If this were a 1 star review ...

... 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... read 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!

They take the Italian food at its best - the smells, the tastes, all caressing the senses, you feel like nowhere else, but the Mediterranean:-) If you close your eyes and try not to hear the noise of the full restaurant, you might just as well picture yourself in the garden of an Italian grandma:-) Too bad it is so...

We loved this small, cosy restaurant in its perfect location. We were charmed by the Italian greetings, atmosphere and menu. The waiters were very welcoming and attentive. They offered us complimentary wine on arrival followed quickly by green olives, bread and olive oil. We then ordered the Aubergine Lasagne and the Clam Linguine. The presentation, portion sizes and taste were... More

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
