This high quality venue is really the place to be when on business trip or with family around Brussels Airport. Even worth the detour if you're just driving east-west or not-south of Belgium. You will be the guest of several marvellous hosts and you'll feel wellcome and will be treated as family. Food wise you will be surprised of the... More

The food is amazing. Not just your typical Italian restaurant. We were greeted by the friendly waiter who took good care of us all evening.

We visited this restaurant three times in the last 4 months and the cooking is fine but we have now decided never to return. The head waiter (a heavy set gentleman) is not welcoming at all, very bossy, down right obnoxious at times! If you are out for a relaxing evening DON'T try this restaurant.

Highly recommend this restaurant if you are staying in any of the business hotels at Brussels airport. Small walk but easily navigable in this day and age, and certainly worth it. High quality Italian and lovely service

I have had some good meals here but to have a reservation and be crowded in a corner was acceptable, but to be handed a menu, food order taken and served almost immediately made me wonder if food is prepared in advanced. Our regular waiter was rude, rushed us and we were out in twenty-five minutes. I was amazed because... More

Food, atmosphere and service was excellent but with one major drawback. The staff stubbornly refuse to speak or understand Dutch, alltough the official language of the region

Very good italian restaurant. Good home cooking. They even make things that are not on the list. Then you need to be patient.

Despite the fact I got a parking ticket (it seems you have to set a parking card for a maximum of 2 hours in that area, which was not very clearly marked), my evening was not ruined. It's been a while since I enjoyed a meal so much. I had scallops & shrimp as a starter and duck with nougat... More

more upscale Italian restaurant... lots of choices from pasta over salads and meats... with obviously some very typical Italian dishes. Quality is really different than your average Italian around the corner... really nice food prepared in a fully open kitchen where you can watch every move... all served by friendly trilingual staff... and all for a very reasonable price.
