We ate at the restaurant (you can also buy fresh pasta from the counter for reheating at home). We ordered bruschetta (tomato-basil, the classic) to start and the vegetarian selection of 3 pastas as a main. All dishes clearly had very fresh ingredients. I especially...More

The Ravioli con funghi was to die for and my friend bragged about her lasagna Della case (with lam and peppers). Definitely a place to enjoy your Italian food, as you can also buy take away. The interior is very sober: white walls and basic...More

We got a mix of 5 sorts of overcooked pasta drained in cream. Too much and too expensive (€20 pp). This food has nothing to do with the Italian kitchen where simplicity rules. Average house wine

The food is good, the tiramisu is great! Nice atmosphere with very friendly staff. Maybe a bit overpriced, but still worth a regular visit!

A cosy place to have some very honest italian food. Good ingredients. Well prepared. We also noted (downstairs) it is a traiteur (fresh prepared italian take away food). Upstairs a a small restaurant with only a few tables. Nice location (in the center of leuven,...More
