This place was good, it is cozy and good ambience. However I am not impressed with the food quality, I think other Italian restaurants around are better. I have been there twice so far and both times I disliked the food.

I ordered lasagne bolognese and I get something which looks like orange soup with overcooked pasta and lot of oil.

We entered thinking the place serves Indian food, however were disappointed. Though the place was cozy, and served us decent vegetarian Italian food, the service was quite slow.

If you are looking for a decent quality food, not too expensive then try Avanti. I eat here once per week, run by two Italian brothers. Been here with large groups, colleagues and friends and always welcome. Seating area inside and outside. Very close to Antwerp Central station and Keyserlei (1 min walk).

The food was ok.. the table wasn't too clean however. The service wasn't professional but it was good. Overall I'd get it 2.5 stars. I'd try something else next time I'm in antwerp

Came to this place because it was the only restaurant in the neighborhood that had a lot of customers. The staff is friendly, service good, prices affordable but the food was average / below average. Don't expect too much from this place!

Don't be taken in by the guy standing near this restaurant. He is with the restaurant across the street, Leonardo Da Vinci. He bothers everyone walking by to get customers for his place. Go to Avanti, the food,service and atmosphere are so much better.Prices are good also...The service is so good and we were offered Amaretto after dinner.Nice touch.....

food OK - not exceptional but fair compaired to the price you pay - very friendly service - "special treatment for regulars" - in other, much more expensive places, you feel happy when you get 1 little limoncello "on the house". Here I often have to say "no thanks I've had enough". This after the 5th or 6th. Complainig is... More

I went in late evening on the offchance as I had not expected it to be still open. I should have looked more closely inside as it ws nearly full, mainly with locals who were obviously regular customers - always a good sign!.

We were a group of 4 that went there for dinner on a week day. In total we spend 2.5 hours in there where most of it was waiting for our food. Which in the in then was disappointing and lackluster. Waiters were horribly incompetent and didn't seem to care about their guests.
