Good choice in the center

We discover it via tripadvisor and It was a good choice. Meat was ok and well served. The owner very gentle.

It's an almost hidden Italian restaurant, just in the city center. The portions are generous and the price is right. We'd tried pizza, pasta and ossobuco and everything was good. Staff was friendly, the restaurant is a bit old but well maintained.

What a find...a true taste of Italy in Brussels. ..food was perfectly cooked with all the smells and tastes that you would expect if you where visiting the country. ..the hospitality to ourselves as invaders to there city was second to none. ..takes a little finding in the back streets from the main square but believe me..well worth a visit...

Wandering around the side streets of Brussels we came upon this lovely restaurant. Decor is nothing special but the service and food was fantastic. Our pasta dishes were excellent and a delightfully tangy lemon sorbet to follow made a meal we really enjoyed. With 2 drinks included the bill was €42, a bargain we felt. Don't hesitate to visit, you... More

Be prepared for paper table cloths - that's the unpretentious part. But the menu offers a very good choice, and we decided for a plate of excellent San Daniele ham to share as a starter. Main courses were: escalope of veal with Gorgonzola, duck breast, pizza quatro stagione, pasta with broccoli. 2 beers, 1 bottle of very nice Merlot. 3... More

Spolit for choice with places to eat all real busy, stumbled on this quite quiet and offering a very good deal on a simple steak dinner. Food was good, generous portions though I would have preferred the place to be busier. Was excellent value and I would potentially eat their again.

Found this on our first night while very hungry and tired. The interior of the restaurant is best described as 1980s Cinese takeaway. Plastic plants adorn tiled ledges and then paper tablecloths certainly don't exude class. Food was remarkably average: steak was well cooked but dry. Pizza was bland and two of the listed ingredients were invisible. No matter how... More

I would not normally eat Italian in Brussels but I was with some colleagues and one of them mentioned that this one was quiet. (not nnormally a good sign). On entering half the restaurant was full of students which gave the place a bit of atmosphere. The menu did not look much at face value but I tried the Rabbit... More
