We went here with my children & wife (Italian). In summary, I was somewhat disappointed: the pizzas (main course) were nice but the the starters and deserts are overpriced for what you get. Especially the croccantino caprese (starter - 12.50 euro) and the la palla di bufala (desert) were far below expectations. The Brusschette (starter) were okay but it's hard... More

´Italian cuisine' is likely to be the most abused cooking style in the world. Rather than going for the impossible and (abroad) uninsteresting 'authentic' and 'real' Italian menu, Fratelli La Bufala had the merit of trying new ways, twisting and turning the classic dishes, sauces and pizza toppings. A large attention is devoted to the the namesake and apparently own-production... More

Pleasant atmosphere and service, drinks reasonably priced. A shame that there is no soup and no 'contorni' vegetable sides on the menu. My gnocchi were terrible - hard, totally tasteless. The sauce they were baked in was good though and I was hungry. The dish also didn't have basil, which was mentioned in the description. My husband's pizza was fine... More

I was unexpectedly recommended this restaurant by a friend. All Italian serving staff, the Italian lady at the welcome and the young dark haired Italian gentleman where particularly friendly. Pizza is remarkable, many different choices, pasta is excellent. Unpretentious, understated, no table linen though. By on can clearly see its run by quality food loving Italians, and that's always a... More

An excellent Neapolitan pizza, and definetely the best pizza in Brussels. A pizza that can be compared with the pizzas you get in Naples, and at the same level of the best pizzas in Italy. Wood fired oven. An excellent hot chocolate molten lava cake, with a scoop of ice cream. Reasonable prices. Italian staff. Quick service. I have been... More

I have been to this place several times but I will probably not go anymore in the future. The pizza is still quite good (and still also overpriced!) but the service is simply terrible. I went twice in June, first time I was with my family on a Tuesday and we had to wait almost an hour to have our... More

Just an ordinary evening in Ixelles. At least, that's what it looked like when we entered this restaurant around 7-ish this evening. Then it happened, what seemed to be a normal evening turned into a lively restaurant filled with cheerful Italians. The pizza seems to be the thing here, both looking at the passionate cook and the number of people... More

This is the best pizza ever. Been io Italy many times and even though this restaurant is in Brussels, it ranks pizza wise among the best. Ordered the aubergine/eggplant pizza and the aubergine/eggplant was cooked to perfection. Crust very good and overall decided yo eat half to prolong the gastronomic experience to the next day. Tiramisu for dessert was also... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Brussels. As an Italian, I am very picky about pizza. This is one of the best pizzeria that I have ever been to outside Italy. The dough is fantastic. Most clients are Italian, which is always a good sign :-) I always order the same thing and it never disappoints me: the... More

I am a regular customer at this restaurant. Both my wife and I love everything about it! The service is good, atmosphere is authentic, the prices are in line with competition, and the quality of the food is very high. I am Italian (born in Napoli) and I can say without a doubt that the pizza they serve here is... More
