Nice atmosphere, a bit expensive (as everything in BRU), nice Italian recipes and good house wine. Good for dinner.

Absolutely appalling - we had to send back 3 (THREE!!!) bottles of wine as they were undrinkable - and looked/smelled undrinkable - they should never have been served in the first place - then when the food arrived it was cold - so we sent that back too - so they microwaved it and gave it back to us -...

This resto has a good chance of winning an award - "the worst pizza in town"... A "prestigious" pizza from their menu was distinguished by a lack of taste, suspicious freshness of ingredients, tiny size and a comparatively high price for what it was... I would definitely not recommend this restaurant.

Food was ok, but the service was really bad. The picture on the website doesn't correspond at all at the restaurant. Furthermore they didn't accept cents as payme (the bill was XX.50), which I'm not sure is strictly legal.

But the service is really terrible. In particular there is a black hair waitress who is awful. There are many other good reastaurants near Schuman, so... More

The owner was not in the least apologetic and said if we wanted 2 euros back...I suppose that... More

Very good, authentic pizza in a very pleasant setting. Good location right next to the European Commission. Service was a bit slow at times.

We ate here on a Saturday night in February and it was quite quiet but the food was really tasty. We had a toddler with us and not only did they make something off-menu for him, the brought it before our meals - a parents delight! Pizza was very light, freshly cooked in a wood oven and the pasta was... More

Italian restaurant in the Schuman EU area. Good food and wines, a bit pricey.
