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.
MASP is a must if you are in São Paulo.
You will see work by van Gough, Renoir, Modigliani, Cezanne, Monet and Picasso to name a few. The art is well displayed and you can get very close to it without being mobbed by crowds.
Located on Avenue Paulista the works are housed in a very cool, albeit a bit...
"Great exhibitions, great restaurant. And not overbearing"
reviewed 1 week ago by erf2008
It's almost like a gallery to show Japanese artists and organize cultural happenings. The exhibits are usually great. The restaurant is fantastic, but very expensive. It is not your usual sushi bar, but rather "haut-cuisine". To be frank, it is worth every penny.
One important complaint: exhibits all have only Portuguese explanations. In such a place, at least English is...
Located on 9th July Avenue down some steps is a hidden cafe/bar. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it had a cool vibe and was busy with people eating and drinking. In fact we struggled to find a table and eventually perched on a bench.
The Bexiga district was once home to the tens of thousands of Italian immigrants who arrived in São Paulo in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. However, like its New York counterpart, the overwhelming majority of their descendants now live elsewhere.
The Italian influence is still reflected in a number of restaurants, pizzerias and bakeries, festivals and a church...

"The best place to find the best meat!"
reviewed 4 weeks ago by KaterinaBouza
The excellent quality of the meat and the way the food is prepared is the most remarkable part of this restaurant. We ate the best "costela" which was prepared 8 hours in the oven and for side dish we had grilled palmito with and excellent sauce based on mustard Dijon. The portions were big and in comparison with other similar...
Being old, they have experience, so they know how to treat a client. From the moment of entering in the restaurant, until keeping all the time an eye on you, to put wine in your glass, or a slice of pizza and they offer the best experience possible. The pizza that we ate was Siciliana and Calabrese Especiale, and were...
I loved how fast they work from entrance to bill. The kitchen (part of it) is open if you like to cook then you will love to sat in the common table very close to the chefs and watch them working!
Marvellous dish! Mine was not that good (oxtail with gnocchi) but my friends' were! I tasted them all. Loved...
Chose to stay at the hotel due to its proximity to Paulista for the New Year's Celebration, and found that the hotel was wonderful!!! The breakfast at the hotel is outstanding with a wide selection, the room was quite comfortable and clean, and is located close to so many places to go and things to see!!! Overall was a wonderful...
Everything well done, in a classic way. Nothing fancy but everything you need is here, and service is attentive.
Good little details that matter, for example the water is filtered at the tap, so you don't need to buy liters of bottled water all the time.
Great city views esp from upper floors.
The only thing is that the decor...

I enjoyed 3 nights stay there on the 17th floor. Clean new facility with separate sit out and state of the art bath room. Microwave oven and induction cooker are added advantage. Utensils are available on request. Staff speak English and very helpful. I would go back there again. Krish Pillai USA
This is a simple hotel...the rooms are basic with worn woodwork. But, the staff is truly one of nicest I have met. The breakfast is wonderful and the location is excellent if you need to visit FGV.
While the rooms are simple, the beds are comfortable and the floors have been redone with laminated wood style, which is clean and...
My plane landed at 9 am I arrived to the hotel at 10:30 they had a room available and had no problem checking me in early, breakfast was awesome as well. Room kinda small but it works. Quiet area at night.
