Had the La Brace, a juicy pizza with lots of taste and no fat covering the plate. Deliciouse all the way through. The service lacked speed though which made the evening not a 5 star. Price was abit on the steep end but not by much in my opinion. Will go back when in Brussels.

this is a great Italian trattoria in the Barlaymont area, its always busy so you may have to wait to get a table but its really worthwhile, I always end up here because the pizzas from their wood oven are excellent and worth waiting for. There is a huge range to chose from but the crust on the pizza is... More

Good atmosphere, bemused by others comments on space as we had plenty, in fact more that a typical Italian restaurant. Good service, although the staff were struggling to cope with service on a Saturday night in April so you did have to make strong efforts to get attention. As we needed a quick dinner we ordered 2 pizza and a... More

Had a pizza for dinner. Quattro formaggi was delicious, the service was ok, the prices were quite nice, but the place was very cramped.

Nice atmosphere, very typical decor and homy feeling for an efficient and traditional pizzeria place, with good/average pizzas, consistent and sure value for money but nothing outstanding.

Great ambiance - attentive Italian (mostly) waiting staff and in the evening there is a group playing soft guitar music. Big menu with lots of choice. Pasta was nice and pizza was tasty if a little too soft in the middle. One of the nicest places for a friendly dinner near Schuman.

La Brace has been here for years. Deco has not changed. And wifi has not reached the establishment. Very busy on a work day but staff and kitchen efficiency results in little waiting. Pizza ok. Pasta ok. TIramisu good.

The Schuman (european union) neighborhood is well known for its terrible and expensive restaurants, a shame to give to foreigners this terrible image for a city that offers exactly the contrary: sheep and good food. Brace is not in this case , pizza looked excellent (i don't like it) and my plate ( foie veneziana) was ok. Terrible fault though:... More
