Badly trained headwaiter. Judges you by your appearance and decides who can come in and who cannot. Belo Horizonte has a long way to go to become civilized and realize that people come in all shapes and colours. Not an isolated incident.

Restaurant was well recommended. We went late, after a concert. The place is charming. Has inside space more formal, outside varanda, spacious, more casual. Service was slow. We cancelled desert since hadn't come after 30 mins. The food was ok, but nothing extraordinary. I had badejo fish with Lemmon crust, my girlfriend ravioli pomodoro.

I have to admit if you want an amazing meal go here, the food was perfect. However, there are a few things I didn't like such as the snobbish attitude of the waiters and they could be a bit more attentive and accommodating. Other than that the food was perfection.

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.
