Dinner was okay. I had fried calamari for starter and trio pasta for the main. I've had better Italian food elsewhere but it was reasonably priced and the service was very good. But unfortunately for them there is much competition on muunstraat here!!

After a few dinners at Flemish restaurants, we preferred something Italian. We knew nothing about this restaurant but found the menu tantalizing. The service was efficient and friendly; the staff, Italian. We sampled various dishes, and enjoyed each. There is a good wine list, and...More
