Varied Italian menu. Salads are huge. Specials are few, but very tasty. Nice wine selection. Portions are good. Overall a nice experience, although a bit pricey.

Love it, fast service, reasonable prices (for Sao Paulo). They were very fast with the starters, and a nice location to sit. The past was good, maybe not the greatest choice to take the one with the filet, but a good quality dinner!

We had great appetizer. It was kind of a bruschetta with cheese and parma ham. It was the best part of the meal. The main dishes were also very good. The carbonara with parma ham and the shrimp risotto were tasty. Only problem was that, although staff was nice, service was slow and the restaurant wasnt full. It always hard... More

We went in a group of four people, around midnight. Had to wait 30 minutes for a table without reservation, but they treated us well at the bar. Food was great! I had a delicious gnocchi, cooked to perfection. Very recommended!

Obviously the place to be and also the place to be seen! The food was great! The waiters were kind, but an inexistant knowledge of English what makes it not always easy to be understood. We had to ask several times for a bottle of wine, but I think they were too busy having looks at the girl at another... More

My pizza arrived almost cold with the cheese a little bit hardened. I sat in front of the air conditioning and throughout dinner I noticed that at least three different waiters changed the power and direction of the wind. Icy blast on the face and on top of the food, not cool!

Nice outdoor patio with good service. A bit overpriced for what you get though. The bruchetta was excellent.

When we arrived we had to wait outside and ordered a few drinks and a starter. Soon after, we had a table available inside. The caipirinha I ordered was really good -- made with great cachaça and not a lot of sugar! I did not ordered a pasta as my friends did. I have to say the tunna with rocket... More

Great restaurant in Sao Paulo I highly recommend it. They have the best risottos I've ever had in the city and the meat is always cooked right.

Meal - cheesy pizza as first course: too much cheese, not enough of anything else (maybe add black olive or tomato?or both??); main, pasta bolognese was dull, beef too dry, too little tomato, and tasting neither like fresh nor like puree; little to tempt you for dessert - had a Cosmopolitan instead - though pineapple was pleasantly sweet; wine list...

Serafina Sao Paulo is located at the heart of the upscale Jardins neighborhood and housed in a
mansion built in 1908. The entrance features three Renascence-style arches to separate the veranda from the main building. Offering a piece of Italy in every detail, the walls are covered with paintings, drawing and phrases from the typical Napolitano trattorias. In the back; a small open-air Italian villa with a wood-burning stove enables delicious aromas to drift through the restaurant.

The kitchen is under the helm of the Chef Bruna Barbosa.
The menu focuses on Classic Nothern dishes. Our pizzas are made with special Italian our, extra virgin olive oil and sea salt imported from Sicily, baked in wood-burning stove. We offer two versions of the famous Margherita Pizza. On the menu, you can also find special salads as Serafina (Mixed green leaves, grilled chicken breast, roasted italian pine nuts, raisins and cherry tomatoes) and special dishes as the famous Farfalle Al Limoncello, Risotto Al Tartufo e Prosecco or Spaghetti Alla Provenzale (spaghetti with shrimp sauteed with garlic, white wine and tomato sauce.
