Ideal place to have a quick lunch with colleagues. The pasta is really great, but be warned, the pasta is not Italian at all. Most pasta’s are served quite heavy and spicy sauces. Bolognaise and Savoyard are personal favorites. If you can’t choose, you can try the trio. The pasta is cheap and well worth the money. I always go for the normal portion, which I personally find quite large, but my male colleagues prefer the big portion.
Service is efficient, but only speak French. Atmosphere is typically Brussels, with nice wooden panels on the walls and cute and colorful tiles on the floor, which gives it a really authentic vibe. In summer you can sit outside. The location isn’t that great as it is somewhat outside of the touristic center of Brussels. Not a typical neighbourhood to go for a meal.
Be sure to make reservations when you want to go there for a lunch, because at noon the place is full of people who want a quick lunch.
