The food is good, the tiramisu is great! Nice atmosphere with very friendly staff. Maybe a bit overpriced, but still worth a regular visit!

“Very tasty !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

A cosy place to have some very honest italian food.
Good ingredients. Well prepared.
We also noted (downstairs) it is a traiteur (fresh prepared italian take away food). Upstairs a a small restaurant with only a few tables.
Nice location (in the center of leuven, close to everything) and super italian food !

“Just Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

Friendly, warm, informal atmosphere. Great pasta, excellent wine and a smile! Will be back for sure.
The only drawback is the absence of parking options in the proximity, you will have to walk min 200 meters if lucky.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Decided to come in on a Monday night after seeing the pasta in the window. The service was friendly and excellent. I had the carne ravioli and my friend had the pasta groenten, both of which were amazing. There seemed to also be a steady business of people coming in to order pasta take away. I wouldn't hesitate to come back again.

“Good fresh pasta's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

Finally a restaurant with quality pastas! How it should be!
Coming from an Italian family I have a very critical view and I can testify this is a pretty good representative for Italian pasta.
The service is pretty slow, but friendly.
I would definitely come here again.
