We just turned up on a Friday night and they squeezed us in, we were so glad they did. Most of the menu is pasta, but there is such a variety. Clearly this is a family run restaurant and the atmosphere is great, prices were reasonable too. The other plus for us was that it was across the road from... More

This is a family run restaurant near the EU commission offices. It's mostly a lunch time business but opens for a couple of evenings - we were there on a Friday night and the place was very busy so we were lucky we had a reservation. Nice ambience, service was good and food choice excellent. Tagliatelle with liver was very... More

It is a typical italian restaurant for foreigners, the cuisine is not bad, but nothing special, It is not really a refined one, I would say maybe a "heavy" cuisine, I felt bloated after the lunch.

We ordered a sharing platter of meats, cheeses and vegetables for starters which was amazing. We ordered squid for main course and while we waited was given a free drink... More

I was positively surprised with the friendly service and delicious food. We arrive without reservation but even like this they suggested the table at the entrance, where we felt comfortable. An aperitif drink was served with a variety of some small pieces of pizza and a basket of several kinds of bread. The starter, antipasto misto, was delicious with very... More

It's a nice, reasonably priced restaurant with a limited menu mainly consisting of pasta dishes. The antipasti and pasta are homemade and all ingredients are very fresh. The house wine is quiet good (the red is a blend of merlot and sangiovese from Veneto). At lunchtime they don't take reservations for groups smaller than 6 people. The décor is very... More

Il Pasticcio - cash and credit accepted A great, small Italian restaurant in central Brussels. Reservations are a must, as there are not very many tables. Once you are seated, the server brings a complementary glass of prosecco and a basket with a variety of tasty bread treats. Once you have ordered, an amuse bouche arrives - ours was small... More
