Casual Italian eatery with tasty pasta options. The pasta menu changes every few months (maybe even weeks, I just visit every few months). The pasta dishes are tasty; good-size portion. Burrata with veggies starter is a favourite of mine too. The service is friendly and casual. It does get loud (and bit stuffy on warmer days) though. Reservations are a... More

Wonderful food but pricey for Italian standards. Noone in Italy would pay that much for a plate of pasta with mushrooms (around €17!!).

Was taken here by clients and they served very tasty dishes, yet still delivered big portions. Wine was very good too and good service all round.

This restaurant was truly good for its quality-price. However, the dishes price went from around 10euros max 14 to min 14euros to 16. It used to remind me of an "Osteria" simple, good and affordable. I will not recommend it to all my friends anymore.

Tiny Italian restaurant close by la place du Chatelain in Brussels. I advise you to book in advance as it's not very big. It's an open kitchen so you can observe the chefs. the decoration is modern with bright colours. The staff was very flexible and allowed us to eat, even though all the tables were booked, but we promised... More

Came here on a wednesday night and the place was heaving with people enjoying a drink (aperitivo). Quite a happening place and lots of fun. Menu is small with targeted choices, all of high quality. They have a few mozzarella varieties as starters and fresh pasta options. I had the meat sauce (ragu') pasta which was excellent. Be sure to... More

As an Italian living in Brussels I can confirm the kitchen is very delicious, original Italian style. The choice of meals is limited, but for the very selective person I am, almost all options were tempting at the same level. We had a mouthwatering burrata for starters, then I took a pasta with 'nduja (spicy Calabrese pork sausage meat), aubergines... More

Small, cosy and nice pasta. In my plate "ravioli alla Toscana" there were a lot of rosemary, so not perfect for my taste, but the ravioli per se was delicious. Nice wine and good service. It's important to make a reservation before.

When you enter the restaurant everything smells like Italy. The open kitchen at the entrance confirms that quality has the first place here. You can find simple but traditional Italian pasta and other main dishes that you can't easily find in Brussels. Service is good and attentive. Deeply recommended: book in advance if you are more than two pp.

Very friendly service. Delicious pasta and steak. Tasty wines by the glass. Fun atmosphere. Fun watching the cooks at work. They do take away too.
