Was keen of italian food so found this nice restaurant. Had a pesto pasta that was very nice. The staff is very nice and they serve you the food in a very nice way. They also have some musicians most days that entertain you with italian songs, very nice!

I've been there today for lunch. Was very disappointed. More of a tourist place. Food is quite heavy and not so tasty. Don't recommend. Was very disappointed.

I totally recommend this place, once is our favorite "cantina" in Sao Paulo. Every single time we went there we had a great experience in terms of service, food, and place. Food is deliciously tasty, waiters are very kind and attentive and the place is very cozy. The price is just fair, when compared to other similar options.

What can I say?? Cantina Roperto is a place that has not changed for decades. What they do is what they know. Home made pasta like no other. Have any type any way you want. We had goat with a garlic broccoli and potatoes. The star of the meal was the fusili with a red tomato sauce. Don't miss this... More

Excelent Italian Food in the heart of the "Bexiga" (Little Italy Neighborhood). The Ravioli, Angneolotti and Lazanha are the best picks in this great place to go in São Paulo.

Lovely food, but since the old owner has died the service is getting worse which is sad and frustrating. As a person who comes here all the time I recommend pesto sauce, it's the best!

First off, the food is Italian, but it's not like the Italian food I've had in Italy. Then again, the Italian food I've had in the U.S. is often not like the Italian food in Italy, so I'm not going to criticize it for that. We tried several things including manicotti and some pasta with marinara type of sauce and... More

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighbourhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighbourhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
