Stopped here with two hungry children. Staff helpful. Sat outside so had takeaway prices but they still provided a high chair. Had a proschitto pizza for €7-decent size, shared between us. Ordered a maxi box of pasta for about €5. They do these in three sizes and they come in cardboard boxes. The mini one is €3 and is about the right size for one person. We got the biggest to share between the children. Fusili pasta with bolognaise and it was delicious! We all shared this too!

We sat outside, next to the main square, eating very well for a reasonable amount. There were very clean toilets upstairs (steep stairs). Would eat here again.

I and my wife came into this tiny restaurant by chance. Actually, after our visit to Groening Museum we realized it was late and could not find any restaurant which could accommodate us. Normally we are not so fond of italian food abroad, but we a friend of told us of a place where we could eat decently any time. Well, we found it but the owner was very rude and unpolite in rejecting us. I don't want to tell which is this Restaurant, but just outside of it, we pointed to Pasta Presto, luckily. We are italian so we are quite expert about pasta and pizza. Well, at Pasta Presto the pasta is really tasteful, not at all overcooked (which is rare everywhere outside Italy) and the pizza is more than adequate. Then talking about the service, you can not of course expect silver cuttery and linen tablecloth,; you can choose to seat inside, where you'll be served or take your place outside and take your pasta (or pizza..) with you. All the staff is very friendly and more than willing to do its best to help you. While being sitting at the table outside, I just had to turn my sight on the right to have a perspective of the Markt place. Strangely, although it was no luxury restaurant, it was a pleasure to be there. The price are tiny, and the value for money is high. By the way, we went there the next day too....

Just walking through the square, stumbled upon this place completely by chance. Saw a lot of youngsters who looked like students queuing up for food when the other nearby places were empty at peak lunch time. Had to be something special here - as we all know, students are the best detectives when it comes to budget eating places. We (family of 4 including a 5 and a 7 year old) were met by a delightful waiter who actually helped us decide (which is rare now-a-days) what to order. The portions were enormous and delicious. Both the pasta and the pizza we had were excellent, not to mention the super chilled Belgian beer I had. About the price, something to ponder.......it is excellent value if you take your food in the take-away box to the 1st floor seating area, but I think we ended up paying twice as much because we took the ground floor seating area and were served by real people, which is fair enough. Still, I would say it was less expensive compared to other places. The ultimate selling point for us was the quick service.

After reading other reviews about this place,we thought we would check it out.Great food and there's plenty of it.Very reasonable prices compared to nearer the main square,where the prices are a lot more expensive.

This is an unpretentious pizza/pasta restaurant that also serves a few meat dishes as well as starters. We sat outside as it was a hot day but other than that there was seating upstairs they must use in cooler weather. Service was quick, polite and fuss free. We had pasta dishes which were specials - mine was a penne dish with chicken in a delicious creamy sauce. We had a litre carafe of wine which was about 18 or 19 euros which is cheap for Bruges. We really enjoyed the meal and would have gone back if we'd been staying longer. We didn't have pizza but they looked really nice. They were doing a roaring trade in takeaways so seemed pretty well known.
