Delicious Italian food, warm and friendly atmosphere, and gracious hosts! I could tell it has a local following, which is always a good sign when traveling. We went there a couple of times and really enjoyed it! Located in Saint-Gilles.

Small Italian restaurant in the Saint Gerry neighborhood. They have a very nice big terrasse so it’s nice for the summer.
Food was good but unfortunately They didn’t have what we want it anymore. I had the bruschetta as a starter it was very nice they were three huge ones; and as a main dish I had the pasta al vongole which was delicious.
All this with a margarita, wich was different than the usual ones and not spicy enough for me.
Service was very friendly.

I was a very nice experience, for its warm hospitality and authentic Italian flavours, with interesting and fresh proposals bringing the touch of Puglia. Very good service and friendly staff. Prices are in line with the average in Brussels. Highly recommended.

Well finally you can get a decent cocktail in Brussels, this place must be visited, they are very professional in what they do , they also do a nice espresso and sell also very good wine by glass.
The place itself is not too big but is very cozy, people working there tend top be very kind, kind and professional.
A good day to visit is Tuesday when they do an Italian aperitif , so you pay for your drink and get to eat a very nice buffet included in the price of the drink.
In case you are in the area of St Gilles is a place worth to be visited .

A brilliant bar with wide selection of drinks and cocktails as well as food. Sustained centrally in the Saint Gilles district, this is a totally fabulous Italian bar run, apparently, by an all Italian team a d frequented, definitely by the Italian expat community.

The negronis were impeccable and there's a wide of tastes. The place is small, crowded, loud. Trendy crowd. I enjoyed myself a lot. Will go back.

I went there a few times, the location is great (big terrace which is in the sun in the evening) and the apero is really the italian one! You can drink good aperol spritz (on Tuesday) and for the same price you can enjoy the buffet (pasta, pizza, salad...). If you want to experience a bit of Italy in Brussels, Ci Piace is highly recommended!!!

Came here on a Friday night and the place had a fabulous buzz to it. The staff were lovely and clearly expert mixologists - a negroni at CiPiaCe is so much more than mixing three ingredients together. You also got free taralli throughout, which is always appreciated. Also a great terrace with blankets! Will be returning next time I'm in Brussels.

Whether meeting up with friends or going on a date, this is the perfect spot. Casual, good food, nice wines and amazing cocktails. Nothing here it ordinary or mediocre. From the service to the drinks to the unique take on Italian food, this is a place that you not only want to be but want to come back to time and time again.

Brunched there back in late September but the weather was so wonderful it might as well have been summer...enjoyed a laid back afternoon sitting there, sipping on coffee and orange juice and sampling their excellent choice of italian dishes and desserts, charcuterie, and cheeses. No better place to be on a Sunday morning/afternoon - but they also do fantastic apperos, and snacks to have with.
