“The Tagliatelle al Bacala was just spectacular!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

Went in to try the new menu by Paulo Kotzent last night. The service, food and chilean wine was 110%! The place just invites you to keep coming back for more. Two thumbs up!

“Expensive but very good, perfect for a romantic ocasion”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Its a wonderful place the spent the evening, good service, nice music, delicious food.
We loved al the plates we ate.
The couvert cost R$8/person and brings butter, cheese pate, olives and a veggie pate wthe delicious breads.
I dont recomend the tartare di capesante, ricci di mare e caviale, although very good and exquisite costs R$72 and its a really very small porcion (a size of a drink shot).
The main plates are good porcions and the precies vary about R$60 and R$90 - quite better options.
We end with an amazing chocolate terrine, R$21.
The wine list its expensive, the cheapest botlle would cost you R$72, so if you dont want spend that much dont ask for alcoholic drinks.

“Good”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Good italian option. It seems to me it's suffering from nearby competition which is tough, so is not so packed. Despite that, I recommend paying it a visit.

“Very nice and good portions”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

If you don't have enormous expectations on the genuinity of its claimed italian cuisine, you will have a very good dinner...large portions, very nice interiors and nice people. Usual 120/150R$ price per dinner

“Deception”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

The food does not surprise us, the risotto that my wife asked was disappointing (funghi). The wine, an Argentinean, Pinot Noir, was "so so". The service is poor, and still charge 12% and in Brazil it uses to be 10%. I and my wife don't recommend. There are a lot of better restaurants in São Paulo to go and enjoy.
