first lunch

Was staying opposite this small local on my visit. Friendly atmosphere of the tourist track . Excellent Italian carpaccio first course , followed by a pasta dish with tomato and basil. A simple place but with good typical food.

Lovely little find just down the road from my hotel "hotel pantone" food is delicious, I had the pizza which was fantastic, and very much on par with pizza in Rome. Waitresses were lovely and helpful and they will even change the menu to make something you like. Highly recommended.

This was my second time once before for dinner I had good blank ink pasta and my friend had good asparagus Parmesan pasta. Went back for lunch and tried the famed linguini vongole. Not too impressed, it was way too salty. My husband had another type of pasta that he said was really salty too, and he loves salty food!... More

It might be crowded, sometimes noisy and slow, but food is always excellent in this place. I have kept on returning for the last 15 years and will go on for many years to come. This time I had the capo collo as a starter and vitello in Marsala wine as a main dish, which both were great. We asked... More

We wanted a light dinner and we got nice carpaccios, asparagus with prosciutto and zuchini salad... All fresh and simply but exquisitely done. Price is not cheap, but for the other reviewers complain, nothing in Brussels is. Will come back. The waitress was very nice! They treated us nicely and made room for a table- we were lucky to get...

After having read the rave reviews on TA, and often seen that the restaurant is crowded when passing by, we were looking forward to trying it out. As other reviews have mentioned, the service is very slow and the waitress who served us seemed very miserable. The tables are much too close together and it is a struggle to get... More

I've been going here since it opened around 20 years ago, and I'm still amazed at the food. Pepe is also a great host, and hasn't lost his golden touch with customers! Service is getting a bit inconsistent, though, and unless you like to linger over your evening out, you'll need to be proactive - success comes at a price!... More

Very good mains but let down by service. Seemed to wait forever to be offered desserts so in the end the bill was requested. Further delay so had to go to bar to get it. Tables are extremely close together. Thought about reducing stars further but food didn't deserve it.

This restaurant is situated on its own in a side street, frequented by local people (Always a good sign). We enjoyed the good food and the cosy atmosphere . Staff very charming. We would go back if in Brussels again .

Always packed, you should book in advance during the weekend. It's the hip place of the neighbourhood and the patrons and fancy and a la page. Service is OK: friendly and competent, but far too slow. It's OK though, unless you are in a hurry, as the place is nice and one can spend time watching people pass by. The... More
