We were led there after a thorough search in Trip Advisor. A quiet Froissart Street on a Thursday night, a glowing resto, and a welcoming ambience. The waitress explained to us the Italian menu in detail, and what we tasted was comforting enough. Great wine...More

The choice was good and our meal was full of flavour. Service pleasent and as soon as we sat down we were offered an amuse bouche of tartine with flavoursome tomates. The house wine was good and you only pay what you drink from the...More

Just hopped out for dinner and found this gem of Italian cuisine just around the corner. Nice interior, some of the best risotto that you've ever eaten and great service by the owner and the chef. Go there, it is worth it. Michael Rupp

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!

One glass of Prosecco as apéritif. Starter: a small bruschetta. Main: a bad pasta. One glass of wine. 50 euros. No, seriously, it is a joke! The only place in Brussels where a bruschetta starter costs as much as a main with meat.More
