We had dinner at the Osteria Romana in July but it was below our expectations. Italian food can be much better. First courses are very fatty, the choice is poor and the bill was too high for what we ate.

You could be eating in a fine restaurant in Rome, with no concessions. Discreet, modern decor, excellent service, with some sensational dishes, both in taste and in presentation, which can be spectacular. Along with this level of quality comes a bill to match - but you get what you are paying for, so no regrets. A good choice for a... More

We had a lovely evening at Osteria Romana, service is very pleasant, fast without giving the impression of wanting the table back, atmosphere is intimate but fun, decor absolutely stunning. We had antipasti and pasta dishes. All were delicious, including the amuse bouche offered by the house and the dessert. The bill did not come cheap, 20 euro for a... More

After a late evening in office I decided to cross the street and have some pasta in this little Italian restaurant, this evening at 9pm. The friendly waitress proposed me some typical Roman dish. As for the wine, I asked a good glass of red wine. It took them more than half an hour to bring me the pasta! (With... More

We started our visit with very little reviews and information,so it would be a surprise anyway. We were pleasantly surprised with atmosphere, which was very cosy and laid back, still being chic. There was absolutely nothing to complain about the service, the staff was well trained. The quality was very good. You would say the prizes are high for the... More

I went there with my husband one month ago.People in the room are very kind but the service was extremely slow. The restaurant is well decorated even though it is not a typical osteria. the quality of the food is ok, but it is overpriced. Nowadays, even in Brussels you can find good guanciale and easily reproduce a carbonara at... More

My boyfriend and I tried Osteria Romana last night - we were so pleasantly surprised to find this little gem of a restaurant! The food is refined and absolutely delicious. You won't find Italian like this anywhere else in Brussels (its a little slice of Rome). The staff were so friendly and Chef Philippe came out of the kitchen several... More

As promised we got there again. I admit: I love the place. Second half of March is typical artichokes' season in Roma where city-markets sell them by the dozens, in bunchs like flowers, so we visited the place and... here they are: artichokes "alla romana " (roman style), i.e. slow cooked with water, oil, salt, garlic and a bit of...

Eccellent service and very relaxing atmosfere in this small and cosy restaurant. The quality and freshness of food is absolutely very high. The dishes are all the tipical ones from Roman kitchen but prepared in a more innovative way and with attention to the details. The owners are very kind and attentive to satisfy clients' needs. We enjoied a lot... More
