“Cosy and comforting”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Cosy restaurant, seated very close to other guests which we don't normally like, but in this place it just seemed to add to the experience. Staff very attentive - warmed breads and olives as soon as we were seated and then more breads brought soon after we ordered; wine topped up for us; quick clear-always and next course brought etc. Menu in French - manager able to explain items to us in English when needed. We shared 'cheese croquettes' to start, followed by 'gnocchi aux quattro fromages' and 'aubergine parmigiana' for mains. Very cheesy (a bit 'samey' after a while, but not bland) and if I were to go back a second time (and hadn't had pizza the night before) i would try their wood-fired oven cooked pizzas! Overall, a pleasing experience!

“Good fresh Italian food”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

Stayed very near this restaurant so it was convenient as we were tired the evening we visited it. The food was tasty with the pizza made fresh right in front of us. The restaurant was quiet and the atmosphere would have been improved with some music. Staff were almost over attentive because there weren't many diners in. Overall, warm, cosy and good food!

“Really good (if atypical) aubergine parmigiana”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

I had a really fantastic aubergine parmigiana at this restaurant, which is one of my favorite dishes (and never to be confused with eggplant Parmesan, the breaded dish). It was most definitely a Belgian take on the dish, with different cheese(s)than I've had before when ordering this in other Italian restaurants, but whatever they use, it was delicious - hot, gooey, perfect! One of the best meals I had in my 10 days in Belgium and Amsterdam. The pizzas others around me ordered looked perfect too!

“Where I feel at home in Brussels”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Rocco, the owner, is a true professional!
homely feeling, extra care and attention to detail.
Very wide menu and you would not believe how nice are the traditional Belg mussels they serve considering it is an italian restaurant! Good pizza cooked in a traditional wood oven, homemade warm bread with tarallucci to accompany your meal, excellent crepe suzette he makes a la minute with ice cream & seasonal fruit.
Also, sometimes mid week he gets extra fresh products from italy.
Indeed i am a regular, always a pleasure to pay him a visit.
