“Excellent Italian food in a nice environment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2011

This Italian restaurant is situated in one of the narrow streets around the central marketplace and the cathedral in antwerp, so really within walking distance for people visiting the historical center. It is located in an old house and offers a rather small but cosy interior. The restaurant is held by a couple, the husband being Italian ( from Milano) and his Belgian wife who learned cooking from her Italian mother in law. The food is really outstanding, all ingredients are fresh and prepared as they shoudl be: this is the taste of the real Italy as we like it. The service is also somewhat Italian-like: the husband takes care of the service in his own, very gentle and nice way, although sometimes slightly disorganised: but this all adds to the atmosphere which is really fantastic: to be recommend, but don't forget to reserve because the place is usually full !

“Italy in Antwerp”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2009

It is a very cozy and romantic restaurant. The italian owners take care about the menu and they cook from the family recepeits. The food, the service, the music and the atmosfere makes the visit to Gallo Nero a quick visit to Italy. Great job!
