Popular Pizzeria in São Paulo: Quintal do Braz

November 20, 2016

Vila Mariana, the district where we stayed in São Paulo, has many good restaurants. One of the most popular and famous is Quintal do Braz (now called Braz Quintal), a pizzeria only a short walk from our apartment building.  My advice is to get there early because it gets very crowded and there’s a long wait to get in.  We were lucky – being American tourists, we are used to wanting dinner by 7:00 pm, so we were shown to a table right away!

Quintal do Braz was so good, and so close to where we were staying, that we returned there the following night.  Here is my review on Trip Advisor:

Loved it so much we ate here twice in a row! The menu is almost exclusively pizzas but with every conceivable topping, including fried egg, asparagus, etc. It is very popular so usually crowded – expect a wait if you visit during high traffic times (6:30-8:30 pm).

A partial view of the crowds – the space is very large. There are tables outside as well, but the weather was a bit too cool for sitting outside.

Since we wanted to share, it was hard to choose from the many delicious combinations on the menu! We finally had to compromise.


Here are some more pictures of the delicious pizzas at Quintal do Braz that I downloaded from Google:

This is one of the pizzas we had – with egg, asparagus, bacon, and other toppings.

These mouth-watering photos are making me hungry! But I’ve never encountered a pizzeria that compares to Braz Quintal!
