HIM used to have a Sunday tradition… going to the movies either proceeded or followed by a trip to his favourite Pizza restaurant – Pizza Pronto.
So on our second or third date – that is exactly what we did… we went into town for a movie and a visit to this little gem of a restaurant!
Just around the corner from Niewstraat (Rue Neuve) and Anspachlaan – and approximately a stones through from both the Metro de Brouckere and the Metro Bourse… you would think that it would just be another tourist trap – with mediocre service and food… but NO… it is a GEM!!!
Wonderful service – in fact, the waitress recognized us and even noticed that I had changed my hairstyle (and colour) from a previous visit… The food is DELICIOUS… the pizza’s are absolutely homemade… from the tasty base to the sauce and finally the toppings are fresh and more-ish! You can watch the chef make your pizza and cook it in front of your eyes in their wood fired oven!
HIM got the Pizza Rustica – artichokes, tuna, onions and mushrooms
While I had the Primavera – mushrooms and ham (essentially what I would call a Regina)… but to be honest – this is the best version I have ever had…and am sure that there is some secret in their ham… or sauce… or cheese …. or base… oh hell… it is just GOOD!
Definitely a spot that will become a local hangout… and I intend becoming a regular… especially at those prices and the amazing taste…. YUM
