Amazing little foodies corner in Brussels. Nice produces and lots of passion! ????????
Succulent, original et excellent accueil !! On se croirait en Italie... :-)
Excellent service and delicious food!
Great tastes, nice and funny team... no need to make 1.000 km to be in Italy...
Highly recommended. Excellent Sicilian cuisine.
Excellent food and great atmosphere. A birthday party for someone turning 60 added to good mood and very attentive staff, also at our table. Will be back.
A warm welcome with a surprise menu - lunch composed of a pasta starter and main with either fish or meat. Lovely Italian home atmosphere and Italian speaking crew. Very nice wine selection
Original recipes; nice plate decor; fresh.
Nice atmosphere and very qualitative dinner. The staff is super welcoming. Very pleasant evening at il Passatempo!
Italy in Belgium, very nice and smoody !
If you’re open for the concept - no menu, the chef prepares a series of dishes after inquiering your allergies - you’re sure to pass a good time, with authentic italian food, wine and mood. Service is diligent and charming. Enjoy!
Je le recommande sans réserves !
The food, the service are always excellent. They have a nice concept: tell them what you don't like (+allergies) and they will build a discovery menu that doesn't have anything you dislike and they will match the wine according to your dishes. The products are fresh and homemade (pasta). Real Italian quality.
Overdoing it and failing. That would probably summarise it. "surprise" set menu only, you can choose fish or meat and let them know if you have any allergies. I'm not too keen on the concept but I played along. The problem is, they want to do too many things, 1 amuse bouche followed by 4 small entrée and none of them are actually good. They are average, bland. These are cold, pre prepared dishes which I am sure they made on the premises but taste like they are straight out of a pack. Shrimps were dry (stayed too long in the marinade), tartare was tasteless as was the courgette & ricotta. The pasta dish was 1 big ravioli filled with cheese and "bathing" in a soupe of cheese. The ravioli pasta itself was good and home made, the sauce & filling were greasy and heavy. The only dish that brought the experience up a little was the main, pork chop. Nicely cooked if nothing special. All in all, a disappointing experience. will not repeat it.
Good food and service.
Elegant 'menu de confiance' formule for lunch with some authentic Italian tastes for a reasonable price.
