Lunch outside was OK. The food selection is somewhat limited but most is freshly made. Pasta dish was excellent. The salads were ok and not very refined (big lettuce pieces). Drinks are fine and prices are normal for what is offered. Service is OK.

Great food (burratina pugliese for starter, cacio è pepe pasta for main dish, tiramisu for dessert - all spot on, all recommended!), very friendly and efficient service - in short: a wonderful experience!

Beautiful restaurant, attentive staff and lovely fresh food. It’s a small, romantic Italian with a feminine refinement. Will definitely come back next time we’re in Brussels.

As a few have mentioned, the service was warm friendly and welcoming. No faults there. We ordered 2 Campari spritz to start but were informed after several minutes there was no ice so prosecco it was. While deciding, complimentary olives were enjoyed. For main we...More
