Close taxi from Novotel

Had a nice business dinner here with three colleagues. Nice seating area and ambience with the murals. My pork rolled in cheese / ham was good. Tartufo for dessert with amaretto was the favorite.

my first visit wasn't that nice as typical for here you need to have a reservation although lots of tables might be empty. Also to be mentioned on that first visit is that the service staff wasn't that friendly. BUT….after having several visits now in this place I made contact with the staff and now we do like this place... More

This restaurant has it all: good food, reasonable prices (max 20-30 per meal), a nice interior, friendly waiters who take your jacket and a beautiful plates. A nice place for a date, or for seeing an old friend!

Ate here a few times (which was always good) but it wouldn't hurt to have a more inventive & changing menu. I know that when I go back in a couple of months the menu will still be the same. Too bad! The approach of the waiters and maître is also not appreciated by everyone (can be very blunt).

I have had dinner here twice. The first time I already noticed the waiters a bit arrogant and quickly annoyed if you asked anything. The second time we were a group of 4 colleagues and for expenses claim reasons we needed to all pay a fourth of the bill. The waiter told us we needed to talk to the manager... More

I had an excellent codfish dish and my colleague had veal which I tried and it was also excellent. Although our server was stretched a bit thin due to the holiday season causing the serving staff to be a minimum, he was very attentive and charming. Excellent suggestions on food and wine. We enjoyed a very nice meal.

Excellent quality of food, but not cheap. We went on a Tuesday evening, and although the restaurant was not even half full, we had to wait a long time for our desserts to arrive. Waiter was not overly friendly and didn't (or didn't want to) speak Dutch. The owner on the other hand was extremely nice and friendly.

The place is always crowded, especially during the week - so don't go there if you are looking for a romantic, private dinner... However, if it is that crowded, it is for a reason - the staff is very friendly, and helpful and the food is just delicious ! La Serenata is one of the few (if not the only)... More

Very nice Italian restaurant. Already for years well-known in the suburban Zaventem/Diegem area, for good and stable quality and good service, nice atmosphere. Very reasonable prices for a good choice of very tasty Italian food Go there for a family lunch but also for a dinner in the evening with friends - this resto is a good choice
