“Good food and excellent waiters”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

We went with my friend (he was living in Brussels) because it was his favourite restaurant of the city. Maybe that comment and also his praises to the lasagne make me expect excellent food.

The lasagne was really nice and the price of it was 13,5 € and with a Leffe the price went to 17 € so it was ok.

In another league was our waiter that was really funny and helpful with all the customers and my friend told me that all the waiters are really friendly.

I totally recommend the restaurant and if is possible make a reservation because can be full.

“Great find!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

We were referred here by the staff at the Marriott nearby. What a great recommendation! Super personable staff, great food and wonderful value! Apps, dinner and wine for two - €70! Loved it! The ratatouille with goat cheese starter was delicious!

“Good food, friendly staff.”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We've been here last week. it's a few steps from place saint Gery and it's a small restaurant.
The Staff it's extremely friendly and the food it's very good too.
They did twice a mistake with our order (drinks and food) but they promtply manage to recover very quickly without making us wait. Definitively a plus.
The food it's nice but only one remark on my risotto, it was definitively overcooked but the taste was nice anyway.
I strongly consider to go back again!

“Great food, great service!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Went to Publico for a dinner - wasn't disappointed. Lovely service by Francois, who was very friendly and funny, which definitely contributed to our experience.

We had seafood risotto and ravioli - very tasty and beautifully decorated.

The place has lovely décor and pleasant music.

The only drawback is that this place DOESN'T ACCEPT CARDS. Luckily, we had an exact amount of cash to pay for the meal and to leave tips. Please don't forget to withdraw cash before your visit (the nearest ATM is at the tube station).

Overall, highly recommended if you are after decent Italian food and good service.
