Place to get wood-oven pizza near the EU with service by white-shirted Italian waiters. The place bustles with locals and families in the evening, very relaxed but rushed atmosphere. Easy to get in and out quickly for a good meal. I waiters seem to share the tasks of serving so it might be difficult to figure out what is going... More

I use this place regularly for work. Service yo-yo's between smiles and snarls. You can count on service being speedy - sometimes so efficient that you've not had time to read the menu. Chef can be flexible and food is warm and tasty. Italian friends tell me the price is dear for a pizza but agree the food is good.

La Brace is conveniently located in the European quarter of Brussels, on a short foot walk away from the Shuman public transport hub. It is bigger than it looks with plenty of indoor seating offered. The staff doesn't all make the impression of being authentic Italians, but that doesn't compromise the quality of their pizzas -- they're delicious. The pizzas... More

Our group of about 8 from several different countries had a very good meal in pleasant atmosphere with excellent service. I had one of their folded pizzas and it was excellent, others had pizzas and beef - no complaints.

Well it is cheapest place but also not overly expensive. What you will appreciate is the Italian atmosphere in this traditional place. You will get live guitar music and decent Italian food.

One of the best Pizzas in Brussels, no doubt. Its been around for years and very well known. Unfortunately, for me, its like a production line.... they bring you your food pretty quickly, expect you to pay quickly and get the hell out of there because they have somebody to take your place.... it always seems rushed and you are...

I had a simple steak here with a colleague. The French fries were extra. A nice atmosphere with guitar music. It's pricey and very French bistro like. But nothing exceptional .. no wow factor .. typical grumpy waiters.. a good " eating house "..
