Very good and authetic Italian food. Wide variety of choices of starters as well as mains and desserts. The knowledgeable staff can provide good advise and made us feel at home. A minor negative point is that they don't accept foreign debit cards.

Hidden just a few meters away from bustling Place Jourdan, this restaurant offers a very good and reasonably priced basic menu, supplemented by a slightly more sophisticated menu of special dishes for the day.It specializes in southern Italian dishes from Calabria, which - if you like very spicy food - are quite excellent. The ambiance is nice, compared to the... More

Nice staff. Pasta à little overcooked for 2/5 of the plates. On Sunday restaurants are mostly not opened. And i would still suggest it.

Had a nice meal with friends and family, the waiter was very nice, food was good, price level was reasonable. House wine was charged for only the amount you drink. Good value, will go again!

Went there with some friends for dinner. The service is good and the decoration is nice. i ordered pasta with shrimps and asparagus, the asparagus were totally overcooked, i don't know if they were fresh. i'm not really convinced by this place. But as we say, tastes and colours are not always the same.

I usually head to Patty Pates in Ixelles whenever I long for good and fresh Italian pasta. But they have recently changed their menu and made it even more expensive than before. This is when I came across Eccetera at Place Jourdan. I live closeby and I have never seen the place deserted nor did I even venture inside to... More

Well now, this restaurant, in the true spirit of italy, uses nothing but fresh and tasty products to offer you excellent food. Don't expect a paper menu, there isn't one! It is on the wall, and you should always ask the chef what he recommends as he is rather creative! Wine is good, service is a little bit on the... More

Went here twice for Sunday lunch and Monday dinner. Quality food at reasonable prices in an overpriced part of the city. Gorgeous pastas, risotto, panna cotta, tiramisu. Very friendly staff. The only oddity is that the menu is printed on the wall and a chalk board and only in Italian. You have to get up and stand over other diners... More

We went there for a dinner on a Friday evening - was crowded and we had almost to shout in order to hear each other. The food was good - portions are amazingly big. If you take starters and a dish, you won't be really able to go for a dessert. I had a big portion of lasagne, that looked... More

I love this place. A reasonably-priced, good-honest-portion restaurant; where water doesn't cost €9/bottle and where a plate of pasta + glass of wine + dessert doesn't force you to re-mortgage your house; where waiters are friendly, flexible and efficient, and where you walk out thinking: "until next time". I was introduced to the place a couple of months ago, and... More
