I visit Brussels regularly and I never miss a chance to visit La Fringale. The food is delicious and the staff is kind and pleasant. Highly recommended

Ate at this restaurant when meeting friends on a recent visit to Brussels. Located just off the upmarket Avenue Louise, we had a very enjoyable meal - the quality of the food was excellent Italian fare, efficient and friendly service, very reasonably priced, overall very nice atmosphere. Would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant and would definitely eat there... More

Visited La Fringale one evening as the restaurant in my hotel was closed and I am so glad I did. Lovely quiet atmosphere and the most delicious pizza I have had in a while (and I live in Florence, Italy). If you are looking for pizza in Bruxelles, this is the place to go to - highly recommended *****

Great food, good pizzas, reasonable prices, but some of the waiters seem to be rather tired and not very smiling.

Average food, acceptable / good prices for Brussels (pizzas between 10 and 15e), nice area. Unremarkable. Fast

On the street where this restaurant is, are several other restaurants, at least two other pizzerias. We chose this simply because it was the first one we came to. I had a pepperoni pizza. It was very good appeared to be hand thrown thinner crust. The ratio of cheeses to meat was spectacular.

This is a pizzeria place but they also serve a variety of Italian dishes. In a cold or rainy day, inside would be preferred.

Went for a light early dinner. Great customer service and comfortable homely atmosphere. Very good Pizza, fresh salads, lots of little complimentary treats as sides. What's not to like?

Simple Italian fare done well. Pizza is the usual stone baked affair that you get on the continent and is very tasty. My wife has pasta- can't remember which but it was a good portion, well cooked and very tasty. The service is your usual Brussels- pretty miserable- but still polite and efficient. Would return.

In an small street full of restaurant catering to tourists, this is the place to get a good pizza baked in a real wooden powered brick oven. The first thing you see entering the place. Forget the rest, and focus on the pizza. You will not be disappointed.
