This restaurant is one of the best in Brussels it offers very tasty pizza and good house wine. The prices are very reasonable. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for good quality food in good pricing.

My friend and I from Calif. ate at this family owned restaurant last night and what a nice experience. The staff was hospitable and the atmosphere was fun and welcoming. We met the whole family and tried the pizza parma ham and spaghetti carbonara. Excellent choices. We will be back for more.

Welcoming staff. Friendly owner. Tasty food, belgian beer :) and quite reasonable prices. So,... More

We went to this place because i looked outside to the offers and there was a good one with Paella + beer for 15€. Good, so inside I asked for that and the waiter "suggested" me not to order that, because it wasn't real Paella but just rice with saffron and pescado. Even if I thought to escape from the... More

The quality of the food (esp Tagliatelle al Salmone, Pizza Margherita, Maccheroni 4 Formaggi -my boys 7 and 9 years old loved it and Filet de Porc... More

Nice staff, good food, value for money. We ate there twice - and appreciated it. Several dishes are gluten free, they even take care for gluten free bread. Vegan dishes are provided as well,

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...

There's no shortage of choice for eateries in Rue Gretry, and for a tourist on a balmy summer evening, it can be hit-and-miss. 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
