I went there because it was close to my hotel and because I wanted to have pizza. The restaurant is nice with a wide window to the street. This time, I ordered the Vecchio Mulino pizza (the pizza of the house with a lot of ingredients) and a pint of with beer. Both the beer and the pizza were very... More

Yet another false Italian restaurant. The "Italian" dishes have little to do with the real Italian cuisine. The pizza is average. They charge you as much as they can if you dare to modify a pizza. They dare to ask 5 euros for a small water bottle ... more than the beer. The interiors are old and sad. Altogether a... More

Took 2 hours to get two simple dishes. Waiters and owner rude. Waited forever and had to ask for food several times. Same with bill... Ravioli was nice but carpaccio (fish) was warm... Never again

Are you missing Italy? If you are hanging out around Metro Louise il Vecchio Mulino is the place to be in order to taste an Italian pizza. It is cheap (for Brussels standards) and good. Plus, it is Italian service.

Friends picked this restaurant as it's Italian and they've been many times. We anticipated a good meal ... were rewarded perfectly. We opened with Prosecco, then plates of buscetta and other early dishes, including meats, scampi etc. We finished up with a fresh white fish dish that was delicious. Presentations and service, included several visits from the owner/chef to see... More

I have been twice in this restaurant, to test both the 'regular' dishes and the Pizza. The dishes are very good (i had spaghetti napoletana and then sole muniere as the main corse with a mixed salad) and in large quantity - as in the old Italian trattorie. Pizza is good as well - even if the one I ordered... More

My wife and I shared a pizza and a veal dish. Both were very good. She had wine and i had a beer. Our dinner came to under 35 Euro, definitely great value for the quality of food and the atmosphere. I would go back for sure. I was quite busy and after we had finished eating we didn't see... More

In this restaurant, you meet the italian spirit. This restaurant shows that Italian food is not only pizza and pasta. You can enjoy excellent ways of cooking meat and fish.
