Da Passano: “Great place for drinks!”

I only went here for drinks, so I can’t comment on the food.

Da Passano sure is a trendy place. When we stumbled in for after meal drinks, it was hard to find a table for two. The waitress offered us a place at the bar, which we kindly took. Seeing the waiters at work was truly impressive. Both of them worked very hard and were clearly a well oiled machine. We never had a dull moment observing all the work they were doing.

We asked for the cocktail of the day. The waiter proposed us a tequila sunrise. We didn’t say no to that. The cocktail was excellent with a generous serving of tequila. Really good. Afterwards I ordered me some muscat petillant and my boyfriend enjoyed a glass of cognac.

Would love to go back for drinks or dinner in the future.

Easy Tempo: “Decent Italian food in the Brussels neighbourhood ‘de marollen’”

We made a reservation for a group of eight people and were offered two possibilities for seating. We preferred sitting nearby the large counter. The vibe this restaurant gives off is authentic Italian, but the service could be more attentive. For instance they forgot to fill our glasses. Since the wine bottle stood on the counter one of my table mates got up to fetch it. While she was pouring us the wine, the waiter came by and yanked the bottle out of her hands. Quite rude.

My spaghetti alle vongole was not bad, but by no means impressive. I counted only eleven clams and since those clams the reason to order this dish I was disappointed. Food was not expensive though. Drinks included we paid about 22 euro per person.
