Typical restaurant in Belo Horizonte with a nice terrace (however with a view on a street with high trees full of cars) and a more quiet and formal restaurant in the back. The food reminds of Italy (legacy or the Fiat assembly plant built in Belo Horizonte) but with strong Brazilian influence (large steaks) and with an excellent choice of... More

Had a chance to go for business meeting on a Monday night. The restaurant is not very big, but loved the open windows, floor to ceiling. Service was good. We had a hot appetizer, some mushrooms with a pecorino cheese sauce. Yummy. Then the poached veal fillets with pasta and again a nice cheese sauce, as well as a rice... More

Where are the good old days when this place was the best in town? All was good from the breads to the deserts and the service Nowadays the place has lost its charm- and may be also the will to be excellent So it is just average. The terrace remains an attractive point.

It is a nice restaurant that serve a variety of Brazilian and international plates. I came back for more of an special cheese that they serve with the couvert. I had a nice fish with risotto. The caipirinhas (of many flavors) are nice !!! The baked Alaska was great !!!

Surprisingly, Belo Horizonte - off the beaten tourism track - does really well with its restaurants and food. My and my family really enjoyed this place. 2 different seating areas - one more formal, the other less formal but still stylish. The wine menu is very extensive and good and we all had great meals. My dad said the best... More

Excellent restaurant for lunch, dinner and even take a wine evening, as it has sidewalk tables and is a very quiet street. Excellent service, extensive wine list and delicious desserts. The cost is high, but worth it.
