Not interested. Asked politely for an English menu, told no and left alone. No attempt at help. Warm Coca Cola. Pretty basic food. Unimpressed, so much better around.

Went there with work colleagues. It is definitely one of the worst Italian meal I ever had and each one of us was unhappy with their dish. We have vegetarian fare, meat, fish, pizza and pasta dishes and none of us found it nice. Plus it was pricey. So we have crossed that restaurant out of our address book. But... More

went back and were very pleased again with the lively atmosphere, the very friendly staff and the correct food. We had pasta Salvarino (bit smoked and cream: top) and the veal with procini.

Good honest Italian food- not many frills, but tasty ingredients. Comfortable seating and good service. Nice for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Was taken here for lunch when working nearby and have to say that it is very average. The food was ok but my carbonara had too much gristle and fat in it and my colleagues pizza was very tough and a world away from the place we ate nearby the day before. The staff were very friendly, they just need... More

We had different appetizers to strat with, the Parmigiana is wonderful. Mains were a correct and delicious 4 stagioni pizza, succulent veal and a really good dorade fillet with steamed vegetables. The zabaglione were made at the table. Very friendly staff.

Been here a few times. Always very friendly and welcoming staff with a good changing specials menu. Both pasta and pizzas are beautiful, reasonable prices. Good for families and couples.

I visited this restaurant for dinner on a business trip to Brussels. After a tour around the square to check the restaurants offering I picked this one. I first skimmed through the menu to find no spelling mistakes: usually a positive sign. Then followed Mr. Salvatore's suggestions and went for a richer-than-expected mixed Italian appetizer (not on the menu) and... More

This is by far one of the best Italian restaurants i have even been in my life. It reminded my a few restaurants in Rome as well as pizzerias in Athens. The last time i had such a delicious pizza baked in stove with woods was many years ago. The pasta is what i would say their strong point. All... More

The restaurant is nothing to boast about. For my job I regularly have to visit the VRT/RTBf. The restaurant is conveniently located near the Belgian national broadcaster at Place Meiser and everybody seems to know the place so it's convenient to take people to lunch. The food is nothing special and the service is ok at best. The space can... More
