Excellent, authentic italian resto for going out with friends or family. Make sure to get the pizza - it's the best you can have and it will make you think of Napoli... Generous portions and relaxed atmosphere. Make sure to book before you go, it...More

We went here with my children & wife (Italian). In summary, I was somewhat disappointed: the pizzas (main course) were nice but the the starters and deserts are overpriced for what you get. Especially the croccantino caprese (starter - 12.50 euro) and the la palla...More

´Italian cuisine' is likely to be the most abused cooking style in the world. Rather than going for the impossible and (abroad) uninsteresting 'authentic' and 'real' Italian menu, Fratelli La Bufala had the merit of trying new ways, twisting and turning the classic dishes, sauces...More

I have been to this place several times but I will probably not go anymore in the future. The pizza is still quite good (and still also overpriced!) but the service is simply terrible. I went twice in June, first time I was with my...More

Just an ordinary evening in Ixelles. At least, that's what it looked like when we entered this restaurant around 7-ish this evening. Then it happened, what seemed to be a normal evening turned into a lively restaurant filled with cheerful Italians. The pizza seems to...More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Brussels. As an Italian, I am very picky about pizza. This is one of the best pizzeria that I have ever been to outside Italy. The dough is fantastic. Most clients are Italian, which is always a...More
