We went to Acquqsanta because our favorite Italian restaurant was closed. We were very pleased with the meal: my companions had three different veal dishes;I had a "pizza Napoli" with anchovies and capers. The pizza was really Italian-style,with a thin crust and really good. The veal-eaters thought the food good. Service was prompt and attentive. The lady who took our... More

Went with my husband for Saturday lunch. The place is just downtown Leuven. The interior is pleasant enough. The service was friendly & very quick (the restaurant was almost empty though). Like other reviewers said they bring 2 pieces of bruschetta with tomatoes & herbs & also offer an aperitif at the end which is nice. However, the food is... More

This was one of my favorite restaurants in Leuven for years, then....not so much. Now the previous owner is back and the place is great once again! Our group included people from 4 countries and each person was delighted by their food. Standout choices were the wild hare, lamb chops, seawolf, and the veal masala. All with delicious veggies, and... More

In summer you can eat outside in the bustling Muntstraat and enjoy a Mediterranean atmosphere. The food is very good and the waiters pick up the slightest hint you may need something. Service is impeccable and they really provide an extra attention with a smile.

For being in Leuven for a couple days now, decided to have Italian. There's a variety of places but we decided to choose this place for there pizzas. The tables were practically full and being on Munstraat street is always fun watching people along the restaurants. We started out with the carpaccio which was great. The lobster bisque had better...

Modern décor and clean style create an inviting atmosphere. Staff were friendly. Extensive menu. Asparagus soup and saltimbocca were good. It was nice that they offered an after-dinner drink on the house as a little unexpected bonus. Seems to be a place for a reliable meal

Sunday night in Leuven. Friendly service, ambience good. We both had the asparagus starter which was spoilt by a lake of butter and un-necessary added veg. Other half had lamb fillets as main. I had salmon with a lake of holandaise sauce - both too salty. Wine was quaffable and reasonably priced but overall expensive for what it was. Pleasant... More

I have been about 4-5 times to Acquasanta and have always been pleased with everything. I dont go in with huge expectations but i have also always been with a "social deal" voucher for a 3 course meal. The food was great and i also got a bottle of champagne for my birthday. The service has always been great and... More

Impressive modern restaurant with a very inviting menu too. Also the food doesn't disappoint and is worthy of the price. Worth a mention is the impressive beer list with a real wide choice of excellent Belgian beers. The restaurant does fall down on service. Ordering a beer at 22:30 we were told too directly that they will close soon. Eventually... More

We had lunch here-- a pizza and a plate of venison came to more than 50 euros! The food was quite delectable, but that sort of price range for lunch was a bit much. Service was quite good. Everything was well cooked and flavorful. Definitely recommended!
