Pleasant but average.

Sunday night in Leuven. Friendly service, ambience good. We both had the asparagus starter which was spoilt by a lake of butter and un-necessary added veg. Other half had lamb fillets as main. I had salmon with a lake of holandaise sauce - both too salty. Wine was quaffable and reasonably priced... read more

I have been about 4-5 times to Acquasanta and have always been pleased with everything. I dont go in with huge expectations but i have also always been with a "social deal" voucher for a 3 course meal. The food was great and i also got a bottle of champagne for my birthday. The service has always been great and... More

Impressive modern restaurant with a very inviting menu too. Also the food doesn't disappoint and is worthy of the price. Worth a mention is the impressive beer list with a real wide choice of excellent Belgian beers. The restaurant does fall down on service. Ordering a beer at 22:30 we were told too directly that they will close soon. Eventually... More

We had lunch here-- a pizza and a plate of venison came to more than 50 euros! The food was quite delectable, but that sort of price range for lunch was a bit much. Service was quite good. Everything was well cooked and flavorful. Definitely recommended!

New owners and were pleasantly surprised. After walking up and down the muntstraat and the usual tourist traps we opted for this renewed establishment. The interior is nice and modern and clean and the staff were attentive. I opted for a rack of lamb and all that comes with it and it was very well cooked with a nice rosemary... More

Nice enough interior, BUT Pizza bottom hard as plywood with too much tomato sauce and definitely too much anchovy. And unfortunately not much of anything else. Perhaps the pasta and other dishes are nice, but I am not willing to try.

We went in this restaurant with 6 people all asking a different dish and although it took a while they were all served at the same time. Nevertheless I didn't got that extra to give it a 4 star. My special complements for the lady of the house who was very friendly. A little bit of dressing on the salad... More

We went with some close colleagues out for dinner at Acquasanta. I had a minestrone soup but it looked more like a light vegetable soup (soup from frozen vegetables). The taste was OK but that was it. Than I had Ossobucco with pasta. The sauce was OK not super. Lots of vegetables and tomato sauce. As dessert I had a... More

I had dinner here on a Friday evening, nice weather so everybody was eating outside at Muntstraat. This restaurant still had a table outside so we went there. First remark: my wine glass was only half! filled compared to the one of my friend... 2nd: the olives that came with the drinks were so obvious from a bowl (still wet):... More

My visit to Acquasanta was very pleasant. The food was satisfying and the food came quite fast. There weren't a lot of people there at the time, but that was most likely due to the fact that we went there pretty early. The staff was also very nice.
