I had lunch here in a wonderful sunny day. Pizzas are ok. The menu costs 10€ and include a medium pizza and the drink. All the pizzas are handmade on time and using a traditional wood woven. They have a nice terrace in the back to enjoy the sun.

This is a local Italian restaurant with excellent food, superb service and an authentic atmosphere. On top of this, prices were very decent. We tried the Pizza which was very good, straight from a real wood fired oven. Try it. "Test Diner"

I went here following the good reviews I read. Staff is nice, but the place is nothing special and the pizza just average at best. Frankly overrated.

One of my favourite Italian restaurants in Brussels. Always go back for a pizza or so. Last time I had a huge and very tasty calzone with wonderful "ricotta"! Friendly environment and free welcome cocktail are definitely an asset!!

It is not easy to find good service in Brussels. This is where you will find it. Pizzas are very good. Certainly a good address!

Excellent pizzas and divine chocolate mousse. Nice bread and very good value. All staff are child friendly and they've got lovely cocktails. Go people!

We went there for a quick pizza after seeing the very favourable reviews. The staff is nice, aperitives offered, and the pizza was indeed very good, even though with the stellar reviews, I couldn't help but hoping for a bit more. I would definitely recommend it though, and would personally gladly go back.

Probably the best pizzeria in Brussels. You are greeted by the Wood fired oven on entering the restaurant and served a complimentary cocktail on the house. A nice touch since the average cost of a pizza is 13 Euro, maybe the more expensive restaurants in the city could learn a thing on hospitality here! Every time my wife and I... More
