Not only the food is great (Italian) but also this is one of the most pleasant restaurants in SP, specially the back plaza with its beautiful trees

not very good service. Nasty owner, but the food is good. The various levels of the place create a good atmosphere.

Most pasta is home made, except grano duro. Excellent service and food, but a little slow service. Some draws of Oscar Niemeyer in walls. A great wine chart, with good options. One dish is for one, and that is it.

Nice environment, good location. The wine selection is wide and good, with the staff ready to provide good advice on which wines go better with your selection of food.
This place has a reputation for their gnocchi, said to be the best gnocchi of Sao Paulo; but, I was not impressed, the gnocchi's outside texture was too soft, almost watery, and they served too little dressing. The overall experience, service, food is pleasant., but the gnocchi... I am sorry, but there are much better gnocchi in other Sao Paulo's places. This reputation is just another urban legend.
One good feature: some nights they have live music shows. On the night I was there they have a wonderful jazz band, I was blow away by the skills of the musicians, the voice of the singer, and the assembled performance of the band. Pleasure for any music lover. I will go back because the overall experience is good, but I will schedule for the jazz band.

Just a little bit rough to park, but once your are there, go to the back tables that look to a small garden, with a big Jaboticab tree. Romantic pasta place.
