I'v been in Il Fiore restaurant after my flemmish colleagues suggested me a good place to eat something. They told me Massimo, the chef, would be surprised to find and Italian guy like himself in Herentals. I let Massimo to surprise me instead with a special first course...after 15 min he appeared with maccheroni with mussels and octopus..I couldn't belive what i was seeing! I drank a local southern Italy white Wine. I didn't remember which was.
I finished my dinner with a tiramisù..no, not one of those already prepared and then stored in a refrigerator. Massimo and his crew CREATE at that moment a sensational tiramisù with a cream lemon flavoured and tipical italiani egg's biscuits.
At the end they asked me if I'd like to taste Caffè (espresso). If you are wondering why italian people love so much espresso I suggest you to take your time and go to find out where's Il Fiore is. The Great and True italian cousine with a crew coming from the center of Italy that would like to show you what's the meaning of "enjoy".
Thanks to all Il Fiore's people for the beatiful evening.
Paolo

I can't explain useing written words what you will taste in IL FIORE restaurant .
You can only know going in and trying thier great dishes .
I've been in Herrentals more than four months and I've tested each restaurant (also in the near villages) BUT NO ONE IS GOOD LIKE THIS ONE .
I'm Italian , from Ferrara , and I can say that if you want to eat the real GOOD italian food , you must eat in this restaurant.
I suggest you their great dishes of PASTA , and their Pawns or fishes , I've not tested the meat cause I'm vegetarian (but I eat fish) .

THANK YOU MASSIMO , in your restaurant seems to be at home !

Nothing else rest to say , but ... HAVE A GOOD MEAL IN "IL FIORE" !!
