We loved what was served. A pity we had to wait so long to get these adorable dished at our table. Staff could be more attentive. It took them some time before they noticed us. Atmosphere and decoration are absolutely fabulous.

Great Italian restaurant, nice decor and great decoration! The food and personal was also really good. The price was on the high side of our budget.

Greedy restaurant doing two sittings but not seating people until 45 minutes after allotted time. No bar area and surly staff. Average food. Won't be coming back.

Everything is fantastic. Best Italian in Belgium?? Great wine, great food, great service. I have over many years seen a few restaurants world wide and I Famosi is the best Italian so far. It is probably why it is full of Italian guests every day Arne

This is one of the most frequented restaurants by a lot a of antwerpens. It has a has a lively vibe unlike most restaurants in antwerp. The service is top and very friendly. The wine selection is super along with their recommendations. The food also doesn't disappoint ever from soup/starters, mains to desert. A definite 'go-to' when in antwerp.

I travel to Antwerp from the US frequently on business and try to dine at I Famosi each time. Great food, atmosphere, and a short walk from the Hilton. I highly recommend the Carpaccio and the suggested menu. This is definitely one of my favorites. Great place to dine outside in nice weather.
