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.

I come here very often for business reasons, the service/food is excellent… and ask the boss for wine advise !! The pasta with truffles is simple but a delicious dish 

This restaurant has a nice range of Italian dishes including both meat and fish. The service is very friendly and professional. Very nice and wide wine selection. We had a business dinner a la carte and everyone was happy with the meal. I had scampi as a starter and the duck as a main course. Both very tasty. I recommend... More

First of all I'd like to thank the staff who were extremely patient with the dim English people who struggled to interpret a menu in both French and Italian, their help was invaluable! They managed to squeeze us in as they were very busy, but were attentive and helpful throughout the evening. The food was beautifully presented and tasted amazing.... More
