From a quality and originality point of view, this truly is a precious slow food restaurant. Chef Felice and his team prepare tasteful and authentic dishes. Staff is very friendly. Nice wine selection too. Frome a price/quality point of view, i was slightly disappointed: 89€ pp allin really is the absolute max I want to pay for this type of... More

A rainy evening in Leuven: The Rossi is a typical italian restaurant with a friendly staff and a competent chef: the menu was very typical but honnest and delicious. The wine list is well adjusted and prices are justified. A very pleasant and authentic experience

Nice Italian interior with very friendly but disorganised staff. Quite noisy too which made it hard to understand each other. In the weekend, there is only one (3 or 5 course) menu with the cheapest at 45 euro. One would expect top dishes for this price but despite the sometimes very special ingredients, all dishes tasted a bit dull and... More

My colleagues had already departed so I had a solo meal outside. They were busy but was accommodated and had a nice flight of red wines with antipasto and lobster... More

Ambiance is simple but the food is superlative! Delicate tastes and some surprises in the ingredients/the way food was prepared. Waiter and cook... More

We were the first to arrive and the service was very attentive at this point, however as the restaurant filled up it became slower and slower. We received our starter very quickly but then waited a very very long time for our next courses, not understanding why tables around us received their mains way before us when they had arrived...
