Terraço Italia: back to Tuscany

italian

Italians love Italy, so this restaurant has been an institution since 1967. Come here for the typical Tuscan cuisine, but also for one of the best views in São Paulo.

Terraço Itália has belonged to the same family for nearly 50 years, so it is typically the restaurant where families go to celebrate a particular event. They get dressed up, they choose the tasting menu, and they share an extraordinarily convivial moment. But that's not all they share…

Located on the 41st floor of the Edificio Itália tower, the restaurant has a 360° view over the city, so you might imagine the evening panorama. It's also a little corner of Italy, more precisely Tuscany, lost in a Brazil where there are almost more Italians than in Italy itself. The chef is a native of Italy, a Florentine.

Pasquale Mancini's cuisine is like what you may find on the banks of the Arno. It has accents of the earth, of mushrooms, and of braised meat. His gnocchi and his spaghetti with pepperoncini are wonderful. At dinner, the atmosphere is more stylish, more elegant. If you are looking for something more relaxed, go upstairs and order a glass of great Brunello or an Argentine malbec at the piano bar. Also note, however, that Saturday lunchtime is feijoada (bean stew with beef and pork) time.
