This place is unusual in Charleroi in that it opens on a Sunday night. For this reason a friend and I, staying in the Ibis a few steps away, gave it our custom.

Friendly and funny staff, with good pizza. My colleagues had mixed reviews with the pasta and meat, but the pizza was great. I ate there twice.

The best thing about this restaurant is its location, some 100m from the Ibis Hotel. There are no other restaurants in the area due to heavy construction. The pizza was good, baked in an clay oven in front of customers and the lasagna wasn't bad either. Not a superb meal but quite ok.

The food was average and there were too much cheese on the pizzas. Also the pizzamaker was wearing a very dirty shirt which throw us all off a bit.

Nice pasta and pizza, really friendly place, very convenient if you stay next to to train station. They offer take away as well. The area around is a "must avoid".

It is not only Italian food which is served and the menu is also in English. You can see the rolls which are served with your meal being baked in a open oven. The food was good.

The food was excellent. The range of top biers was very good and the staff even the chef made us welcome enough to go there 4 out of the 5 days we were there.
