Unfortunately our dishes were totally not to our expectations. Too small portions for a too high price and waiting a long time for our apetizers. Water bottles had to be asked repetitively. The ingredients on our dish were not enough represented. Pasta with it's leeking water underneath it. When they asked if we enjoyed we told them the thruth...they answered... More

We just had lunch at I Famosi. We were nearly the only ones in the restaurant. The suggestion we chose was not available, seems more like a place focused on dinner rather than lunch. Praces were normal, platters were not stunning. The porc cheecs were just splashed on the dish with only a dot of potaties and some veggies. Nouvelle... More

For business I stayed in Antwerp. I was invited to this place by local people who live just around the corner. They use to come here quite often. The place was crowded but not completely full.

The food here is very good! Amazing, considering the many options the menu card is offering. The setting inside however was not to my liking: very crowded, the tables were squeezed too close to each other and what bothered me the most was the very noisy setting; it was very hard just to understand the guests at my table. So... More

We loved what was served. A pity we had to wait so long to get these adorable dished at our table. Staff could be more attentive. It took them some time before they noticed us. Atmosphere and decoration are absolutely fabulous.

Great Italian restaurant, nice decor and great decoration! The food and personal was also really good. The price was on the high side of our budget.

Greedy restaurant doing two sittings but not seating people until 45 minutes after allotted time. No bar area and surly staff. Average food. Won't be coming back.
