Yesterday was probably the first time that I ate in a restaurant located in Zaventem, I don't often wander in that neighbourhood. A friend recommended the place so we went with her to discover it. It’s a nice pizzeria decorated like the inside of a boat. I really didn’t expected this but it looks really nice and inviting.
The menu is full of specialities and everything seemed tasty so we’ve had a hard time picking our meals :p In the end we went for pasta, shrimps and a pizza in order to taste a bit of everything the chef could cook and I wasn’t disappointed at all! My shrimps with pesto and veggies were nicely done but not too greasy or green from the pesto, the black pasta with seafood were simply delicious with a nice balance in the tastes. The pizza was a more classical choice but hey some restaurant can mess up pizzas, not here fortunately.
Something that I like about the place is the nice atmosphere, the staff who is super friendly and everyone working at Panarea speaks Italian! It is up for debate but honestly I prefer to know that Italians are cooking in an Italian restaurant... So Panarea is a good pick! By the way, the Tiramisu isn’t bad at all!
