The fun in this restaurant is that it can't be compared with other pizzeria's, it's an authentic pizzeria napoletana. I'm not going in to details but I'm just saying.. If you set up an "Oslo" line-up with pizza's this one's gonna jump right out. If you care for a refined wood burning oven pizza, this is the place you go.... More

@ a few meters from the former Winterslag stadium, where in 1982 the great Arsenal was beated 1-0 there is this excellent pizzeria. Indeed a different taste than normal pizza. It's a must-try. We've been there ten times, and never disappointed by anything. The proverbio's on the wall are funny. And indeed: please accept debet/credit cards!

We are in love with Il Proverbio. Simple but honest ingredients, fresh food and ... the wine: delicious. Great pizza's & lovely antipasti. I like the interior - nice and clean. But I understand the complaint about the acoustic and the noise (but, it is an Italian restaurant - so it is part of the atmosphere) A tip for Il... More

Maybe I expected too much of this pizzeria? We had dinner at Il Proverbio on a rainy evening. It was fully booked and extremely noisy. I even didn't have the chance to take of my coat and the waitress came to take our order (drinks) which felt very stressy. For a pizza, the prices were too high for my liking.... More

First, this pizzeria is located in a very nice area of the city. The Noordlaan and its surroundings have an interesting history and for former inhabitants of Genk it is a very nostalgic experience to drive around this part of the city. Second, the building itself is also quite beautiful. So after all the positive reviews and recommendations by friends,... More

Good food, fresh ingredients, friendly service, the best pizza's of Genk. But it is noisy especially when you are going with a group, there is a bad acoustic.

Even after eating out at Il Proverbio for many times, I'm still hooked. I've been there with friends, family, with my girlfriend and to be honest, I've had a great time at each occasion. The reception and communication was kind & clear. They have 2 shifts, as many other well respected restaurants do; one at 18h00 & one at 20h00.... More

Il Proverbio's pay off is: 'Autentica Pizzeria Napoletana' and this directly sets the standard for the pizza's made here. Pizza's are baked in a traditional Italian wood-oven at a temperature of 400 degrees. This, combined with the fresh ingredients and first class dough, results in a crispy pizza with fresh topping. The standards at Il Proverbio are set by the... More

We went for dinner last weekend to Il Proverbio. We read some exciting articles about this pizzeria (unique oven and passion of the staff). We were not dissappointed by the taste of these pizza's. Even our kids (used to pizza hawaii's) loved these innovative tastes with class ingredients. Why an average in the end. We first had outdoor seating which... More

Unfortunately, Genk isn't quite a town one visits often. But to be honest; driving half an hour for the pizza is woth it. The chef has followed every imaginable course in pizzamaking, and had his oven and supplies brought over from Napels. What makes the pizza so incedibly good? All the ingredients are top notch. All is biological, real moist... More
