I would definitely recommend O Passos for the awesome food and the indoor and outdoor environment they provide. The pizza was delicious and the flavorful petit gateau really made our romantic dinner complete. There was a 30-minute wait when we arrived, so be ready for spending some time waiting. I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

I went to O Passo twice today. Had lunch on the terrace by myself (and felt utterly comfortable doing so): insalata surpresa was a real surprise! Huge; loaded with prosciutto, cheese, ripe and sundried tomatoes perfectly rehydrated. Then went back for dinner with my husband. We sat inside because it was coldish. The service was fantastic and the food was... More

O Passo in our opinion deserved its #2 position in Ouro Preto. The pizza's are really excellent. Freshly made, richely topped and thinly crusted. The restaurant is full of atmosphere and there is a stunning terrace. The menu and service are in Portuguese, but the service is really friendly. They make good caipirinha's, as well.

I ordered a mushroom pizza and what i got was pizza without a mushroom. so I am trying to tell the waiter and instead of him doing anything about it, he starts arguing. finally he takes it back and gives me pizza with raw mushrooms sprinkled. his behaviour was extremely impolite. my whole appetite died.

i and my husband were there at dinner and we felt like Julia Roberts on pretty woman. the waiter look all over us from the top to the bottom as he was judging if we were able or not to being there. After that, he was rude when we asked for a pizza size small and just started to be... More

This place has an amazing food and a lot of options of beers and wine. However it's quite pricy for the Brazilian standards. But from time to time is worth it.

Italian food seems very popular in Brazil and there a lots of pizza/pasta restaurants. This one was very good. Its a lively comfortable restaurant on the first floor of a colonial town centre building. Its made up of lots of rooms, each had a different decor. Our 'room' was large and the tables were well spaced. It was adjacent to... More

We had our best meal of our two week trip at this place, can't recommend highly enough. The pizzas and desserts were exceptional. The beer selection was also the best of our trip - I enjoyed the Belo Horizonte craft beers!

We went to o passo for lunch. The place is very nice, a colonial building with internal gardens and lots of light. The wine list is good, prices are also ok and the food is really, really good. I had poivre steak and pasta and hubby had risotto and both were well served and tasty. The only con, if we... More

The pizza is excellent, the wine was very fairly priced and of excellent quality, and the steak was divine. We loved the food, the service, the ambiance..everything. Highly recommended. NB: I try to avoid Pizza restaurants in general, but this one was exceptional.
