Enjoyed dinner in this lovely resto, and sat next to the huge wood fire oven which brings excellent ambiance. Nice place good food and very friendly owner. We had a pre-set €30 menu consisting of glass of Prosecco and antipasto of shrimps panée & parmesan, good but maybe some sauce can do better. Then Primo: Bruschetta truffles(excellent), Secondo: linguini truffles(simple... More

Restaurant and pizzeria Lionelo is a simple and busy neighbourhood restaurant. On the evening we had dinner here, most of the clients seemed to be regulars who were greeted like old friends. In fact, the enthusiasm for the place is such that at least four people reviewed Lionelo twice on Tripadvisor. A man, probably the owner, took our orders but... More

As the restaurant is around my corner, I have been there more than once and I am always glad there. But tonight the owner offered me a pasta with lobster and it was simply amazing. The service it so attentive and so welcoming!

This is a great spot. Always busy and clearly very popular with the local Italian community-always a good sign. Family run...good food and service. Recommended. They do take-away as well.

I am Italian (living in bxl) so I feel allowed to "judge" italian food served abroad. Well, in this restaurant you can really eat a 100% italian meal. Pizza are delicious and pasta equally great. Ask the owner to tell you what they have besides what is in the menu. You'll find gems...for instance we had "fiori di zucca" (which... More

In addition, the staff was very helpful: we explained that we were in a rush and our pizza and lasagna were served... More
