A rainy evening in Leuven: The Rossi is a typical italian restaurant with a friendly staff and a competent chef: the menu was very typical but honnest and delicious. The wine list is well adjusted and prices are justified. A very pleasant and authentic experience

Arguably the best Italian restaurant in Leuven, and one of the best I've ever experienced, even in Italy. The pasta courses are particularly good. Main courses can sometimes try to be too complicated; with Italian food simplicity is everything. The house wines served by the...More

Just back from a wonderful dinner. The restaurant is simple and small, but who cares when you can have top quality ingredients cooked with fantasy and expertise. Gone for the three courses dinner, a starter ( huge) of carpaccio with balsamic vinegar and figs; pasta...More
