When you enter the restaurant everything smells like Italy. The open kitchen at the entrance confirms that quality has the first place here. You can find simple but traditional Italian pasta and other main dishes that you can't easily find in Brussels. Service is good and attentive. Deeply recommended: book in advance if you are more than two pp.

Very friendly service. Delicious pasta and steak. Tasty wines by the glass. Fun atmosphere. Fun watching the cooks at work. They do take away too.

This is a rare place - a restaurant serving pasta al dente, without huge quantities of sauce, in Brussels. Most places do not do this. La Piola is like eating in Italy. Beautiful pasta, with properly cooked sauces, served correctly. The place itself is truly a trattoria - nothing smart, just comfortable. Not too big either, so get there early... More

Really small and informal restaurant. Make sure to reserve or bring some patience with you, since they do not have many tables and if you do not reserve you need to wait ca. 30 minutes before getting a seat. In the while maybe you can enjoy a glass of wine. As told the place is small, this is why the... More

We ordered a delicious bottle of white wine (Muller-Thurgau) and tried some of the (offered) antipasti (you can sample some of their pasta & vegetables) when ordering a glass of wine. My friends ordered the... More

Fantastic food, brilliant wine and an ambiance restaurants with Michelin stars would be proud of. Simple menu, done very well with wines to match. They obviously love their food & wine and want customers to enjoy the experience , but not require a remortgage to do it.

Pasta was very well done and delicious. Our waiter was very sweet. Had to come back as there were no tables but managed to get a table several hours later. Not much of a decor but then again, the food and wine were so good I spent very little time looking around.
