Very good Italian

This is probably one of the best Italian restaurants in Brussels. Great choice of delicious, traditional Italian restaurants. Especially the chefs recommendations are superb. I had a great carpaccio as a starter and pasta vongole as a main. The pasta was very well cooked, the mussels fresh, the... read more

Great Italian restaurant in the center of Brussels, near Avenue Louise! Nice spacious setting and decor, with outdoor eating facility. Very nice and helpful staff. And good food of course!

Dolce Amaro never fails to make you feel welcome, and are always willing to go that extra mile. Since the first time I went there a couple years ago, I have been dozens and dozens of time for both business and pleasure. Excellent service, great wine list, and food to die for, oh and if you are trying to lose... More

We were welcomed at the restaurant, at rush hour, with no prior reservation and that was not a problem for the polite hostess. The waiters informed us on the day's plate and they made clear with all possible means what the various dishes were based on. We had a very taste mozzarella based starter and the main dish was very... More

This upscale Italian restaurant offers a wide choice of daily selections beside the classics on the menu. My companion particularly enjoyed the Vitello Tonato as a starter, but my grilled octopus was rather bland. The fish we took for mains was fresh and well prepared, but could have done with a bit of good olive oil and some seasoning. Service... More

The place to be for authentic Italian food. Great team of staff welcomes you if on a Saturday night without reservation, full restaurant, but they found a table within 10 minutes. Price/Quality standards remarkably good. When we left we had the feeling if we were coming already there for many years, we definitively will come more often.

I was taken here on a visit to brussels by two local based colleagues. The place it truly Italian, really. The server gave us a few recommendations which were superb: raw fish starter followed by "paccheri" pasta with octopus. Excellent quality and look forward to returning on my next trip to Brussels :)

My first impression was the tasteful design interior decoration, then the warm welcome by the simpatico Italian staff, and last but not least the exquisite food. The grilled octopus was just perfect, not at all rubbery as octopus can be. Service was efficient and friendly, in a truly Italian atmosphere. I'll be back...

Have been coming back to this great italian restaurant for a couple of years now, and it only gets better. Apart from the food - which is truly delicious (more later) - the service is wonderful. The last time we went there was a problem with the booking. They had clearly double booked a table. Annoying, but it happens. But... More

great Italian restaurant, finally a different one that serves very good food. very elegant, the architet did an amazing job. good selection of wine. a bit costly but, honestly, better spend few euros more and experience a good italian meal, rather than spend less and get a lasagna or some average pasta.
