Fantastic food, brilliant wine and an ambiance restaurants with Michelin stars would be proud of. Simple menu, done very well with wines to match. They obviously love their food & wine and want customers to enjoy the experience , but not require a remortgage to do it.

Pasta was very well done and delicious. Our waiter was very sweet. Had to come back as there were no tables but managed to get a table several hours later. Not much of a decor but then again, the food and wine were so good I spent very little time looking around.

This restaurant is one of my favorite restaurants in Brussels. They know well how pasta should be... al dente which many restaurants in Brussels don't know. good ambiance, good service, very reasonable.

La Piola is a very nice (and very small) Italian restaurant that serves excellent food. Since the restaurant has only a few tables, they can't afford to have a long menu. Instead they change it very often (weekly I believe) - don't forget to check the menu outside before getting in. My review only applies to the "La Piola Pesce"... More

This is my type of restaurant - relaxed, basic wooden tables, nice atmosphere, great food. The pasta (I had the arrabiata) is some of the best I have eaten in Brussels (where much of the Italian food is truly awful). Well cooked pasta, just the right amount of well flavoured sauce. And topping it off is the price - extremely... More

You might think I go to La Piola so often because it's 2 blocks from my apartment, but of all the restaurants in the area it's my favorite by far. It's small, with great ambiance, they serve fresh, home-made pasta, and the service is very good. Part of what I like and which some may not, is the limited menu.... More

Nice Italian wines (if you like Italian wine, of course) and great atmosphere. Also serve little food (pasta). Recommendable!

They cook the food right in front of you, you can even check what other things the cook is cooking and pick whatever appeals you more. A casual restaurant. Tiramisu was not specially good, and found it a bit small though.
