Fresh and tasty pastas. Always clever suggestions on the board, but don't forget about the staples on menu (the Ragu is as it should be) Friendly and professional staff. Reservation s are required when you're in a big group, but tables for two usually work for walk-ins.

Visited this place after recommendation of friends. Very friendly staff, great location with nice decorative touches. Staff made an extra effort to serve us a seat for a quick bite although they were fully booked. Loved the tortellini! Definitely returning for the full treat! :)

Since they moved to this place you have to make reservations to get in. Always crowded...so it must be good. And it was. We went very early without reservation and were lucky to have a table. The menu is OK, A lot of choice. Simple food , but delicious. Prises are OK. Staff is friendly and the public is overall... More

De nieuwe locatie is hip en trendy met een knap interieur. Aangename sfeer en prima bediening. Great food & drinks. Honest food en not to expensive. Been there over +20 times, always happy when I leave. Do I need to say more? Tip: try the pasta meatballs.

My daughter who lives in Hasselt took us there for dinner. We had a good meal reasonably priced. It is a small establishment where reservations are recommended but not required. I totally agree with Erwin, Frederik, and Lionel comments.

Good value for money! Nice Italian dishes and lots of choice. Do make a reservation during the weekend. We went early on a Saturday evening and were the first customers, when we left the place was completely full.

I've eaten at Poccomato dozens of times between 1996 and now - and have never been disappointed. Good honest pasta dishes at reasonable prices - nothing more and nothing less.
