“We go here a lot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

And indeed the waiting times can get annoying. But they have an excellent wine list so sitting at the bar drinking wine and eating olives is a good way to pass the time.
The service can be abrupt but it has friendlyness and efficiency at its heart.

Book for early in the night. If you book for later then there's no guarantee the regulars on your table will move along as they're supposed to and you'll be left waiting anyway. But get some wine. Place your order and enjoy the atmosphere

“Excellent Pizza at Pizza Saco!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

Just got back from a Pizza here and have to say it was excellent.

It didn't start too well as I arrived 40 minutes before opening time so venture back to the hotel and then came back out again to arrive at opening time, a few minutes passed and a lady turned up who let me in, I don't think they knew I was hanging around outside the locked door.

Stepping in, I was impressed, you could see the clay oven an ingredients all out...nice....the bar in the corner with a good selection of drinks on offer.

So while I tried to interpret the menu which Google Translate was no help with, crashing when I took a photo......I decided on something that seemed to be four cheese, "spice"....(peppers), chorizo and onions....and I ordered a vodka and coke....good lord the measures are huge here, about 60ml or so I reckon....I was thinking they were expensive at first but they are big.

The pizza came out and it tasted very very good, the clay oven had done it justice, enjoyed it very much, strong cheese flavours.....a bit of spice from those green peppers...all good....a small bowl of black olives to go with it.....nice!

The time from order to delivery of the pizza was good too.....I guess when it's busy like other reviewers have said it will be longer as they only have a single clay oven.

The atmosphere was very good with nice cool trendy chillout music playing.

After a couple of very average restaurants in Brussels this has restored my faith.....it's in the middle of nowhere....the Saco signs are upside-down....not sure why that is....but the food and surroundings are great....I would definitely visit again if in the area.

“Best pizza place in Brussels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

Very nice place. Gets crowded so make sure you book a table in advance by phone. Visited many times and always got assured this is the best pizza in Brussels, creative yet traditional and fresh.

“SACO'S GREAT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

I really like the place. It's theme of everything being upside down is very entertaining. Prices are a bit high and I have had pizzas that just pip these ones! Overall, excellent!

“Good food, but....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

The pizzas were really good! However, the service was rather slow and not very friendly (although the restaurant was almost empty they insisted that we sit at a table we really didn't like too much).

Also the prices are somehow high for a simple pizza place.
