Loved the cosy little athmosphere of this place. Went there during the summer, sat outside, on the street litteraly. Service was good, friendly guy, but his French/Dutch/English was really poor, so it’s hard to communicate... Selection is well chosen, nothing to rare, but OK. Food was nice, but I expected more... was a little disappointed. Value is OK. Will go back one day to see how this place has evolved.

Un nouveau restaurant pour beergeek à Bruxelles. Ils augmentent et on attendait que ça. Cuisine dont tous les produits sont importés d’Italie, en ne passant jamais par les marques industrielles. Beaucoup de pâtes fraîches aux oeufs, fromages et lardons. Il y a un choix végétarien et au pire, on peut toujours s’arranger avec le chef, jamais contre ses petites envies du moment.
Un rare cuisto qui vit pour le goût de ses plats. Parlez-lui de bière (italienne ou belge, il connaît tout) 1min et passionné, il démarre au quart de tour. Des organisations d’invitation de brasseurs au restaurant pour présenter les produits (White Pony Microbrewery est passé il y a peu). Les bières italiennes, peu nombreuses mais dont le Cuisto exige un prix très bas, tournent bien et il faut donc y revenir selon les arrivages.
Service de midi & soir uniquement. Prix très démocratiques, surtout quand on voit la qualité et originalité des matières premières. Très heureux d’y avoir franchi un jour la porte, c’était sans aucun doute le bon choix. Merci Valerio!

Small cosy restaurant in a beautiful street in Brussels. Very friendly and knowlegdeable staff. Fresh and delicous food. Very good suggestions. Small but very well chosen beer list. Focus on Italian craft beer. Staff knows which beer to pair with the food. Very nice place!

This place was amazing! Big thanks to Seb for bringing me here on during my trip to Brussels. The chef whipped up a special appetizer of deep fried cauliflower that in the breading included S04 dry yeast - one of my favorites for home brewing! The chef then went on to create for us a special dish not on the menu that used some Cantillon lambic in the sauce, really excellent pasta, some fine cheeses and beef cheek. The chef worked his magic on a tiny stove in the back. The ambiance is really cool - maybe only 10 or 12 seats in the entire place. Nice selection of beers. Oh and be sure to get the ’Beerimisu’ it was a great way to finish the dinner. One of the best meals I’ve ever had, easily.

Had been wanting to visit this one for a while, and boy was it a pleasant surprise especially after their outstanding Zwanze day pasta. Friendly service in full Italian fashion with Valerio, the owner, working the kitchen, even made a lunch with a twist after asking me what I enjoyed eating.
This is more of a bistro-restaurant meets a pub and a deli.
I would not call it low budget. Some of the pasta dishes run an easy 14€, but damn you can tell this is home made with all the Italian love. However, the hearty pannini bread is big enough and cheap around 4€50.
Beer selection is nice, although a bit limited. They offer some unique Italian craft that I have not seen elsewhere in Belgium plus some of the usual Belgian suspects; Cantillon and DLS.
A nice offering of Roman cuisine in Brussels.

Very nice Italian low budget restaurant. A nice selection of antipasti, pasta & most importantly Italian beers! The guys know their food & beers and are very keen to propose the right beer to your taste. We had some birra artigianale and tasted some stuff that wasn’t on the menu.. Instead of going in for a quick bite and a beer, we stayed for a couple of hours talking about beer & food. We felt very welcome and the bill was very reasonable for the served food and improted beers. Can’t wait to go back to discover other tastes, more imported Italian products and go home wihth a satisfied feeling. Go Tana!

A little corner of Rome with excellent food and interesting variety of artisanal Italian beers. Italian cuisine but also recipes with beer, excellent "tiramisù" with stout!

Here you can taste some really good Italian appetizers and pasta dishes. Everything is accompanied by a good selection of excellent Italian craft beers, together with some beers brewed in Brussels. Some dishes are prepared with beer and they taste extremely good. If you speak with the owner you’ll discover an authentic beer lover that will give you dozens of hints and suggestions about the beers he’s serving. If you are in Brussels and you would like to discover the world of Italian craft beers you should definitely come here.
