“Far From the Madding Crowd”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Sometimes, wherever you are, only a pizza will do. We took a taxi to this Italian restaurant which is , rather bizarrely, located in an anonymous suburb of the city. It has a very cool modern decor, perhaps a little soulless for the romantically inclined. Service was, initially spot on, there only a few other diners, and the pizzas arrived after a reasonable wait. You can see them being made and placed in the oven, freshness is guaranteed. A word of caution, I chose the Parma and Prosciutto pizza, unlike others it is only available in large size, it was delicious but I was forced to concede defeat after eating 75%. For reasons that weren't entirely clear we had to wait an age for the dessert menu, the proprietor, ( who reminded me of John Cleese ) seemed to be running the place single handedly, we had seen on waitress leave, we thought on delivery duties, however she didn't return. I'm sure there are other good Italian places in Bruges but this was more than satisfactory.

“Fresh Italian with a Great Service”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

This restaurant is clean and it was refreshing to find out that everything they make is homemade. I had a pizza and was blown away by the freshness. They have a solid selection of wines and the service is excellent.

“Excellent Pizza with Sterile Service”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

As vegetarians we're used to eating a lot of pizza and pasta while on holiday in Europe, so we tend to look for the best places pizza when we arrive in a city. The pizza at La Trattoria was fantastic, but the beer menu wasn't amazing by Bruges standards. Our server wasn't rude, but wasn't exactly the master of hospitality either. We'd go back for a meal, but likely a quick lunch rather than an extended dinner as the ambiance was 'meh'. To be fair though, food-wise it was the best meal we had during our stay.

“Great little place”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

We drank our morning coffee in the nice and quiet backyard of this little restaurant. The owner was very welcoming and the coffee was good. It's a great place to eat or drink on your walk back to the train station from the city center.
