I'm very surprised at reading some of the reviews for the restaurant. I went here twice on my stay in Brussels and was 100% satisfied. The first time I visited as a recommendation from my hotel. Although it is in a very touristy area, don't let looks fool you. When I got there, I was treated so well, almost like... More

Get away from there!!! It is a tourist trap!!! The food is just terrible, it supposed to be an Italian restaurant but I ordered a pizza that the crust was burned, they have people outside that bring you in offering "good prices" that supposed to come with a drink, but once you sit there they will offer you other menus...

This place is a definite hit - so much so that we went back for more on our second night in town. The weather allowed us to sit al freso, watch the passing parade, and soak-up the... More

Situated on a busy and heavily tourist orientated street in Brussels it would be easy to walk past this place or even dismiss it off the bat but once inside it is friendly and welcoming with delicious food. We were coaxed in by the front of house man who some may consider pushy but I had to admire his hustle.... More

Against my better judgement I agreed to eat here as our party were tired and hungry. Very pushy staff made the whole experience a real pain. Would not advise anyone to eat here.

I was searching for Waterzooi, a local Belgium dish. The restaurants in St Catherine's Sq were closed at around 3 pm. So I was glad I managed to find this just before I left Brussels. The dish was good and it includes a glass of wine. :) Some of the other restaurants I tried were more costly and the soup... More

Service was good, price was very reasonable 40 euros for 2 people (2 mains, side, mussels for a starter and 3 glasses of wine) and the food was nice, I would recommend to people on a budget in brussels.

The menu is heavy on the Italian selection, but the food was good, not too expensive, and the service quick. I do not regret eating here.
