“Book ahead, since this is a great place for both pasta and pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

It is not easy to get in to this restaurant without timely booking, because it is well visited by locals and business people. Fortunately, you can always come for a take-away pizza!
Parking is in a (rather busy) street, so can be a bit of a challenge.
Kids are welcome, as in most Italian restaurants.
The restaurant has two parts (even doors): pizza and the rest (where you can also have a pizza). We sat in the main restaurant, and were welcomed by the friendly owner.
Both pastas we tried were very good: a home made large ravioli with spinach and cheese topped by a heavely nut sauce (highy recommended), and the very small tortellini with ham and cream. Pasta prices were not cheap (16 euro on average), but worth it. The pizza was (of course!) very nice and tasty, for those who like thin crust.
We had an excellent wine from Sicily, recommended by the owner.
I will definitely come back here again.

“worth to pay visit ! Excellent 360°”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Discovered after been advised by a coleague, Lino's restaurant becomes for me an harbour in the tempest when my desire is enjoying original CUCINA ITALIANA and i cannot catch a plane to Italyor Sicily. Pasta fresca, filetto, pizza, wines, etc., even the courtesy of the personnel is OVER THE TOP! my favourite dish? no doubt about it: PIZZA BRESAOLA VALTELLINA GORGONZOLA ROSMARINO.
thanks to all Lino's team, see you soon.
salutiamo don Lino

“Best Pizza in Brussels or Belgium”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

They have learned the art of pizza making: crispy soft dough with lots of tasty topping combinations. Perfectly baked to precision even when the restaurant is full with a variety of fresh in season toppings from simple cheese topping to mouth watering mixtures - full of distinguished flavours.

“disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2011

Many people for lunch, I don't understand why. Main course disappointing, dessert not worth looking at.
