Very well seasoned and very tasty along with roast potatoes and rocket. My partner got the mussels pasta in a white wine sauce which also... read more

A very small and cosy place. I ordered a pasta from the special menu. We were received by the owner a very friendly person. I think it was a bit pricy for an Italian restaurant, but the food is really good it is worth the price. I recommend a visit to this place.

This a small, family run Italian gem in a quiet area of Brussels The owner returns to Italy regularly to bring back many of the items on the menu. They have nice daily specials and some marvelous wines that are available by the half and full liter, The food and service were both top notch. It is a small restaurant... More

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.
