I went with my wife on a friday evening with moderate expectations. The restaurant is on a very busy road and at first glance the front looked a bit uninviting. This was because the heavy front door and thick windows were meant to isolate the...More

I was there with friends. The carte is not very tempting, as you can find a lot of very classic italian dishes, nothing with a twist. But everything was well cooked. Portions are sometimes ridiculously small (5 paccheri for 35€!). The place is oldfashion. Service...More

We have been to San Daniele the past 10 years and continue to rate this among our favorites in Brussels. Super service, classic dishes prepared with care, love and refinement. Italian quality with local flair. Cannot go wrong with this one!

Not sure it is correct to judge a restaurant based on the food served on the "famous" Resto days but I will try to be as honest as possible. We had lunch and everyone gets the same menu, you can't chose your food. The staff...More

San Daniele is located in Ganshoren, in the proximity of the Koekelberg Basilica. From the outside, the restaurant looks nothing special, and unfortunately, the same feeling prevails when entering the restaurant. It's a refurbished home, with design touches from the late 90's. Nothing new, nothing...More

Five hundred euros for 2 aperitifs, two 0.5l bottles of water, 4 starters, 4 main dishes. and 8 glasses of wine! Admittedly we chose dishes with truffles, but nevertheless, this was bordering on daylight robbery. The room was on the chilly side for the first...More

In this way the "San Daniele" Family wishes to underline the respect for the purest Italian culinary traditions that make its reputation. One son in the kitchen, one son in the cellar and the father in the dining room. This could be the simplistic picture of this transalpine establishment, nestled behind Koekelberg Cathedral. The simply elegant decor has been attractively updated, which only adds to the warm atmosphere of the restaurant, which has long held a place at the summit of Italian fine-dining. The chef uses high quality products in his dishes, which perpetuate the great Italian tradition, although French extravagancies are sometimes on the menu. Italian vintages have pride of place in the wine cellar. The Restaurant San Daniele, places at your disposal, its lounge and private dining room (to the 1st floor), adaptable to your needs. Perfect for all your private meals or business meetings. Available for 2 to 12 people., In complete tranquility. Discretion guaranteed. Information and booking by phone only
