Description: 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.

“Great food - great quality - great atmosphere!”
Reviewed 4 December 2013 via mobile

A fantastic itilan restaurant with inside and outside seating in a very comfortable and quaint setting. From the road the restaurant appears to be quite small but once inside there is additional seating and a cantina downstairs. Great place to people watch as it appeared to draw a rather trendy crowd. Food was fantastic.. Parking in this is a bit difficult so i suggest taking a taxi and being dropped at the front door. Security was very good. I arrived at 8 pm and was promptly seated. By 10 pm people were standing out front waiting to be seated.

“A reliable neighborhood favorite”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 via mobile

Serafina is very reliable, affordable priced and popular so reservations are a must if you're eager to be seated. Their salads are always fresh and "substantial" and this makes for a great late afternoon or evening choice.

“Food with a good atmophere”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

This is an italian restaurant but it's very calm and relaxing. The place is very well decorated. The menu has a lot of good options, so at first you will get confused! Try the bruschetta first. It's very nice. We also ordered a juliana salad and a "spring risoto". All of them were very good! It's a bit overpriced, but the food is worthy.

“Cool Sao Paulo People Watching Place”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Great atmosphere and cool crowd. If you have time for a more dynamic working lunch in Sao Paulo, this is the place for you. Normally, weekday lunches in Sao Paulo follow a power lunch format. This is a nice breath of fresh air, albeit certainly attracts the elite of Sao Paulo. The place is a nice mixture of professional service, decent food and a more hip and modern room and crowd. The food is serviceable, but not outstanding. Wine list somewhat limited, favoring their house-branded wines.

“Value for money”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

It may not excel in food quality, but is consistently very good, reliable and offers an unmatched value for money in Sao Paulo. Very well located, it is typically busy and a bit noisy, but overall a great option in the Jardins region. I think pastas are better than pizza overall. Recommended.
