A classy new addition to the Jardins cocktail scene, Tutto Italiano has all the hallmarks of a New York speakeasy. Its art deco finish – mirrors, chrome, woods and leather banquettes – is beautifully lit in soft yellow by wall lamps, making it a sophisticated spot for trysting or a drink alone, with that rare-to-find-in-SP quality of seating at the bar.
The drinks are on the pricey side, but they’re nothing out of the ordinary by Jardins standards. So make your choice carefully, and settle down for an elegant, slowly savoured drink. A solid selection of Italian bitters go into interesting cocktails like the Negroni Sbagliato (R$23), a perfectly balanced red concoction of Campari, Aperol and red vermouth, with a sweet dash of prosecco.

The head barman is one Marcelo Vasconcellos, whose mixology magic is behind many of the city’s drinks menus. His signature drink here is a Lotus Martini (R$25) – a dizzying blend of vodka, fresh lychee cream, Guaraná fizzy pop, fresh grapefruit, raspberry syrup, and a dash of Cointreau. We tried the lemongrass martini (R$25) instead, with Tanqueray gin, lemongrass and fresh green apple. It was pleasant enough but lacking any real punch. If you’re more in the mood for a glass of wine, best look elsewhere: there’s just one option by the glass here, and it’s an overpriced Frascati (R$17).

The entrance to the bar is on Rua Doutor Melo Alves – not to be confused with the entrance round the corner on Alameda Tietê, which leads to the establishment’s adjacent Italian restaurant.

Tutto Italiano is currently closed for refurbishment
