“Bad service in the kitchen, food just OK, expensive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2013

Let me start saying that we arrived at the restaurant at 1 pm and the food arrived to our table 90 minutes later, for 2 pasta dishes and one of lamb chops, overcooked unfortunately. We complained to the owner but he only had excuses, like the cook was new or he had only 2 cooks in the kitchen, exactly just excuses if you need more people, then hire more people because you will end paying an average of 25 to 29 euros per pasta dish, which I found extremely expensive given the poor service, the food quality which was just OK and small portions and the ambiance which I would considered outdated.
When we asked for the bill, finally the owner came back and offered us a drink or coffee on the house and he recognized the bad service we had received. We thanked him for that but this is the last time we go back to this place because the waiter told us that this kind of service is standard.

“Excellent Supper”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013

We have just eaten at La Mia Cucina. After a very warm welcome, we ate a delicious meal (prawns with goats cheese starter particularly wonderful). What really topped off the evening was the dessert. Le patron offered a delicious sounding list of desserts but we then asked if he could make a zabaglione. He agreed and we were presented with the best zabagliones possible. Bravo, we strongly recommend the trip out of the centre of Brussels to this restaurant.
