This is my second visit to the restaurant. I went there first time in May 2016 and was very impressed by the food. But this time was an disappointment. The waiters were snobbish and refused to give an empty table I requested, even though it was 9 PM Wednesday. The service was very slow for a not very crowded restaurant.... More

Used to be one of the better Italian restaurants in Antwerp. Now the food is at best average. Further more we had to wait for over an hour for three fairly basic dishes. Attempts to inquire received the cold shoulder. Will not visit this restaurant again.

Service slow & awkward. Food not as expected: seared tuna with avocado tartare not seared, but limp, thick slices of tuna carpaccio dripping in olive oil; croquettes of mussels very mushy instead of crispy; tagliatelle with mushrooms & truffle: first received capellini with sauce & some truffle shavings, without any mushrooms; after pointing out the absence of the promised mushrooms,...

Unfortunately our dishes were totally not to our expectations. Too small portions for a too high price and waiting a long time for our apetizers. Water bottles had to be asked repetitively. The ingredients on our dish were not enough represented. Pasta with it's leeking water underneath it. When they asked if we enjoyed we told them the thruth...they answered... More

We just had lunch at I Famosi. We were nearly the only ones in the restaurant. The suggestion we chose was not available, seems more like a place focused on dinner rather than lunch. Praces were normal, platters were not stunning. The porc cheecs were just splashed on the dish with only a dot of potaties and some veggies. Nouvelle... More

For business I stayed in Antwerp. I was invited to this place by local people who live just around the corner. They use to come here quite often. The place was crowded but not completely full. The personnel is friendly but not really involved. At least it does not show. The wine list is pretty complete and the Vermentino I... More

The food here is very good! Amazing, considering the many options the menu card is offering. The setting inside however was not to my liking: very crowded, the tables were squeezed too close to each other and what bothered me the most was the very noisy setting; it was very hard just to understand the guests at my table. So... More
