On a wet night with the hotel kitchen closed, I was directed here. Warm, smiling welcome and the place buzzing with bonhomie and garlic! The waiter advised on the food and wine, both of which were excellent. I avoided the grappa and had a first class limoncello. Then as a goodwill gesture I was offered an interesting herbal digestiv.

We visited this restaurant for my birthday and were almost turned away as they were fully booked. I think the owner felt bad for us as we had walked there on a very cold evening and were very disappointed that we couldn't get a table. I had tried to book ahead but apparently they were not in when I called.... More

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.
