Good pizza for locals and tourists

A nice cosy restaurant that works for couples or larger groups. They do a good pizza. Given it is very close to Grand Place prices are reasonable. The service was really nice actually, which isn't always the case in Brussels.

just off the Grand Place. This is the second time I have used this with a party of 10+, but it is suitable for single travellers and couples. Large menu with something for all. Service very good. Steak and mushrooms were excellent.

We ended up eating here twice as the first time was so good. On each visit we tried pasta and pizza. Tasty food using fresh ingredients. Friendly service. Not far from Grand Place so nice and central.

Near the Grand Place. Good and cheap. For example la pizza quatro formaggio € 11,80. It's a good alternative for dinner or lunch may be.

We had a lovely lunch here. The food and service were both excellent. My pizza fruits de mer was packed with seafood and was delicious but very filling. The calamari starter we shared was also excellent. House dry white wine was better than many. We would certainly return.

After looking around for a nice Italian restaurant we came across this restaurant, first impressions was it was nearly full and the crowd looked like they were enjoying themselves. I had the best pizza I'd eaten for a long time. The service was excellent the food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. The staff spoke english too.

I often travel to Brussels on business and like to stay near the Grand Place. Giannino is right there. It's a great first night dinner, since it's a short walk from the hotel. The food is "comfort food" -- not too expensive, not too elegant, tasty, and a good start to a busy week. The proprietors treat us well and... More

We went to this restaurant whilst staying in Brussels. It was only two mins from our hotel and had excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. I would definitely reccomend a visit here, the food was delicious, we both had pizza and couldnt fault either at all. The staff are very polite and friendly (which isnt the case for everywhere in Brussels!).... More
