“Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

Very good Italian cooking with style. Excellent service. Very suitable for business lunch. You'd better book ahead as it tends to be crowded.

“Old style excellence, splendid presentation, scrumptious food, fabulous sommelier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

The welcome was warm, the food wonderful. We were not interested in eating a traditional Belgian meal, heavy with creams, so we happened into this place. This is your choice for a truly outstanding Italian meal. The restaurant is in close proximity to administrative offices of the various EU buildings, so there were two groups from there. The people in these groups were clearly habitual clients, as the staff greeted them warmly... But their welcome extends to all diners... We loved it! We shared a dish of three artisanal cheeses: a burrata, mini-mozzarella balls and very fresh ricotta in a red bell pepper purée. Stunning flavors. I had turbot resting on a bed of baby white asparagus in a chive sauce and red bell pepper purée with potatoes roasted in olive oil with rosemary. Such a simple preparation for potatoes, but they were bursting with flavor! For dessert, we split fresh strawberries with a house-made ice cream of balsamic cream vinegar and mint. (Sounds odd, but was a highlight of the meal...) We highly recommend this splendid restaurant!

“I forgot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

Should have reviewed this excellent restaurant a long time ago. Discovered it a couple of years ago, hidden away in this little street, more or less opposite my working place. Wish I had discovered it earlier. - Lovely service, excellent italianate food, very correct prices. The interior is quite conservative, no music (good) as the noise level tends to get quite high anyway, thanks to happy guests.

“Excellent little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

I went to eat at this place by pure chance, invited by some old timers. It turned out to be a well kept secret as I had never heard of it. The "orecchiette alle cime di rapa" were at the level you'd expect in their Puglia birthplace, a generous portion and impeccably executed with quality tasty ingredients. As a main course a fabulous branzino (Loup de Mer/ Bar), one of the best fish I've had away from a sea-shore restaurant in season. For desert, a neapolitan Pastiera, again impeccable, soft at its core and with a pronounced yet subtle orange flavour.
We drank an excellent Prosecco and Falanghina.
The overall atmosphere is homey, warm, unpretentious and welcoming, the staff very friendly and efficient. This place can easily be your default lunch spot, a very convenient business lunch venue and a homey gathering place for a group of friends in the evening. I wish it was nearer my home. Decor is nothing to write home about.
Being in the European Institutions area it is only open at lunch time but can easily be booked for evenings provided you are a group of 10. Strongly recommended.
[can't rate the pricing as I was a guest but am told it is very reasonable and excellent value]
