The food was so natural no chemicals and the taste sooooo rich. We had the scrumptious crusted pizza, antipasti, wine, osso bucco,vongole, and everything was so fresh and tasty. Luigi is the best. Only speaks French and italian.

I use to come to order the pizza and to eat home (I am lucky enough to live very close). The pizza was always perfectly cooked, the ingredients fresh and tasty. And for a very reasonable price!

We ordered pizzas and wine, everything was delicious and affordable. The pizzas were light and their sauce is great. Walkable neighborhood and street parking nearby.

On a fairly busy Saturday evening, we had two meals - one entrée (ordered as a main but came as an entrée size and price, not an excellent start) and a pizza speciale, no mushrooms. Both dishes were nice and pizza quite authentic, although it would have been preferred if the dishes had arrived simultaneously and a chilli oil without... More

The pizza is great, that is true, but when I asked for the bill, I saw 11 euros for my pizza and 4 euros for two glasses of TAP water. I asked them what this 4 euros was about, they don't speak English, I don't speak French, so difficult to communicate, and they told me it was for the tap... More

Weekend in Brussels with friends. Tried to eat here on a Saturday evening and was full up so we reserved a table for the Sunday evening. We had Pizza which was excellent as was the Lasagnes and they do a very good Tiramisu. A family run business serving freshly made food, doesn't get much better than this.

Friendly staff, quaint ambience combined with clean and simple flavors. I had the lasagna and it was very good with the sauce having a great rustic flavor. The pizzas others ordered also looked great. I'd come back again.

We stopped in for dinner last week and had two of the best pizzas we have had outside of Italy. We are pretty big pizza aficionados so this is saying a lot. Excellent, thin and crispy crust with perfectly cooked toppings. Simple interior, nothing fancy - but great pizza. While we did not have the pasta, it looked very appetizing.... More

We ate here 2 times within a month while on vacation. The owners are friendly and make good pizza. The salads were a good value. The second time we ate there they had a singer/saxophone/DJ with pizza being the only option. It was a packed house with good entertainment. We certainly would go back if we were in Brussels.

A family feel to this pizzeria where you always get a delightful welcome from the staff. A proper oven turns out proper pizza. Nothing exceptional here but for very satisfying, good sized and generously topped pizza. Prices are correct and the rest the menu deserves a positive mention. The pasta, meats or their great minestrone have never disappointed. This restaurant... More
