Staying in Vila Madalena I was struggling to find anywhere open on a Monday night - Genesio is one of the few places which does open on Mondays, and it was pretty quiet but not entirely empty! Service was brisk and efficient. I had a couple of glasses of decent Chilean red wine and a plate of tasty pasta, the... More

I had been to Genesio before but it is always crowded and I we always sit outside. I never liked the servide and it was a place I never cared to review or recommend. This time we were in 5 with kids so we decided to sit inside, the fastest table we could get. The service from Mr. Deusimar was... More

Been there many times. Perfect place to have a great informal lunch in an authentic non touristic place. Beer and caipirinhas are as good as you can get. Him my traditional igalian-flavored dishes. Great service and great vibe. Not to be missed

Nice typical "paulista" place to meet regional specialties. Try the rice balls (bolinho de arroz) with draft beer (black) and order any pasta. Don´t forget the "petit gateau" for dessert. They prepare it in 20 minutes, but is worth!!!!!

For a late, late dinner. Have a good menu for finger food. The waiters are knowed by the name and the place is a total mix of youth, vintage and everyone else.

Traditional Villa Magdalena place, alive and vibrant this is one of the survivors from the continuous churning mill of this section of the city. The place is simple, fast, for some people it might mean crowdy and noisy, but that is precisely part of the charming attractive (at peak times It is indeed noisy and it is hard to be... More

This is a cool pub to enjoy. Big groups of friends gather together for a cold "Chopp" and some food. The environment is traditional "boteco" and finger food are really nice. Enjoy!
