We were a table of 12 and had a reservation. The restaurant is very conveniently located within a short walking distance from the European facilities. I had been on Rue Archimede before and had never noticed this restaurant. It doesn't look necessarily like a restaurant from outside, because it is built in one of the many townhouses on the street.... More

Arriving in Brussels from the airport is still a little fraught. Since the airport bus follows a diverted route, I found myself at the opposite end of Rue Archimede. Trying to order a meal in the Schuman area at close to 22.00 hours is not easy. In Dal Padrino I found I was welcomed in to dine with lingering guests... More

This is our go-to restaurant when we stay in Brussels: the food is simply the best, with generous portions, fresh ingredients and home-made everything, there's nothing negative we could say about this restaurant! The house red wine (Tartufo Nero) is very good and smooth and goes well with the meat dishes on the seasonally changing menu. There's also a set... More

When you enter you have to climb stairs up to the first floor level, almost like entering a private home. And the feeling continues once you are inside. The friendly waiter, also being the owner (?) welcomed us and showed us to the table. The menu contains all the classical Italian dishes you may want. We went straight on to... More

As I work in the EU quarter, I frequently go to Dal Padrino's for business lunches. I have been quite disappointed with Italian restaurants in the area, but Dal Padrino's is by far the best and the only one I'll go to during the week. The food is consistently authentic and fresh. The service is one of the best in... More

We went there for lunch while all the other surrounding places were full. All tables in the garden were taken so we hat to make do with the interior.

friendly, attentive, interesting menu but a bit pricey (- actually it was a bit of a shock). It's very easy to spend 70Euros + here per person and not know it. but to be honest I did enjoy the food. loved the pasta tagliatelle in cream and truffle sauce in a parmesan basket...shame I was over charged for it ......
