Lonely Planet review
Tucked off a busy downtown street on the ground floor of the Maletta building, this beloved local institution has been feeding belorizontinos into the wee hours for over 50 years. Vest-and-tie-clad waiters navigate through a landscape of checked tablecloths and wood paneling, hefting trays of mineira food and pasta. Especially popular after the Sunday hippie fair in nearby Parque Municipal.
