I Went for the second time. The food was fabulous and the service very professional with personal touch. We enjoyed dinner in this very cozy atmosphere; we took both an entrance and we shared a main corse. Reservation is recommended even they will respond on Facebook messages as phone was not working properly

Delicious fish and seafood Italian dishes. The grigliata di pesce is absolutely gorgeous and features the best grilled octopus in town (also available as a dish). Very friendly atmosphere. Best if you come in twos or in small groups.

Recently I have visited ricciocapriccio as many ppl reccomended. It was very good choice. No room for dissapointment. I have oreder grilled octopussy. It was amazing. Crunchy, fresh with delicious batatas cream. One star less due to the price and availability. You need to book a table days in advance.

After several years spent in Brussels and having tried many Italian restaurants, I can say this is the best one. Fresh ingredients, a varied menu (with an emphasis on southern Italian dishes) that changes on a weekly basis, great service and a very nice atmosphere! It's important to book a table in particular during the weekend.

After reading about this restaurant on a blog online, I decided to make a reservation and see what it was all about. I didn't get through but left a message on their voicemail. The same evening the staff called me back and confirmed my reservation. When arriving, we found a small but very cosy restaurant with inviting staff. The menu... More

Good value for money. Nice food, not cheap but it pays off. I had a seafood soup that was very tasty. Deserts are standard though. No limoncello on the house.

We had a reservation, a good idea as its a busy buzzy little restaurant. We were seated in the garden. There is a large blackboard Menu on the wall - no paper menu at all. Anti-pasti, Primi and Secondi courses featuring mainly seafood. We chose 4 anti-pasti : the sardines were superb, beautifully presented and tastey. The mozzarella was unctuous... More
