Good quality Italian food via either a buffet or set menu. Pizza and bread etc made on a wood fired oven. Buffet with very nice selection of Italian classics and some more Brazilian flavors mixed in. We went here on a Saturday evening and found a table quite easy. It offers (valet) parking.

The best salad and pasta buffet you'll taste, every single option is just great. The pizzas are also very good. It can be expensive, but worth the investment if you want to enjoy a night out or celebrate.

Too noisy due to the size of the restaurant. Usually I used to love Rascal, but Quality and service was much better in the past. Food was good, but nothing special and the lemonade was a disaster...water with a slice of lemon.

If you have missed nice Mediterranean food, this is probably the best option in São Paulo. A great buffet with salads, pizza, grilled vegetables, salami, cheese, peppers and any other Mediterranean starter is accompanied by 6-7 main courses based on pasta, lasagna and sea food. I will go back again. Tip: it's too popular so book even if you go... More

Food used to be very good here, especially the pizzas. This time it was terrible. Looked like microwaved pasta with a terrible polpettone. The ravioli with cheese and banana stuffing was awkward. Pasta, cold in a warmed-up tomato sauce. Polpettone, greasy. Very expensive too. By no means the meal is worth the money. Never more, a disaster!

I love Rascal! I always order the buffet option, where, for a fixed price, you can eat whatever you want! From entrees to salad, past and meat the food has a awesome quality! I highly recommend it! One of my favorites restaurants in town!

After walking Avenida Paulista on Sunday morning we stopped for an early lunch. The salad bar was wonderful, I could have just kept going back for more, so many selections. The dessert choices were wonderful...I could have had a second slice of the apple pie. However, disappointed in the pasta bar...I had the linguini and Alfredo, very flat not very... More

Staying in Jardins

Neighbourhood Profile
Jardins
Located just below important Paulista Avenue, Jardins is the junction of four smaller neighbourhoods: Jardim Paulista, Jardim América, Jardim Europa and Jardim Paulistano. It is an upper-class area, offering a variety of things to do, including shopping, museums and parks. The neighbourhood is well known for “Oscar Freire”– the most luxurious street in the city, packed with high-end boutiques. In Jardins you will also find a trendy museum, São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS), which people often line up for hours to visit. If green space is what you're after, take time to relax at Trianon Park, a refuge in the heart of Paulista Avenue.
