Meat of the main dish was not salted and was of bad quality. Many locals and Italians visit the place so maybe I was not lucky with my choice. The service as well as the wine was good.

An Italian friend of mine had recommended this restaurant, so when we happened to be in the area one Saturday noon, we decided to have lunch there. We were promptly seated surrounded by lots of Italians which I thought must have been a good sign. And then we waited, and we waited. We for over an hour to get our... More

This place is good if you want to eat buffalo mozzarella in Brussels. It has got many original dishes, but if you are just looking for a pizza this place is too expensive an the pizza is not so good.

We eat here often, dependable delicious pizza and pasta with a friendly staff. My main man criticism is only that they are not open more hours.

Fratelli la Bufala is located closed to the trendy Place du Châtelain. The decor is simple but effective. For pizza lovers is ok but there are better alternatives close by (i.e. Mamma Roma) Other simple Italian dishes are not only a better option but a must. Service is friendly and a bit too quick to my taste. Wine list is... More

Pizza here is delicious, authentic pizza "napoletana", with the perfect mass and fresh ingredients. Wine is also very good and for similar prices than in other restaurants you get one of the best Italian red wines. Service is very good, friendly and quick. Overall, the best choice if you are looking for a real pizza.

Very good Italian cuisine. Just as simple as that. Reliable, good value for your money, a bit noisy but...hey! ... That's what a pizzeria is all about!

Although the food is tasty, it is very expensive for what you get (there are much better Italian restaurants in Brussels). In addition you get the feeling of being in a canteen with loud 80s and 90s disco coming out of the loudspeakers and at one point even loud Italian radio. This is not the atmosphere I'm looking for on... More

We tried only pizza, but it was really good. As a dessert, cannoli were good as well. The service was quick and kind. Highly recommended.
