Nice owner operated Italian restaurant

Very good owner operated Italian restaurent. Delicious spaghetti pomodoro con basilico and very good fish. Not cheap but absolutely worth the price.

I Panciuti ('The Big Bellied') stands high over most 'IT' places in a town where everyone believes they know a 'real IT eatery', until they visit ITALY and realize they have been eating surrogate food. The menu includes IT classics and a few BE meat and fish entries. If you ask for pasta, insist you want it al dente. Whatever... More

I consider myself somewhat of a regular, after living around the corner to them for almost 5 years. I feel like most of their patrons are regulars. That being said, me, and countless of others with me, keep going back for the amazing service, warm welcome and nice people. The food is awesome value for money. The specials that are... More

I've never had lasagne made with processed ham rather than beef before.... But it may be a Belgian speciality? Edible as I was very hungry but a real surprise to be served this in an Italian restaurant, don't think I'll be returning.

My favourite Italian restaurant in Brussels. Not very well located (outside city center, close to Brussels south station) but worth taking the time to go. Refined choice of dishes and always good service and suggestions.

I think we would go back to Brussels again just to have a meal here. Recommended by our hotel it was a fantastic find. Lovely local Italian restaurant, nicely decorated, nice relaxed athmosphere and friendly staff. The food was amazing, just wonderful. We had to wait a little time for our food so I knew before it came that it... More

We took the short walk from our hotel to I Panciuti after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The pasta and pizza servings were very generous and the flavours delicious and authentic Italian. Service was very friendly and welcoming and we enjoyed a very relaxed family meal we will remember fondly of our visit to Brussels.
