Having looked at many Italian restaurants menus and tripadvisor reviews we chose this Italian as it was opposite our hotel and very close the main city centre. The menu looked appealing and on arrival we thought we may have made the wrong choice. The service was less than impressive, as we found the staff very unapproachable. Once we ordered our... More

Superb food (we both had the Lasagne) which was exactly what we needed after a busy day wandering around Bruges. Restaurant is a bit dated and the waiter was down right miserable and unapproachable. The restaurant wasn't even busy, so no excuse really. BUT the food made up for it and it was very reasonably priced.

A great place to find some of the best Italian food I have had outside of Italy. Staff are excellent, and the atmosphere is relaxed. The pizza and pasta selection is superb and all the dishes we had finished off with happy faces and empty plates. A good night out was had.

This is a great, authentic Italian restaurant which is located in the centre of Brugges. It's been established 32 years and was extremely reasonably priced amongst the high prices of most other restaurants. Although dated inside it added to the charm of the place. We had a great seat on the first night right in the window watching the world... More

We went here for a cheeky lunch, as I am a massive pizza fan. When you first go I they say no room, they do this everywhere, we figured you have to then say a time frame not just accept that, this is A Bruge thing. I had a pizza with pepperoni and garlic and omg it was soooo tasty.... More

We were hungry and looking for places that were still open and serving food. We decided to have a pizza. We went in and asked whether we could take away and they said yes so we ordered for four cheese pizza. After a little wait we got the pizza and went to sit next to the water down the road... More

Decided to try this restaurant on our 2nd night in Bruges. We were taken to our tables and after about 15 mins we still had not ordered drinks so had to go and ask someone. When ordering the food my husband asked for Carbonara with penne pasta rather than spaghetti as he finds it easier to eat!! It seemed to... More

A few metres from the main square, this family run Italian served food that was OK. The Calzone was huge but was the only thing on the plate and the Lasagne was like an island in sauce. They both tasted reasonable but a few bits of salad would have been nice. We had a window seat and were horrified by... More

Been there a LONG time ago, when the boy needed a nanny/babysitter ... Returned after so many years.. still the same. Still the same "joy de vivre" from the lady of the house, still the same lovely food on your plate. On Bruges most beautiful day (May 29, 2014) we went having lunch. My son ate a pizza, he rated...
