Italian restaurant on the corner of one of the most beautiful streets of Schaarbeek. Two waiters who know their business very well indeed.Excellent lunch with a tasty glass of red wine. Excellent value for money, and the people we took there to have lunch with us all agreed that this is a place where they want to come back to.

This restaurant changed owner several times in the past years, with mixed results. Since 2015, it is managed by two Italians who made it again into one of the top Italian cuisines in Brussels. Not cheap, but really worth it!

The restaurant has a nice interior and doesn't cram too many tables too close to each other. We had dinner there on a Friday night and it got quite busy so booking a table is essential. On the food I can be brief: it was certainly not bad but to be perfectly honest, considering the price charged I expected more.... More

Wonderful service in a superb setting along one of Brussels finest avenues. The lunch is a bargain and the wine list full of treasures.

I have been going to this place for more than 10 years. It has (again) new owners, but this time quality and service have definitely improved again. I even regretted not having taken a starter, because the main was really great and so was the dessert. Also the waiter was very friendly and tried to speak different languages (we had... More

La buca di bacco is a very small restaurant - so don't expect to just call in for a table. The inside is glorious with an enormous candelabra which sparkles in the glass and mirror. Setting exceptional! Service is typically french - in that the waiter knows best! This can be fun - it depends on your mood. The menus... More

New owner and old chef. Elizabetta is the new owner and Salvatore the old chef. Opened since 7 August, the restaurant is back to serving creative; unique dishes based on Italian favourite and cooked by a chef who cooks from his heart. Reasonble prices, attentive staff and a wholly excellent dining experience.

Lovely little setting and very (perhaps a too) friendly waitress. Enjoyed the touch of a free glass of fizz on arrival and a little amuse-bouche, but the food was really average. I went for one of the suggestions that came with spaghetti and not the advertised tagliatelle and it was really chewy and not very good at all. A wine... More
