Good Italian food, a notch above the ordinary. I did not understand why we got our amatriciana and carbonara with pennoni instead of bucatini and spaghetti, but the sauces were good. The price is high, though. Lunch for two easily ends up at 100€.

I'm not sure what we did to upset the waitress but she was borderline hostile until one of our group spoke to her in Italian. And then she was all sweetness and light. The food is okay, although why anyone would regularly pay 15 euros...More

Food is very good and really made and served the Italian way. "Spaghetti cacio e pepe" are outstanding and are worth a visit. Same for the "parmigiana" starter. When weather is ok you also have the possibility to eat outside. Little overpriced but quality is...More

It is not the first time that I pay a visit to this nice place; besides, I do consider it as one of the best italian restaurants in Brussels. The food is more than decent, although suffering from consistency, i.e. huge discrepancy at dishes' levels....More

The place is nice and cosy, we were seated on stools at a table in front of the bar, but it was comfy, far from the entrance and the cold air plus it was a quiet area in the restaurant which we appreciated since there...More

It was a cold day in Brussels and the restaurant was quite draughty and not very warm which reduced the pleasure of the meal. We tried the fried artichoke special - was quite disappointed as the outer leaves were quite burnt and tasteless. The veal...More
