Very good Italian food

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.

Although the quality is excellent, lets face it - when we pay 16 euros for a plate of pasta as a main course you would expect to feel as though you've actually eaten something! There was less than 60 grams on the plate which was smaller than a starter portion by any standard. A typical Italian ripoff which by far... More

Hello everybody! Thank you all for all your great reviews! About the quantity of food we serve...I think it's the last of our problems, maybe the review was written thinking about another restaurant because our average pasta dish is 160/180 gr. It is usually considered "huge"! Ahahah. But if, and only if, it was a mistake on our behalf we... More

I came here as they offer gluten free pasta however I went for the steak which they assured me was suitable. It was my first rare steak and it was amazing! 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 tasted amazing. I would... More

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.
