We decided to have diner just before going to the theatre. There is only one person running the restaurant and it shows. No money on his mind, only the smell of perfect Italian cuisine. It is no place for a quick bite, but the fresh bread and olive oil together with a bottle of Nero D'avola made the wait worth while. New people arriving were refused even with only half of the tables occupied. Not the most commercial attitude, but who cares? When the food entered the table all was forgiven. Perfectly served linguine with spiced up tomato sauce, ravioli to make you feel as in Tuscany. Do yourself a favour. Go to this restaurant but make sure to have a reservation. It would be a pity not to be able to enjoy the food.

Many years ago, I discovered this hidden gem in my home town Antwerp and having moved to Switzerland more than a year ago, it became a mandatory visit every time I am in Belgium.
Very fresh, never boring with sometimes an experimental touch. Just like the owner!
Briefly: amazing value for money...

In this small restaurant (opposite the Stadsschouwburg), they serve delicious fresh homemade pasta (as delicious as you would eat it in Italy!). The dishes are described in Italian, but the charming owner gives very good explanation. Very reasonable prices.

This is a small restaurant with a small kitchen, and everything is fresh and made to order . If you think in terms of flavour profile, you'll be in 7th heaven! We opted to have appetizers as well as mains, and though I'm completely stuffed, I wouldn't change a thing. My spouse had the involtini and I the bruschettini. Both fresh pasta dishes were unusual and delicious. I had to try the torte a limone and wasn't disappointed. We ordered a bottle of Le Arche Rossogrande 2007( Rossi Veronese ). An excellent accompaniment to our meal. I wish we could get it at home. Not too heavy, dry, with hints of fruitiness. Espressos were excellent. The service is amiable but slow due to the fact that there is only the owner serving, clearing, explaining, and covering the till.
Try it, you won't regret it.
