We found this restaurant by chance on our first night in Bruges. We loved its casual and friendly atmosphere along with its unpretentious Italian food. When looking again for a restaurant on our 2nd night we could not resist going again ! The bolognaise sauce was fantastic. We would probably have gone again on our 3rd and final night in... More

Had lunch here today with the 14 euro set lunch meal. Minestrone soup didn't look and definitely didn't taste like one. Main meal ( beef) was tasteless even after salt added. Pasta was cold and bland. Dessert plain panna cota tasted like flour that we only had 1 teaspoon of it. Overall I find food quality very poor. I gave... More

Went here for lunch when visiting Belgium for the first time and the city of Brugges. It took a while to get our food and, when it did come out, not all the plates came out at the same time. I had to wait about 5 minutes while my family started eating (I was hungry!) My husband was not asked... More

Looking for a quick lunch we thought we'd try this place as it was reasonably priced. We ordered one vegetarian and one meat canelloni. They were a long time coming and when they did, appeared to have been thrown together in a hurry with absolutely no seasoning. Both dishes were bland and not particularly pleasant to eat. We ordered coffee... More

We were looking for a decent Italian restaurant that wasn't too expensive. However, we were disappointed by this place. Not only did we have to wait a full hour for our food, even though we were first to order and it wasn't busy at all, but when it arrived it was not good and one of us got the wrong... More

Chef Mike (microwave) seemed to be in charge here, we couldn't eat more than about 3 spoonful's of the water, sorry lasagna, and were told that we could not have a bottle of Prosecco just a glass each! Naturally when we finished the glass before we even got our food we asked for more and to be fair they did... More

I visited Brugge with my family and this restaurant was the first that came across in the middle of the city. It's small nice place, the service is very friendly and we received our orders within 15 minutes. The quality of the pizza I ordered was average, it was well cooked but it seems the ingredients were chosen from the... More

Nice service, lots of vegetarian options! Some well priced options if you are on a budget - the pasta arrabiata was delicious. The pizza was okay. Worth a stop by if you are on the go.

Me, my wife and my two daughters (6 and 3). Last night in Bruges. Fancied a quick and easy dinner. This place was just around the corner from our hotel. 2 pizzas and 1 spaghetti with meatballs. Both pizzas were well over cooked. The cheese was dark and hard and the base was tough. The meatballs looked like they'd been... More
