Since we arrived it felt right. They really have in there a nice atmosphere and you can notice it from the look of the place and the staff member. We didn't have any table booked. We just went and walked in. We wait for a bit by the bar, grabbed the drinks and started enjoying the place. Fabulous service from... More

For sure this is the best meat in São Paulo! I would recommend the "Palmito Pupunha" for me is the best pupunha in the whole world !!!

The food was great and the price was extremely reasonable. I didn't expect to receive this much food. I ordered the rib eye and shared it with my friend. Sorry for the messy plate but just to give you an idea this is once slice of a four piece steak.

I`ve been to this restaurant a number of times because the beaf is just excellent. However this time an extremely unpleasant situation was that suddenly we had a cockroach on our table and the all the waiters and managers had to say was sorry.

I consider myself as a "meat person" and i tell you my friends... This place is something else. The decoration, lighting, ambient everything was cozy and relaxing. Fillet mignon was deliciously seasoned, incredibly juicy, perfectly medium cooked as i instructed. Side dish was butter rice with garlic and parsley and it was delicious. Wide selection of beers was good. And... More

This is a must go, salads, sides and any of the cuts will result on a perfect meal. Things lost a bit of flair with Marco Bassi's passing -- we really hope the family can keep it together.

The place to have a perfect brazilian style meat. Busy on weekends, may take more than an hour for a table. Come on taxi, quite dangerous neighborhood to walk.

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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.
