    Famiglia Mancini (Italian): A tradition In Sao Paulo!

    by xuxaBR Written Apr 11, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To describe this restaurant isn’t easy…I’ve known Famiglia Mancini for long time and the experience is always the same: great!
    It’s a family tradition to the Paulistanos to go to Famiglia Mancini on weekends…or any other day!
    The food is excellent! From pastas to pizzas, the salad buffet with huge heart of palms that I love so much, the selection of Italian wine, the service, all is done to perfection!
    To know what I’m trying to describe is only living the experience.... go there and enjoy

    Favorite Dish: I love it all...lasagna, fettuccini...everything; but what I love the most is the salad buffet for its variety and delicious heart of palms...

    Try it...

    Famiglia Mancini and Walter Mancini: Oppulent Cantina And Refined With Live Jazz

    by schurlif Updated Oct 4, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These two heavens for lovers of italian cuisine (and don't forget , at least 35 % of São Paulos 18 million inhabitants are of italian descendence) are across from each other at the beginning curve of one way Avanhandava Street in Bela Vista , Famiglia Mancini being the oppulent , richly decorated cantina with an incredible self service antipasti buffet with at least 35 items , from sun dried tomatoes to mouth watering colds and cheeses , fresh salmon , artichokes , funghi , just beauuuuutifull..... If you still have space to eat more afterwards , the waiter will come and put a big tissue napkin around your neck , so the tomato , meat or pesto sauce from the excellent home made pasta will not drip on your clothes.....
    Across the street , a spin off , Walter Mancinis restaurant , same food , but the place is ultra chic , post modern , live jazz music every night , distinguished , expensive but not stuck up at all...
    Both restaurants are first class , each in its own theme , I highly recommend for their unpretentious approach to italian food and highest quality in food and service.
    ( Don't even try Famiglia Mancini on Sundays for lunch , there are always like 50 people waiting in the street to get a table.....)

    Favorite Dish: I love the antipasti buffet , I can't resist those goodies and the fresh , crunchy italian bread.....
    Every once in a while I might eat a pasta dish which always is delicious...... It's just that I avoid any calorie bombs if I can do without.....
    But they make the food with so much know how and affection that everything just tastes too good..... Try as a dessert in any of the two places Crème Brulée and you'll be done for the rest of the day.....

    Famiglia Mancini: Great Italian Restaurant

    by maryellen50 Updated Jan 16, 2003

    I was recommended to eat here by my Sao Paulo guide. This restaurant is located in the Italian section of downtown Sao Paulo. The food was simply wonderful. I am a vegetarian so there was a good selection of meatless pasta dishes and the salad bar was FANTASTIC. This is one of the BEST italian restaurants in the world!

    Favorite Dish: Gnocchi with white sauce and the salad bar!
