Quality pasta

Pasta was beyond expectations, starters and mains were all tasteful and nicely prepared. Design fit the Italian cuisine, service was rather quick. Recommended if one is around the Parliament.

A friend took me here for lunch today and, although I lived in Brussels for years, this gem had eluded me. The pasta is some of the best I have ever had. The dishes are down-to-earth, authentic Italian cooking - super selection of pastas, and the tri di pasta (changes daily) is a super way to taste 3 different specials.... More

If you're craving for pasta (real Italian pasta) - then this is your place. Here I've eaten some of the best pastas in my life. They do not offer pizzas but pastas and antipastas are great. The wine is also very good. They do have a lot of different pasta kinds, some of them freshly made. They also have lunch... More

Great food, good prices and an atmosphere like you'd live in a trattoria in Italy. Noisy, busy, nice Italian touches (start with prosecco and olive oil, digestif on the house) and dishes hard to choose form.

We stepped into the restaurant without a reservation, but in the end it worked out anyway. We were generously greeted and were given excellent food. Terrific place for families.

One of the best Italian restaurants I've been to. Went here for lunch and I tried like 5-6 types of dishes. Some good, some excellent. Pasta with mushroom was very good. Quatro formaggi one...good:)

If you look for great antipasto you just found THE place in Brussels. The other dishes, the atmosphere, the service are all great... But please try the antipasto.

Mama is in the kitchen and the rest of the family tend to the tables. Excellent restaurant with lovely home-made food and a great wine list. Be sure to book - if not, expect to have to wait in line for a while. Quite understandably a very popular place!
