My wife, baby (with stroller), and mother-in-law were welcomed off the street with no advance notice. Food and beverage arrived quickly! Thank God; my wife is a wild bear when she is hungry. No English menu but we chose well; probably cannot go wrong here.

Very good Italian restaurant and pizzeria close to Avenue Louise. Nice pizzas made in a real oven (not electric), among the best in the city. Also a selection of Italian dishes, very well prepared. Owned by fellow Italians.

The food is great, the waiters super nice and returning guests get extra treats (drinks) on the house. Lovely to sit in the ped street and watch the world passing by.
