“Un italiano vero!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

We came here with a group of friends and had a wonderful dinner. The antipasti were gorgeous and abundant. The pesce alla griglia was a fantastic main dish. The place doesn't offer that many tables and is an Italian delicatessen-shop during the day. The owner and his son are fantastic hosts. Warmly recommended.

“Great fresh Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

This is genuinely a great place to eat if you don't mind sitting in a delicatessen shop
There are only a limited number of tables so booking is recommended
I understand they are looking to remodel to increase capacity as clearly this place is becoming increasingly popular
Families are welcome and the service is friendly
Foodwise : pasta is awesome
Also house Red is a very acceptable Chianti
They of course also to take away
Buon apetito !

“Excellent restaurant, great authentic Italian cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

This delicatessen shop is also a restaurant; the cookery is based on the ingredients that are also for sale in the shop. The place was recently refurbished, adding some more restaurant tables. Great Italian cooking, southern Italian style, at a gastronomical level that surpasses by far what you find in a typical standard-Italian carpaccio-pizza-spaghetti-vitello restaurant. The menu is frequently changed, reflecting the season of the year. Very fine cooking, with a passion for the combination of finest quality ingredients in surprising but very authentic taste. Decent wine list offering the right italian wine for every dish. This is the place to be if you are in the neighbourhood and looking for a fine italian meal with a plus. Even with the recent addition of some more tables, the restaurant frequently fills up to full capacity. Reserving your table is recommended.

“Great trattoria-style Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Excellent place for real Italian food. Used to be a shop only, but some tables were added to it later for lunch and in the weekends also dinner. The owners & staff are all Italian, running their shop & restaurant with passion. Also good for take-away.

“Superb, the best in Tervuren by a wide margin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

This is a great little spot, open for lunch 6 days a week, (closed Monday) and open for dinner Friday and Saturday, when it is a good idea to book! Everything is freshly prepared, and you will be welcomed and remembered on your second visit. Been there many times, am a local, and can literally not find any criticism - tables used to be 'cosy' but they've just upgraded. The wine list is excellent and prices moderate - for what you get, this is value for money.
