Il Viticolo hits all the right spots in terms of quality, comfort, service and price for a business lunch in Schuman area. The choice is wide but the best option is the daily plate with starter and water/wine which comes to less than 25 euro...per head. Service is prompt, discreet and friendly. No complaints just praiseMore

Went here for Valentine's day. Even though they offered a Valentine's day menu, we opted to eat à la carte. We were happy with our choice. Had one of the best meals in recent times. They offer authentic italian cuisine & the dishes we took...had soo much flavour! It was a wauw experience & I was thrilled to have picked this restaurant to celebrate a special occasion with my partner ❤More

As many of restaurants around the European institutions, Viticolo provides good quality Italian food and at the lunch time is usually very crowded. Reasonable choice of meet, fish and pasta dishes. Daily specials are usually for reasonable price too, but once you go selecting from...the menu, starter and main course without wine with just water will be around EUR100 for two.More

With good help from the waiter, the three of us had a truly excellent diner at Il Viticolo. Clearly aiming at good Italian quality, my colleagues and I enjoyed a light starter plate (for all three together). For main course we all chose the Risotto...with truffle. Although sufficient we decided to head for the Café gourmand which was another excellent choice. Again not too heavy but perfectly balanced with a quality coffee. Having had suych a good meal we didn't hesitate to order the Grappa of the house and again, this deserved a recommendation.More

I arrived in Brussels in January 2018 for a three year posting, and was fortunate to discover Viticolo in the first month I was here, just after they opened for business. From that first experience, this has been, and will continue to be, our favourite...restaurant. Firstly, the service. Giuseppe out front is an exceptional host, making you feel at ease and providing understated but professional service. His recommendations for pairing wines with our dinner choices have not disappointed. Secondly, the food. Giuseppe in the kitchen develops beautiful, fresh italian dishes, with incredible flavours and textures. I have tried everything on the menu (there is a specials menu which changes every week) and will continue to do so - the scampi diavola and the black truffle spaghetti are favourites which you should try. I use this for entertaining friends for dinner, entertaining diplomats for lunch and quite often just because it is such a great experience and we want to make the most of it. i urge you to try Viticolo, for business or pleasure, and introduce yourself to both Giuseppes to enhance the personal experience.More

The products are acceptable but the portions are rather small. I took a tuna tartare and it was just accompanied by 2 small pieces of green salad, 2 slices of vegetable for 20 euros.
