Famiglia Mancini - one of the best restaurants in Sao Paulo

It's always the same: waiting in a queue to get in at Famiglia Mancini's. It's amazing how famous is this traditional Italian restaurant in Sao Paulo. Located at the first renewed street in the center of Sao Paulo inspired in European cities, it has brought a new life to the suburb.
Further the pasta, it's possible to find antipastos, meat, chicken and fish - an extensive menu of typical Italian dishes. This place has been very successful on its original proposal of bringing a bit of Italy into Sao Paulo's hearth.
A good option is the Lamb Cacciatore with "polenta" (cooked corn's porridge), roasted with white wine, olives and peas. One of the most requested dishes is the Conchiglia to Quadrifoglio, stuffed with four cheeses and covered with white sauce, basil, cream cheese and nuts. Well decorated and in a really Italian mood, it's a good tip for Mediterranean food admirers.
