Very good Italian

It was eleven years since I last ate at this restaurant. The same staff are there. The food was great and the choice was varied. The steaks are fantastic. The pasta choice is amazing and the cooking is excellent. The wine choice is also great. Ambience is perfect. Parking is easy. The first meal... read more

Serenata is a well known, frequently visited and thus bussy restaurant. Good food, a lot of choices, and friendly personnel. Better to visit for a lunch during the week. Usually a good 'plate of the day' with fish.

As a regular visitor to Brussels, i have eaten here several times and i have to say that to me its nothing special. As its close to the Airport where i tend to stay, its usually one of the local eateries that my company uses. When i was told that we would be dining there with some clients last week,... More

We ate at this restaurant on Valentines Day and had a lovely meal, with our only complaint being the fact that the service was a little slow. However, I have also previously eaten here at lunchtime when the service was extremely speedy, so I'm sure it was just extra demand due to the special occasion. The menu is excellent and... More

Was my first visit to La Serenata. Was there for a business lunch and reception was heartly and warm. I ordered a nice peace of meat which was very tender. Price was ok. Nice play to go in Zaventem.

I've come here with a group of work colleagues - 14 in total and we were seated on the first floor. Had the impression that all groups are seated on the first floor and individual diners/smaller groups are all on the ground floor. Not sure if it's just down to the space but I think it's a good idea. Service... More

Very good food, friendly and informal staff who are always in for a joke. The owner is very flexible in accommodating his clients and the general atmosphere is fantastic, it feels like you've stepped in a time machine, back to the '20s-30s-40s'-ish. Absolutely love it.

I took a group of my colleagues here for a team dinner. I have been to this restaurant in the past. The food was ok, but on reflection the reason I rated the Restaurant as average were the following 1. The waiter questioned what I was ordering and came across with a very condescending attitude. This really annoyed me. I... More
