A real taste of Tuscany in Brussels! Recommended by my hotel, and I'm glad I gave it a try. The roast beef dish was amazing, especially with the Vino Nobile de Montepulciano!

Our concierge recommended this restaurant, so we dined their the first night we were in Brussels. The owners were very friendly and the bread was delicious. Unfortunately, the food was only average and a bit pricey.

We visited this lovely little family owned restaurant for dinner of a Sunday and luckily it wasn't crowded. We made a reservation for 8:30pm and the service was very welcoming, friendly management and also original menu. The specials for the day were really special! We also ordered home made dessert which was fantastic! The prices are a bit expensive we... More

We were delighted to get such fresh creative Italian food in Belgium. The atmosphere is welcoming on a bustling alley in Sablon with great people watching opportunities. The food was amazing. It was clear the owner was from Tuscany and has a passion for food. He and his staff were very welcoming and friendly. It was by far the best... More

Good service and great pasta. Probably best to come early or make a reservation beforehand as usually quite crowded. Worth it.

Visited this restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel concierge. The meals were enjoyable. Very authentic, as a result of the owner being from Italy and importing his products. Its a relatively small restaurant and reservations seem to be required. The sauces for the pasta and chicken were very tasty, service was friendly and efficient. Would recommend for tourists looking... More

The owner, Lorenzo, is from Tuscany as is nearly all of his staff. The ingredients are fresh and the preparations are perfectly Tuscan. This was our best meal in Brussels by far. Order the Chianti Classico if you love red wine. Its from the owner's family vineyard. Theplacewas full of locals on a Friday night. Always a good sign. If... More

Oh, where to start... This must have been the worst eating out experience for years! As others have mentioned the owner/waiter was extremely friendly and attentive outside and explained the menu in detail. As soon as we were seated he forgot us. They forgot our order of water. But to their credit they remembered our beer and wine. My tortellini... More

Even though the food was good and super fresh (the Chianti was tasty!), I was so disappointed in the service. At first, the owner explained the menu to us in a very nice and friendly way, but then left us alone for the rest of the evening. He kept standing at the counter and stared at his tablet while mostly... More

Hello everybody, I'm writing this answer on my tablet, happily I'm not alone in the restaurant: there is a person that works with me in the room even if the restaurant is not too big. It has been necessary to get some help since we opened another little place and I'm often very busy with also all the administration and... More

Visited this place for lunch after reading reviews. Had we not read the glowing reviews we would most likely have walked straight past as it didn't look anything from the outside. We walked up and down this little street looking at other restaurants before settling on this one. Inside, there were 7 tables downstairs and another handful upstairs. We each... More
