Settling in for dinner after an all-night flight from the States and a day of sightseeing (the old hit the ground running strategy), our son had arranged for our party of six to share the chef's table for dinner at Particolare.

We walked in to the kitchen to find candles lit and rose petals strewn about. Breathtaking. Even better--the amazing dinner of small plates that followed. An easy pace, from the risotto croquettes and the gently-prepared vegetables in emulsion to the marinated tuna plate, with lovely wines to match. My sense of the cuisine--everything is light and fresh, perfectly seasoned, and full of intense flavor. (It's without question one of the nicest meals we had during our week-long stay in Belgium and Germany.)

The chef, Philippe, sat with us, sharing a beer and great conversation. An ebullient man, full of wonderful stories and great cooking tips. He's a fun character to get to know!

I found this" restaurant" via tripadvisor and really regret we went there. First , this is not a restaurant but a shop for ready take away food. There are 4 miserable tables. the food is microwave heated and may be with luck from yesterday or without luck from 4 days ago. Any way this place should not be even listed here as a restaurant. If you buy ready food from Delhaize, it will be fresher and certainly would not cost 200€ My rate for this place is - minus 5 stars. For all this great Italian restaurants in Antwerp how is it possible this thing to be on first place.

We would first thank the staff of Particolare for the great evening we spent in their company .
As a regular user of tripadvisor I have to say that the critics Particolare received from other visitors match perfectly with our experience .
Particolare presented us a huge variety of really tastefull and different dishes wich were to be chosen from a big counter.
The Sformato off cabage with oxtail , the rolled pasta filled with quince, almond, spinach and ricotta as well the grilled tuna with tunamayo were our personal favourites.
The staff told us the menu is changing almost daily and they offer take away and cater for various events as well .
After getting valuable advice about the fine wines , we got seduced by chocolat and coffee( an excellent , yet unknown brand called Esssecaffe).
To finalize this mail , maybe some suggestions to the owner ; trying to keep the feel of a real trattoria , with warm atmosphere shouldn't stand in the way off having more comfy seating .

I was on holiday in Antwerpen, and with the friends we went to eat at the Particolare, the food was great and the service very simple but nice! Dishes accompanied by fine wines recommended by the owner Olivier! I recommend it to anyone searching for a delicious dinner at reasonable prices and in a very friendly ambient! And we are Italian, so we can really confirm that the foods was great.

It's small but cosy, the food is delicious and the service very personal and friendly.

We just gave the guy some hints about what we liked (and didn't) and he prepared and served the amazing food, plate for plate, just as much as we liked. Add some delicious wine and we had a dinner to remember!
Most certainly not our last time here :)
