A very good choice! Menu is written on a blackboard as it changes often with always fresh ingredients. Best meat I had in Brussels and delicious "polenta" sticks (corn flour ). Very tasty, excellent burrata and mozzarella, service is lovely in this family run restaurant.

I had Scamorza al forno for a starter and it was fine. Pasta with asparagus for the main - nice seasonal touch. The bread and olive oil served at the beginning were not of the highest quality (but still OK). The staff was very nice.

A simple restaurant with a good selection of dishes which are very good . Very generous portions. I would have had enough with one dish. Wine is fine. Recommended. Book in advance at weekends.

Menu is small and changes all the time which makes every dish very authentic and it shows they use good seasonal ingredients. Prices are reasonable considering the high quality cuisine. Very friendly service who explained well every dish. Highly recommended.

The pizzas are fantastic. I haven't tried the pasta yet though I should. We often take pizzas to go too. The staff are so friendly and you feel so welcome. The decor is nothing special so you could easily not be tempted to go in...More
