“True Italian hospitality”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

Went there on recommendation and... was absolutely positively surprised; A real family atmosphere and they told that they will soon open a catering/takeaway boutique neaar the Museum of Fine Arts. Must go there to experience the same food at my home!!! Great winelist and large choice of personalized classical italian food. Will be back soon....

“Maybe I ate the wrong dish...”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Tastes differ so I will try not to make big statements here. I ate the spaghetti ricci di mare (dutch: spaghetti met zee-egel), so admittedly, this was not the safe choice. Maybe it was just one of those few dishes which are just not my taste, but I though it was really not a nice dish. In addition it was expensive for a pasta (19 eur). A part from the taste, there were a few hard pieces in my dish which gave me the same experience as eating a salad which still contains sandy bits. I tried my friends pasta with tuna cubes also. That was definitely better but still, average at best. The wine was ok, but served too warm.

“good, but not excellent”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

We visited this restaurant with friends. The food and service was good.
Why 'average'?
The carpaccio was ok, but we ate better ...
The risotto with seafood was tasty, the pasta and the tuna fish were verry good.
The carpaccio of ananas was good, the black chocolat was ok, but not 'moeilleux', the white chocolat was a cake without chocolat. The waiter told the chocolat was in the cake ...
We didn't find it! We didn't taste it!
This is definitively a good Italian restaurant, but our expectations were higher!

“A little Sicily on your plate ... big time!!”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

Once a while a little culinary gem comes to town and it so happens to be from Sicily.... To Antwerp locals and visitors alike: if you want to experience the real Southern Italian cuisine, its fabulous tastes, wonderful aromas, and mouthwatering frescos on a plate, this small restaurant definitely deserves a visit. Manfredi (a true son from Siciliy) and team work wonders with fresh ingredients and a touch of enginuity. Their conviviality will also make you feel immediately at home. To wine lovers: there is a small but very nice selection of Italian wines, particularly from Sicily. To those not eating/drinking out on a budget string (or wanting to impress the significant other in tow): order a bottle of the excuisite Etna Rosso. A double bravo for this new and young team of cuisiniers...
