I had lunch with a good colleague at Osteria Bolognese today, excellent. I picked the first thing off the menu on the blackboard, tagliatelle al ragu, it was very nice. We had a glass of sangiovese and a coffee to finish, great food and wine. The coffee was not great but it was compensated for by the quality of the food and the friendly and fast service. Finally a lunch place where you don't need to take a day off... I am going back!

I recommend to go for the pasta and skip the lassagne. The portion of lassagne is too small and furthermore they do not give you complementary bread when they serve it so, you finish hungry (they give you two tiny slices of bread at the beginning). Very economical with the sause bolognesse in the lassagne, very few layers, the upper layer was burned, dry as a result of overheat and not enough sause on top. However, if you disregard the first layer, it taste like the real thing. Desserts were for me the best part and wine was very good too. In general, unbalance, some good point and other not so good.

Dear Beto 79,
thank you for your constructive criticism on lasagne. We will defenitely take it into account and can guarantee that you will see the results next time you are a guest at the Osteria.
Concerning the complementary bread...all you had to do was to ask for it!
Best regards,
Giacomo

I went for lunch with some friends to this cosy little Italian place. We reserved well in advance, which is really recommended as there are only a few tables. The lasagna was superb, the tagliatelle - according to my friend- was delicious too. The tiramisu- to die for. We will definitely go back! They were even welcoming when our friend arrived with her 6 month old baby. The bill came on a toy Vespa and the business card is hand written. We loved this little touches. Go before it gets difficult to book!

This restaurant is a small bit of Emilia Romagna transferred in Brussels. Giancarlo and Silvia are the perfect host!!
The pasta and primo piatti are divine and the tagliere as it should be!!! Go not think twice, go there!!!

Superb genuine food, the most welcoming service ever and the best atmosphere. We loved it! You eat here like in an Italian home. There are few dishes typical from Bologna. Pasta is homemade and super fresh ingredients are used for the rest. Excellent!!! Just...the price could be lower, but it is in line with Brux prices...
