“Very good Italian restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

We ordered some meat and fish dishes and all of them were very good. They also serve very good Belgian beer. The restaurant is very close to the airport and if you have the time I really recommend it!

Very welcoming staff and good food. There is almost too much choice though!

“Very good Italian in the outskirts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

Drowned in average Italian food choice in Brussels, this one stands out for good food and big portions.

“Never again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

This is not a serious business. You place your order (by fax) and when they come to deliver, they always charge you more. They say the prices in the website are not up-to-date. And this already happen 2 times (before today, the last order was in June.. so more then time to update the webpage, no?!) Anyway, we order take-a-way once in a while here in the company and we will definitely not order here again. This time we placed an order of 102,5€ and they charged 116,5€ - that's quite an increase!

The pizzas are ok, but not great. They do not cut the pizzas and do not mention the name in the box. We ordered 12 pizzas and need to be guessing what were the ingredients. Also the pizzas were a bit coldish..

NEVER AGAIN! Plenty of nicer and serious restaurants to order from.

“Good food, slow service, a but expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

We spent a pleasent evening. The beer was very good. The food also, I took a very nice fish as main course and it was delicious. All startes which for some reason they call "Primi" in the menu are expensive around €14-€18.
The service was slow but the waiter originally from Italy was nice and friendly. Overall good but with some room for improvement.
The restaurant itself is nicely decorated and pleasent. Limited parking but it is not in a very busy area.
