Nice place and people. We arrived 15 minutes before the kitchen closed and were served very fast. The spaghetti was nice and not expensive. Great experience and hope to go back soon.

It's the best place in the neighborhood to eat pasta. Quick and good. Not to expensive. For 10€ you can eat and drink a soft. Even for take away its a good place. I will come back for sure !

Very popular so often very crowded. Food is good. Not much choice. Average service. Everything has to go fast. Not for a romantic dinner. Go with friends or family.

This shop is amazingly good in spaghetti however service is far from that quality. Soft drinks are without gas (cola etc.) and waiter is not looking at while you are desperately waiting for him to give your order. Price is not that cheap considering pasta.

We are regular customers and every time amazed with the number of people queuing up for simple (!!!) and tasty pasta. Don't forget to add chili oil

If you fancy a spaghetti for lunch then is what you will find here. Portions are big, taste is pretty good. Still, seating is not that great but you get value for money. Be early as the place is always crowded.

A classic spaghetti restaurant just next to Brussel. Classic Brussels pub interior. The spaghetti is good but a bit overrated, generous servings. Wine is expensive and average quality. Be prepared to wait to get a table because there are always a lot of people.
