Since years we are great fans of chef Johan and his lovely wife Els. Their food is super. Our son states that chef Johan deserves a billion stars for making the best pizza ever. We can say amen to that !

Eight of us booked a family lunch at La Piazza at short notice on a Saturday and we were not disappointed by our choice. Away from the bustle of the shopping district on Graaf de Smet de Naeyerlaan, the restaurant is just 3 mins walk south of the Mercator Marina. When w arrived e were given our own large table and warmly greeted by the proprietor. Although no soup was listed on the menu the proprietor kindly made up a minestrone for one of our party. After an an amuse bouche that included pickled mushrooms and crostini with tapenade we shared two portions of their fabulous Piatti Misti. This was an ample starter for 8 of us and included various Italian cured meats, artichokes, olives, stuffed peppers, fennel, mushrooms, fresh capers and other delicacies - fabulous. Four of our party had linguini alle vongole in the southern 'rosso' style with tomatoes and basil. They were a generous portion with a good flavour. I would have liked some more clams, but then again I always want more clams in this dish! One of our party was particularly happy that Orval beer was available and proceeded to enjoy a couple of them. Espressos were served with biscuits and mini-desserts all of which were eagerly consumed. Service was leisurely but professional and we spent a pleasant couple of hours over a good lunch.

The staff treated us like family and were very courteous. The owner gave us great advice on hot local spots. Their dessert wine was the best I've had. The ambiance is modern yet quiet, great place for any special occasion dinner.
