Excellent little Italian joint

Crowdy and busy. Food is good, simple Italian food. Fresh and tasty. The only issue is to manage to get a table.. and do not go there if you want free space around you and privacy..

Thursday means busy night around this area of town. But the staff manages their customers with a smile and deadly routines. Food is good, but you come here to eat out with friends, not for someone on the lookout for new wowing dishes.

If you manage to get a table here, then you are in luck because this is an excellent restaurant with great dishes. You will not be disappointed. The main downside is that people from around Place Luxembourg know this place too well and frequent it during lunch. If you can go during the evening service it will be easier to... More

Fresh, good proportions, complimentary aperitifs, great flavor sand cozy atmosphere. Wait staff very kind and pleasant. Biggest pepper shaker I have ever seen. Wish they were open more often and although we had no reservation, they squeezed us in. Well priced and good value.

Found this place by coincidence and had a lunch here with my family on a Friday. I had a wonderful risotto and my wife a combination of pastas including an extraordinary 4 cheese pasta with truffle. For my daughter they brought a fresh and delicious pasta bolognese. The quality of food restaurants serve for small children is for me a... More

I had a lunch there. It was excellent but the place is quite crowded and a bit noisy. Too much success I guess.

I've been there with colleagues at lunch time. It's a tiny place but pasta is delicious. I can agree with colleagues that suggested this place: it's definitely among the best pasta places in Belgium.

Loved it, went there for my husband's birthday and we were both so pleasantly surprised, we've been trying to go back many times but the restaurant is hardly ever open. Quaint and small, but the food is great and also the service. Would highly recommend if you're looking for a place on Wednesday or Friday evening.

... then in months to come it would still be read and not lost amongst the 100s of other great reviews. But as that isn't fair ... This IS the best restaurant in Brussels (and my favourite). The food, wine and value-for-money are excellent and the staff are friendly and competent. It's always full and noisy for a reason. It's... More

Great Italian food. Therefore, you could hardly find places there. if you are lucky, you can have lunch (no reservations accepted), but for dinner make sure you book in advance. you will not regret it!
