Vecchio Sogno has been considered the best restaurant in BH for a long time not only for the selected menu or the refined service, but because of the idea that you are entering another atmosphere, one we don't have to stay in touch with in any other places around. It is a time capsule experience. Said that, the ristorante is... More

Dinner with a group of foreign colleagues visiting Belo Horizonte for business. None of us speak Portuguese. But ordering wasn't the problem. Quality of the food wasn't the problem either, it was really fantastic. The problem was that it was a reasonably quiet night and they had nearly as many waiters as customers. And they thought it was acceptable for... More

Very tasteful dishes. We had fish (lenguado) and tortellini as the main courses and mushrooms with herbs as a starter. Everything was very tasteful and perfectly presented. The starter - sugested by the waiter - was delicious. The wine cart offered many options for wine fans. We drank bazilian red wine Vinha Maria from Petrolina. A must try. The only... More

Very good restaurant in downtown Belo Horizonte. Excellent food for fine dinning in a great atmosphere with live piano music. Very friendly staff. The price is unfortunately the downside.

Very nice environment with occasional piano music played that adds to the dinning experience. The food was delicious and they accommodated for my vegetarian preference in choices. They were willing to alter some of their plates to meet my needs.

Vecchio Sogno has been the best restaurant in town for many years. The food is consistently well executed, the menu is quite big, mixing tradicional italian dishes with innovations and brazilian ingredientes. The ambient is refined, with a piano bar and a clean decoration. The service is great, although very formal, and the wine list has no competition. Isn't a... More

Pretentious and expensive for an experience that is below the average in terms of high end Brazilian restaurants. Predictable: fine food, but lacks personality. It is a good choice for business occasions as the restaurant is reasonably quiet and tables are conveniently far from each other, allowing privacy. The service is very good.

It is considered the best italian restaurant in town, and indeed it is the best, including the service!! They have a traditional italian menu, and I recommend the gnochi with shrimp or the fish with shrimp. The cheese sorbet with guava paste is a traditional Minas taste and an excelent choice for dessert!! The elegant environment with a very nice... More

Due to price I was expecting a extreme experience, however did not happen. The dishes are delicious but nothing that can take you to another world. Waiters are very well trained for sure you will get good treatment. Take care when ask for a taxi at the exit. The restaurant call a private car so agree about the price before

A very good and traditional restaurant in Belo Horizonte. Food and wine are good, with a very professional service. It is ok for work dinner or for a romantic night. Grilled seafood is especially good. A bit expensive.
