    The ingredients were fresh and tasty. It was the best seafood dish I've ever had in Leuven. However, all my company including me felt all plates of pasta and risottos were too salty.

    We had to wait, wait and wait...... first for some bread... then again a long time for the olive oil for the bread; then despite asking multiple times for the water; then for being able to order; and finally the food itself took pretty long .... food was OK especially considering the 30% discount we got via the Fork; though we had to ask for that when they presented the bid .... You can imagine they didn’t get a tip

    I loved the place, the food, the staff! We really had a great time, and we were brought back to the italian spirit and tastes! The waiter is multilingual and very joyful! I'd definitely go back!

    Overpriced dishes of mediocre quality. Pasta was overcooked. Portions are too big to enjoy, we felt stuffed in the end. We won’t return for sure

    Pastas and Primi Piati were delicious, but the main (Carne) weren’t as good for the price. The fish looked better. We will definitely be back to try the risottos...

    The ravioli with Lobster looks as fancy as it is tasty. It was just so nice! Our Hugo cocktail was really good and there was friendly service. I have been here once begore and had the same good experience :D

    One of the best Italian food I have ever eaten in Belgium. The neighborhood is lively for a nice evening.

    It was a great experience. My family and I visited Leuven on vacation, this was our first restaurant in Leuven. They offered authentic Itallian cuisines. I loved the pasta, the grilled seafood. More agreeably, the waiters and waitress were hospitable and amicable. I will definitely come again the next time I visit Leuven.

    Great pasta and fresh squid. We loved the different seafood pasta options, in particular the strozzapreti with mint and shrimps. The battered squid was light and crisp. Good food and friendly staff!

    Quite expensive but very basic food. Had to wait a very long time for simple to prepare meals. You will be better off buying a spaghetti at the Barber.
