Positively buzzing with energy, this Itaim Bibi mainstay is arguably the finest Italian restaurant in town. The space is lined with dozens of windows, and is popular with both families and business people. The most affordable way to try this eaterie is to come for the delicious prix fixe lunch (R$51) Monday to Friday, which includes a light snack, an appetiser, a main course and a dessert.
If you’re choosing from the a la carte menu, try the tagliolini ao sugo with shrimp – all the pastas are home-made. While the restaurant highly recommends its beefsteak florentine, the meat can be a bit chewy. Lunch reservations are not accepted, so come early, around 12.30pm at the latest, to get a seat.
Add a great view into the mix at the newer rooftop location in Shopping Cidade Jardim.
