They have good value combo meal off the busy hour. A blond beer, steak, salad and bread for 10 euro or so. It is really reasonable for the food and outdoor seating. The steak is not the best but good for hungry stomach. There are...More

The first thing you'll notice when you enter this Italian restaurant, not far from Gare du Nord, is the decoration: tasteful late-19th / early-20th century with a modern touch. There is a lot of space inside, despite the restaurant looking tiny from the outside, and...More

The restaurant is located on an alley filled with aggressive hawkers in the tourist area. We didn't expect much as a result, but they delivered even less. This restaurant is about foolery. The cloth napkins are on the table for show. You will get paper...More

I had high expectations, based in the nice interior. Unfortunately, the Penne with crab was slimy and mainly had a taste of garlic. Worst Italian food I have ever had. The glass of beer tasted good.

First of all, the place is beautiful - classic. The food was well presented and delicious. Friendly service even though we different languages.

Impressed by the grand yet relaxed interior of this small restaurant. The food was good and service was efficient. The lemon and asparagus linguni was interesting and I recommend the platter of mini deserts they offer. Located just by Rogier and pricing was acceptable.
