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.

“Dinner @ Serafina”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Went for dinner in Serafina. The staff were very friendly. Though they do not seak much English, they were very attentive.
The ambiance is good and it is a nice place to sit, chat and eat.
Food quality was great. The place is reasonably priced.

“Average Italian food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Serafina is an in-place in São Paulo and who am I to protest. However, the food is just average and the service is not very good at all. Yes, Serafina is "IN" and as such it's a great place to see people, but food and service have to be the core strengths oif a good restaurant, and Serafina does not have them.

“Went back there the next day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

One of the best meals I had on a 12 day trip through Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil. Went there for lunch one day, had amazing pesto and handmade pasta. Then went back for dinner the next night. No "cover charge" like many other restaurants, some of the better food, good service, great location.

“Noisy!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

I could not understand the proposal of the restaurant, Italian food in an underground disco? Sound was so loud one could not hear centimeters away. I asked the waiter to lower music, but he said it was the house's policy...strange! I had to eat with all this noise and finally ended up with a headache. Despite the music, the house is ok, well decorated. I also liked the food, we had chicken breast and different pizzas, but no way special... I could do much better at home; anyway, prices are not so high, I guess it is a compensation!

“Lacks high international standards in food preparation, service and value.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

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.
