“Don't miss this one!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Don't be taken in by the guy standing near this restaurant. He is with the restaurant across the street, Leonardo Da Vinci. He bothers everyone walking by to get customers for his place. Go to Avanti, the food,service and atmosphere are so much better.Prices are good also...The service is so good and we were offered Amaretto after dinner.Nice touch.....

“the know how to treat their regular customers!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014

food OK - not exceptional but fair compaired to the price you pay - very friendly service - "special treatment for regulars" - in other, much more expensive places, you feel happy when you get 1 little limoncello "on the house". Here I often have to say "no thanks I've had enough". This after the 5th or 6th. Complainig is (too) easy, but if you're not happy here, go to resto "fontanella" or "la sirena" where you will pay 3 times as much. Only negative point for me: when really crowdy, you'll have to be patient before getting your food.

“Warm welcome and good italian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2012

I went in late evening on the offchance as I had not expected it to be still open. I should have looked more closely inside as it ws nearly full, mainly with locals who were obviously regular customers - always a good sign!. I was quickly ushered to a table and my drink and bread arrived swiftly. I had a starter and a main course. Both were perfectly cooked and were ample for me. The restaurant had a wide range of dishes and I will certainly be going again when I am next in Antwerp especially as their prices across the board were significanlty less than some of the other italian restaurants in the centre. .

“Horrible service, disappointing food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2011

We were a group of 4 that went there for dinner on a week day. In total we spend 2.5 hours in there where most of it was waiting for our food. Which in the in then was disappointing and lackluster. Waiters were horribly incompetent and didn't seem to care about their guests.

“Friendly service, affordable but do not expect too much.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2011

We’ve chosen this restaurants based on the reviews on this site.
The only reason I write a review here is to balance a bit the very high scores given by the 2 other travelers over here.
Far a starter I took the salmon Carpaccio. Instead I received a plate of smoked salmon.
While the quality was of acceptable (supermarket) level, it was not a carpaccio. I followed with an “escalope parmigiana” which was really disappointing. For those who took a pizza, everything was more or less ok.
Except for the terrace and the friendly service, do not expect too much. You’ll have a decent pizza at a competitive price.
