We have been here several times and we keep coming back so this is the best sign. The menu is not elaborate but the food is succulent and fresh. Always there is this bruschetta with fresh tomato and good olive oil as an appetizer from the house, great! The staff is warm and friendly and gives the best of advice... More

Got a table right next to the roaring fireplace in this busy little italian spot which was lovely on a cold evening. Food was good and service was decent.

We loved this place so much. The food, the ambiance, the service, everything was excellent. The ravioli i had were by far the best I've ever tasted. Everybody on our table were happy with their food and we also enjoyed the wine.

We have been here on several occasions and always come back again. I think it is clear this is a very nice, cosy and warm restaurant. The staff is passionate about their job, making you feel very welcome. Always a bruschetta with fresh tomatoes and olive oil, such a delightful little offer of the house. These little things make this... More

We had a group business meal for nine people. One of the group knew the chef so he decided what we were going to have. We had multiple courses including a wide range of food. Good wine was served although I am not knowledgable enough to really comment on it. The service was very good. The building had character and... More

Decided to have supper at La Caneva after a busy day of sightseeing in Brussels. The restaurant is close to the Grand Place and we were able to eat outside. We shared a 1/2 litre of house wine (9 euro), I had the linguini with scampi (16 euro) which were excellent and my partner had the lasagna (15 euro) which... More

Ruggiero is a great host and he likes to talk (a lot) to his guests. This Italian restaurant is very good if you want to taste the cuisine from the North in particular from the Venetian Region. Try the bigoli!

Small cosy restaurant, I advise to reserve if you want a table Service is fluid, but understand they don't always have time to chat The food is excellent, and we have tried different meals over several visits Count around 37 euros for a very good bottle of Italian wine, which is correct
