Description: Serafina Sao Paulo is located at the heart of the upscale Jardins neighborhood and housed in a mansion built in 1908. The entrance features three Renascence-style arches to separate the veranda from the main building. Offering a piece of Italy in every detail, the walls are covered with paintings, drawing and phrases from the typical Napolitano trattorias. In the back; a small open-air Italian villa with a wood-burning stove enables delicious aromas to drift through the restaurant. The kitchen is under the helm of the Chef Bruna Barbosa. The menu focuses on Classic Nothern dishes. Our pizzas are made with special Italian our, extra virgin olive oil and sea salt imported from Sicily, baked in wood-burning stove. We offer two versions of the famous Margherita Pizza. On the menu, you can also find special salads as Serafina (Mixed green leaves, grilled chicken breast, roasted italian pine nuts, raisins and cherry tomatoes) and special dishes as the famous Farfalle Al Limoncello, Risotto Al Tartufo e Prosecco or Spaghetti Alla Provenzale (spaghetti with shrimp sauteed with garlic, white wine and tomato sauce.

Loud, inconvenient music. This is not IBIZA, it's an Italian restaurant. Unattentive waiters; they pass by your table and look up, not down to see what you may need. Food sauce too tart (had the Farfalle). Too many people working but all seem confused. Way too far from the creator's vision nonetheless.

Went here for lunch and only had a salad. It was attractively plated and tasted very good too. I was disappointed that there was not a lunch menu or lunch specials because the prices are fine for dinner but kind of high for a lunch. The location and atmosphere is great. I will go back for dinner sometime but there are many other lunch options in the area.

Very pleasant place, with great pasta options and beatiful people. Quite expensive, however, but it is worth it for the food quality and the ambience.

The salads are big, the starters are delicious and the main course dishes are great! Good wine, with reasonable prices. The only bad point is the waiting time to get a table.

We had this venue on our list for a while, for it's well located, hyped and always busy.

Obviously, the place is run by pros and you won't be disappointed. We received good service, but the food itself was nothing to write home about, with one of our pastas not "al dente" and over-peppered. Prices are on a reasonable level given the neighborhood and proposition

This restaurant is definitely to see and be seen and is certainly a good place to have drinks.

We particularly disliked that the smoke from the outside consistently made its way into the closed dining area.

Been there, done that, not going back
