I love Italian food and i can even say it's my favorite all times. This restaurant captures everything italian needless to say the flavors of the food are totally worth a try. It's not the cheapest restaurant but i can say that pasta served here is totally worth all the money.

This strikes me as an extremely authentic Italian restaurant in Brussels. It was selected by an Italian associate who lives there and her choice certainly satisfied me. A fairly concise menu with several specials, everything seemed to be first class quality. The service was friendly and knowledgeable and I'm glad that we took the waiter's advice for both food and...

It is so refreshing to come to a REAL Italian restaurant in brussels, not to the fac-simile that many of them sadly are. The menu is short, with many interesting choices but we all went for the suggestions of the day. I had the orecchiette with botarga and chickpeas and they were really good. The fish was also amazing. I... More

We love it when the other half suggests going out for a Pizza pasta because we always end up here! Food & staff are brilliant, even takeaways are always good. Recommended.

I love traditional Italian food; yet Dolce Amaro is not your traditional Italian restaurant. Definitely, Italian food for foodies. Still a simple person like me enjoyed the food and service. The waiters were great, and they give us a free appetizer. We order wine off the menu, so ask if you do not see your favorite on the wine list.... More

One of the best Italian restaurants I ever had the pleasure of experiencing, not in Italy but located in Brussels... A must for any aficionado of Italian cuisine. Tagliatelle with truffels and Parmesan, Fiorentine manzo and dolces accompanied by great wines... Wow.

Off the beaten path, looks pretty regular from the outside and nice extraordinary inside but...everything else is an absolute positive surprise. Very well assorted menu with classic Italian dishes interestingly revisited, courteous service and excellent quality. Will go back.

It's a bit off the beaten path, but it's worth it. We got there fairly early, 18:30, and got a parking space right out front. We ate on the patio out back, which was a lovely setting. I felt like I was eating at a good friend's home. Many of the staff are Italian and it is great fun to... More

They have a very nice garden. That's about the best thing that can be said for this restaurant. The service is sloppy. The food is, well, okay; but at this price level you would expect better. There are many restaurants in Brussel that beat this one hands down. Try le chou de Bruxelles, different cuisine, obviously, but delicious.
