This review doesn't require a lot if poetry, as you can read the many positive reviews you can book a table your eyes closed! My experience: cosy, quality food, good service, and not too expensive. Perfect For a tête à tête or a diner with friends or alone, you'll feel very relaxed!!! :)

Great Italian dinner in Ixelles, surprised by delightful food in a small cozy restaurant. Excellent tasty pasta and perfect Italian dessert. Good wine list and kind warm service. Nice surprise.

One immediately feels welcome at la creche des artistes as the waiter poors you a glass of proseco and an antipasto on the house. The menu changes constantly according to the fresh produces that are available. The food is really tasty and served in generous portions. The wine menu offers a large selection of italian poisons, I recommend the Barberra... More

It's the story of a chance Monday business lunch. Nothing in the area would suggest what a nice place this is. Dodgy, shabby buildings all around, even the façade of the restaurant itself is extremely modest. Yet once inside the tiny - and only - main room, the magic kicks in. The menu is up on the wall, not more... More

Went on a Thursday evening and met with a full house. Very pleasant interior, knowledgeable staff. My very best Italian restaurant ever. Others simply pale compared to the delicious tastes Dino and his team serve. Very good Italian wines. Very convenient parking building across the street, you even get a ticket for it from Dino. Wick more do you want?

We went here for a bite before a show at nearby Tour & Taxis. The welcoming by the hostess is very warm. You're immediately offered a glass of prosecco and something to nibble. The menu is limited but the prices are very reasonable. The quality of the food is excellent and the portions are decent. On top of the excellent... More

This restaurant is on it's own in a residential area and has lots of atmosphere. There are 2 dining areas, one on the ground floor and the other in the cellar with relatively high vaulted brick ceilings, which is where we ate. As soon as we were seated we were served with glass of Prosecco and amuse bouche; both compliments... More

Great food made with the best ingredients. No extensive menu with 20 pasta/pizza/escaloppe dishes to choose from but a small menu with freshly prepared dishes that bring me back to holidays in Italy! Very cosy and perfect for romantic dinners.

Not very exciting food for what you pay way too much. Atmosphere OK, service with room for improvement. Not to recommend

Probably the worse service ever, not only in Brussels but worldwide. Impression is that you're not really needed and welcome here. You ask for bread, you won't get it at all. You ask for water, well then you ask again. Then you ask for dessert. In the meantime, they throw your glass of wine on your pants and they won't... More
