It’s the good life at Via Balbi. At the Porte de Namur right near the center of Brussels sits this little restaurant, ready to amaze you with their regional Italian cuisine…
Via Balbi welcome you to their bright space, wood tables and cool brick walls. It’s a pleasant place to grab a bite of some Italian specialties. Whether you are eating in or taking away, Via Balbi offers quality food, typical of the Liguria region. From the homemade salad, to the coffee corner feel, to the pastas and quiches, this place is between a bar and a restaurant and is perfect to satisfy your hunger and to share a moment with friends.
Liguria is the focus. Via Balbi champions their regional traditions and culinary specialties. One way or another, everything here has a connection to this northern region of the Boot that goes along the French border to La Spezia. When we think of Liguria, pesto Genovese, torta della nonna (Grandmother’s tart), and focaccia comes to mind.
And in a region where the land is bathed by the sun, the vegetables are full of flavor. Via Balbi honors them in their many vegetarian dishes.
Via Balbi, a voyage on flavor road
Via Balbi also offers free wifi for customers, ideal for a lunch, breakfast, or an afternoon coffee to work on your laptop. The restaurant offers after-work drinks everyday from 6 to 8 pm where everywhere can meet up inside or on the terrace. A nice glass of wine to end the work day with some yummy Italian snacks like focaccia, stuffed vegetables, or quiches… delicious.
If the food selection has pulled you in, don’t hesitate to take some home with you! Via Balbi is the Brussels correspondent for producers in Liguria: wines, olive oil, tuna, anchovies, honey, pesto, jams…
