    The atmosphere was great! The food was excellent, accompanied with great wine. And the service outstanding. A welcome surprise, a small gem in the heart of Brussels ! Bravo!!

    We had hoped this restaurant would be an undiscovered gem: no website, no public menu, no wine lists... most of our foodie friends hadn’t tried it, I thought we were onto something! We had a lovely meal, but it was definitely not the taste sensation one normally expects from a tasting menu. Neither the chef nor wait staff care to present the dishes and explain what you are eating. When I asked for wine pairing, I was asked “red or white” and was brought (presumably) a glass of house wine, as there was no further discussion. The chef clearly has a lot of regular customers who he absolutely adores. We tried very hard to get in his good graces, so that we might also get oil for our bread or Parmesan for the table, as his friends did, but he didn’t really have time for us. Perfectly decent restaurant, but nothing special for those who enjoy seeking out tasting menus and up and coming chefs.

    Best Italian food I've had in Brussels, and delicious wines. A very friendly and chatty host, a welcoming atmosphere. Be sure to book in advance.

    Excellent food and great atmosphere. A birthday party for someone turning 60 added to good mood and very attentive staff, also at our table. Will be back.

    A warm welcome with a surprise menu - lunch composed of a pasta starter and main with either fish or meat. Lovely Italian home atmosphere and Italian speaking crew. Very nice wine selection

    If you’re open for the concept - no menu, the chef prepares a series of dishes after inquiering your allergies - you’re sure to pass a good time, with authentic italian food, wine and mood. Service is diligent and charming. Enjoy!
