“Excellent restaurant with a wide ranging menu and great service”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

I go to Il Veliero quite regularly and the food is excellent. It is a haven for vegetarians and vegans, and for those who are gluten intolerant and my meat eating friends say that they have the best steaks in town. And as for the desserts, ......... The service is so friendly too. Excellent little find.

“Haven for starving vegans”
Reviewed 17 May 2011

If you're vegan, this is the thing about pizza - it's no problem getting a pizza without animal products, cheese or a meat sauce. What's tricky is finding a dough made without eggs or milk. The *real* traditional Italian dough is nothing but flour, salt, yeast, maybe a little sugar. Unfortunately lots of restaurateurs ruin a perfectly good recipe and add dairy products or eggs. I was having trouble finding something substantial to eat in this corner of Brussels so I was happy to see this restaurant. The man who served me was visibly insulted at the mere suggestion that he might have added animal products to the dough.

As for the pizza itself, it was okay. Not worth 10 EUR. I should have asked for some of that spicy oil. Still, I was so hungry I ate almost all of it in one sitting. Glad I came across this place.

“A cute, warm, friendly restaurant with lots of character due to its charming owners!”
Reviewed 31 October 2009

The owners of this restaurant are the most wonderful people and the food their kitchen creates is delicious. They have a separate gluten free menu and everything I tried was fantastic. The gluten free bread in fact was so amazing I checked three times that it was definitely "sans gluten". It was in fact so excellent I rang my sister in Australia who speaks French to ask her to tell them how amazing it is and thank them for providing such a wonderful variety of delicious gluten free dishes. My partner is not "gluten free" and enjoyed their other dishes greatly as well. These people and their restaurant is a god send and I would recommend it to everyone regardless of their gluten status!
