A fantastic Italian restaurant serving much more sophisticated dishes than Pizza and pasta. Chef is always keen to surprise you with his suggestions. Excellent quality. Great choice of Italian wines.

This is one of those places that for who like Italian food and knows Brussels, also know that this place is a mus-go. Incredible menu with a lot of pastas with very good flavours. The wine is also very good here.In fact, I think everything you can try here, you will be delighted. I repeat everytime I got the chance.

The place is terribly busy -- for good reason -- and they don't always take reservations especially for small parties so you'd better plan well ahead and show up early to grab a table without having to queue for ages. You'll enjoy the house aperitive anyway, on the house, no question asked. Their daily specials change regularly, but the pasta... More

In spite of the long cues and reservations, for some times now I have been able to secure a seat in this restaurant and really these guys got it! The food is absolutely very tasty, the atmosphere unbeatable and the price very fair. Sure any time when in Brussels you will find me here!

I was recommended this restaurant by a local and thought it was a truly excellent experience. I was very lucky to get a table on a Friday evening, not having booked. As a solo diner you are stuck away in a corner and the restaurant tries to get you fed and out as soon a possible. This definitely was not... More

Best Italian in the neighbourhood. It is always a pleasure to go to Il 'P' as we call it. The service and food is authentic. Very nice terrace (when open). A bit noisy during lunch tough.

This is my favourite Italian restaurant in Brussels. It is a small but cosy restaurant near Luxembourg Square. The service is very dedicated and professional. Usually, you will be served a glass of rosato and a small tapa. Then, let yourself go...! The daily specials are always a strong bet and well explained by the staff. The products used are... More

Arrived early in the evening and asked for a table outside and was told that they were all booked - shame that they were all empty when I left..,.. Given that I speak both Italian and French was not put off with previous reviews that there were no English menus, the male staff tried their best to translate, the test... More
