“A real Italian”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

The restaurant is located in the De Keyserlei, on the sixth floor above the Hylitt Hotel. That by itself creates some special "vistas" of the city. A very nice interior and, in the summer, a gorgeous terrace.
Foodwise you get real Italian specialties in a wide variety of ingredients AND a mouth watering list of suggestions. The Osso Bucco for instance is known to have made people sing Italian opera arias!!!
The wine list is also extensive and with lots of great bottles. Prices are rather steep but then this is the case for most Italian wines in any restaurant. They get away with it and we want it.
Recommended for an excellent meal with a reasonable price tag.

“Small portions, very expensive, poor service”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Service is not friendly. You feel like you should be grateful to get some food. The food you get is very tasty. Portions ar way too small. Very expensive. Nice vieuw form the terrace, but you can't eat outside even when the weather is outstanding. I would never come here on my own impulse. We come here with work once in a while.

“Much too expensive”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Very nice view over Antwerp, average food, not worth the price we paid. Several better and cheaper Italian restaurants in the environment.
