I always feel that pasta is over-priced in restaurants, but the variety of styles and sauces on offer here (not huge but authentic Tuscan) were delicious. There are some unnecessarily querky bits, such as the pallette and post-it note menus, but overall the decor is typical eclectic Italian. The real wow for me was the roasted beef. Super thin slices,... More

We were nicely attended to with explanations of the regions of Tuscany where each dish originated and specific ingredients that made each dish unique and special.

Extremely slow service, food far below average, it they are only serving pasta it should be first class and it was everyrhing but that. Extremely disappointing.

good product, passionate people and good food. It'a a bit pricey (18 euros for an entree and 20 euro for a main if far too much in my opinion), but you stand up happy and full. The decor is average.

This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Brussels. The antipasti are classic but of very good quality. We usually go for a mixed plate that we share. There are 4 different types of cheese together with a fruit jam, different types of cold cuts and grilled vegetables. To me what makes this restaurant special are the main dishes... More

Walking along the streets, away from the usual tourist spots we stumbled on this little place and decided to go in for lunch. So glad we did. It was a great lunch. The staff was super friendly and helpful, the servce was great and the food was very good. It is a small restaurant with only a few tables and... More

The decor of this place is not at all appealing, but we thought we should judge the place by its food instead. On the plus side: Service was courteous and fast On the down side: The pasta was nothing special and overpriced; the house wine was of poor quality: coffee was a disgrace; the decor is kitsch. To be fair,... More

Five of us really enjoyed this small & very simply decorated restaurant with its authentic Tuscan food. We ate hearty portions of very well prepared food from the small menu and enjoyed wines which we were told came from their own vineyard in Italy. Had friends not booked another restaurant for the next night we would not have hesitated to... More

If you like Tuscan food this is one to try! If you don't like dishes with meat or large healthy portion or food cooked with olive oil and served with good wine by professional staff, go somewhere else.... My wife and I visited with good friends on 15/11 for dinner having visited earlier for lunch ourselves. I'm so glad we... More
