go before 7:00PM if not, I guarantee you at least 1 hour wait, BUT worth it.......
