“Nice Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

We came on a quiet Sunday night and had a very nice time. The food is mostly what I would call Italian by my standards. The interior is very nice with a dark romantic atmosphere. Good risotto! Would come back next time.

“Beautiful Setting, Great Food in Jardins”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2013

My colleagues and I were worn out on our last night in Sao Paulo, and looking for a quiet place to eat close to our hotel. We found D'olivino which turned out to be a wonderful choice. We sat outside, which was a wonderful setting. Nice, quiet and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. The staff was very attentive and accomodating. They knew the menu and were prepared to make suggestions. We all loved our meals - the risotto I chose was top notch. My colleagues enjoyed thier entrees as well. I've read the other reviews given, and will concur that the dessert menu is rather limited; that and we were quite full so the temptation wasn't there anyways. Overall though, good wines, great food and wonderful ambience. I highly recommend D'olivino and if I make it back to Sao Paulo, I'll definitely go back to enjoy it again.

“Innovative dishes, cozy place and good service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2013 via mobile

Nice place to enjoy a quiet and romantic dinner. Offers Mediterranean dishes with a unique touch, however, the dessert menu needs some work and more creativity. Amazing caipirinhas. Price is moderate. I would go again!

“Excellent Food, Lovely Setting, Gracious Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2013

This is a very pretty restaurant in Jardins, a short, easy and safe walk from the Renaissance or any other hotel in the area, and offers really excellent cuisine (especially the elegant pastas, the equal of any such dishes anywhere in the world). The staff as well could not have been more helpful or gracious, and this is definitely an excellent choice for lunch or dinner when you're in the area.

“Wonderfully chill Mediterranean place in Jardins with excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2013 via mobile

My wife and I stopped in here on a hot afternoon to kill some time before our flight home. We were greeted and felt welcome despite our suitcases. We enjoyed a nice Chilean Sauvignon Blanc on the beautiful terrace before a rain shower chased us inside. Throughout the meal we were taken care of with a smile. The interior is well designed with a chill vibe and relaxing music. Highly recommended!
