Probably the best place to eat all over Europe! And believe me, I have been all over Europe.... I found this restaurant, 20 years ago, and I'm still returning on a regular base! Extremely friendly, best food ever, a lot of suggestions, but my preferred dish is and remains the sea food pizza! Prices are extremely democratic!

This is a must visit restaurant for me when I am in Brussels. It is about 10 minutes walk from the Gare du Midi. The food has always been wonderful and this visit was no different. We shared various appetizers and then we both had fish.

We went to I Panciuti based on Tripadvisor reviews and its location close to the hotel. From the outside the restaurant doesn't look like much. The food was, however, quite excellent. The selections in the menu were pretty standard Italian dishes, nothing fancy. We ordered antipasto mixto, spaghetti a la bolognaise and escalope milanaise. Let's just say that we ate... More

I ordered the Scampi pizza: Dough- thin crust, very flavourful tomato bases - Yummy, absolultly fab Moz Cheese - tasty, but was swimming in lots of oil - not sure if chef topped it off with Olive oil, but to much for my liking Prawns - Mid size prawns,...

We were a group of 11 guys who only spoke English. The staff did not speak English, however this is the kind of local restaurant you want to be in, away from the main streets. We managed to translate the menu and communicate with the friendly staff some how. Food was fresh and very tasty. The restaurant was busy on... More

If you don't know the place, you'd be walking or driving right past it. From the outside it just looks like what their sign advertises: pizzeria. However, while being in a relatively low end neighborhood, this is one of the best Italian restaurant in Brussels. Authentic Italian cuisine with very creative suggestions that include, fresh pasta, fish or meat. There... More

We shared a pizza which was enough for two. Pizza was tasty and plenty. Other meals we saw also looked good servings. Service was excellent with waiters very attentive to your needs. Good value for the price

I Panciuti ('The Big Bellied') stands high over most 'IT' places in a town where everyone believes they know a 'real IT eatery', until they visit ITALY and realize they have been eating surrogate food. The menu includes IT classics and a few BE meat and fish entries. If you ask for pasta, insist you want it al dente. Whatever... More

I consider myself somewhat of a regular, after living around the corner to them for almost 5 years. I feel like most of their patrons are regulars. That being said, me, and countless of others with me, keep going back for the amazing service, warm welcome and nice people. The food is awesome value for money. The specials that are... More
