Lovely little setting and very (perhaps a too) friendly waitress. Enjoyed the touch of a free glass of fizz on arrival and a little amuse-bouche, but the food was really average. I went for one of the suggestions that came with spaghetti and not the...More

We had made a booking online for 9pm for 2 people. We got to the restaurant at 8:59 and were seated immediately... and not spoken to, attended to or even noticed for another 15 minutes. After 15 minutes and several glances at the one waitress...More

As an ex-regular I can honestly say that the quality of the food and the service has gone downhill. They pretend to be soemthign they are clerly NOT - i.e. a classy and authentic Italian place (with the price tag that goes with that notion)....More

This is a small but very beautiful "art nouveau" restaurant in the Schaarbeek region, just outside the tourist area of Brussels. Food was well presented but "neutral" in taste, not exactly italian, something between italian, belgic and french: a result "nothing special". Service was good,...More

I've eaten here often in this, my neighbourhood restaurant and you should share it. The restaurant - style art nouveau, is friendly with the most wonderful chef, Salvatore, who cooks from his heart. Today I had grilled sardines stuffed with cheese and covered in breadcrumbs...More

The restaurant is located in a great stylish house of early 20 century, amazing. Very kind service, relaxed atmosphere. The wine list, just Italian, is quite good although a bit short, with usual-in-Brussels 300% mark-up. Classic food with a modern touch. Good

It has a pewter bar... they hardly speak any English... but my word they can cook! Great wine list, tremendous traditional Italian cooking. Superb attentive service. The place is a hidden gem! Treat yourself to something from the specials board... but the lamb on the...More

Honestly, as someone who has many years' experience in the hospitality sector, the only criticism I could make about this establishment is that the portions are too big! The menu is not revolutionary - familiar dishes, but executed with a "twist" and an evident love...More

I went to this restaurant with 3 friends. When you enter the restaurant you'll find out that a lot of detail went in the decoration. We were welcomed like family(what did you expect in an italian restaurant). We got a great round table. The menu...More
