Chef Jefferson Rueda narrates a wide-lens Italian menu of subtle caprese, truffle asparagus and foie gras appetizers followed by an incredible pasta course topped with ingredients like langoustines, shrimp and truffle. Main course dabbles in land and sea with grilled meats, slow-cooked specialties and regional Italian dishes with a Brazilian twist.
With an architectural pedigree that includes an exterior penned by Daniel Libeskind, Attimo is a visual and culinary dining institution that manages to live up to the hype. Visitors arrive to a grand marble-clad façade trimmed in tropical landscaping that’s walking distance to the city’s Ibirapuera Park. A cubist entrance leads past a glassed-in bar with marble flooring and into a more formal main dining room of herringbone wood floors, creamy leather-accented seating and small terrace overlooking a water garden.
