    We visited for a pizza, but failed to be impressed with it. The atmosphere is definitely pleasant and with a nice hipster touch. The place emphasizes the use of fresh products and I should definitely point out that the rucola, the cheese and other products really seemed fresh. The pizza, however, did not match the initial expectations. The dough was too thick, the outer side was not nicely thickened and finished, and it felt dry. I can't say that the tomato pasta was enough so our pizzas lacked the tasty "juicy" feeling. Service was relatively ok. A bit slow, done by (I assume) job-students I cannot say that it was anything special. Generally if you are in the area of South Antwerp and you are longingg for a pizza, give it a try, but lower your expectations. Then you may actually enjoy it more.

    Tried this place 3 or 4 times and everytime the same experience: tasteful pizza's, but terribly slow service. And don't get me wrong, the waitress always runs around like crazy, but she is often on her own to serve the whole restaurant so this is definitely not her fold. The owner should simply put more staff in there to guarantee a smooth service, this is not the type of restaurant where you expect to be waiting 45 to 60 minutes for a pizza. Not visiting this place anymore only because of that, which is a shame.

    For a good and affordable pizza, Bar Italia is a good choice. Located at the trendy 'Zuid' of Antwerp, it os a good place to start a night out in this great city.

    Excellent Pizza's, fresh pasta, and a bustling scene. WHenever I feel like pizza in Antwerp, there's only one option for me.

    Service is excellent : fast, efficient and friendly. I can recommend the marinated carpaccio for meat lovers. Further, all pizze are authentic and very tasteful. Definitely one of the best Italians on the South side of Antwerp. Parking is still for free between Vlaamse and Waalse Kaai (a few hundred meters from the restaurant) !

    We had a very nice cocktail (with passion fruit, prosecco and a little bit of gin) to start with and then a delicious Pizza Bar Italia! Very original, very tasteful. Really loved it. Staff is very friendly too! Location on "'t Zuid" is also nice!

    Really great restaurant. Service was excellent and the food was great. The atmosphere is really great there, for a romantic evening or for dinner with friends. The pizza was very very good and fresh, the lazagne was ok but not the best I had. But everything was fresh and overall it was a good experience. You can't leave the place before you try the Tiramisu. It is SO good! Will come back again for sure.

    I probably had one of the best pizza mozzarella ever , right here in this establishment! A bit pity that the bruschetta as starter was drowned in olive oil, an that the waitress wasn't able to give advise, because she only spoke Italian . Otherwise this might've been my 4th 5*-rating.

    We decided to stay there on the way back from the city center and we thought it would be a bit more cheaper outside the center. We were completely WRONG! As we had a look into the menu we thought:wow! We ordered a pizza quattro stagioni (15 euros) and cannelloni filled with spinach/ricotta (14 euros) and two homemade lemonades ( 3,50 euros each). Glass filled nearly to the top with icecubes! Pizza not oversized and without any spice ( they serve a herbal oil if you ask for it but they do not offer it ). Cannelloni also not oversized, taste ok. Staff very friendly. Desserts about 8 euros! ( tiramisu, mousse au chocolat, vanilla ice with chocolate sauce, tiramisu etc.)

    I have visited this restaurant a few times, and I do agree the pasta selection is rather limited, however if you are going to Bar Italia for a pizza, then you are in the right place. There are many varieties on offer and I am never disappointed. The thin base and the tomato sauce are delicious! The pizza is well cooked but not overdone which is a delight. I always try the Bellini when I am here and they are very very good. Also worth noting the Bruschetta's for starter is really really tasty, seasoned just correctly to give a lot of flavour. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    We live in the neighborhood and before the refurbishment we sometimes used to order the various pastas, which were fine. Nowadays, there is only the choice between 3 pastas and the quality got worse. No more basic dishes on the menu which gives children very little choice. Pizzas became very expensive and quite greasy. What happened to the basic and good Italian food?

    Bar Italia recently reopened after some refurbishing. I do not know whether the management has changed. It used to be a joint with a pretty varied menu, simple dishes well prepared. After the refurbishing, the menu focused more on pizza. The dishes are still pretty ok (not super but not bad) but are overpriced. We had 4 bruskettas at 12 EUR, a pizza at 15-16 EUR. Service was ok but a bit pushy commercial. As a local and a foodie, I do not think I will go here again on my own initiative - there are better alternatives at walking distance.

    We took an evening meal here on a Sunday. We were seated outside as the weather was nice. We both had Bruscetta to start with and chose a pizza from the menu. The Menu has limited choise, mainly pizza for main course. The pizza's tasted great full of flavour. Service was a bit confused and sometimes took their time.

    We went for something to eat during the early evening on a sun-drenched sunday. We were seated straight away. They have 2 extra floors for customers with a nice view of the museum and surroundings, so there's ample room. Service was fine. Not bad, but not amazing either. The waitress did make a small mistake and it resulted in an extra cost. However, it has to be noted that after discussing the problem, they changed the bill to rectify the mistake, which we really appreciated. So no complaints there at all. The food was very decent, yet somewhat overpriced for what you're getting, both in quantity and taste. Perhaps this has something to do with the restaurant's location, which is at the heart of Antwerp's more expensive southern region. In conclusion, Bar Italia is a safe bet when you're in the area with no idea where else to go. The food is tasty, the service correct and the atmosphere pleasant.

    The staff was friendly and the place is nice. The tables are close together so when it is full it can get a bit crowded. You are in a nice location near other restaurants, bars, some clubs and a short walk from the actual historical center. Then the food... It pains us a bit to say this because Bar Italia used to be a place where we liked to they served sloppy pizza and so so pasta. The middle of the pizza was soaked and soggy because the sauce was runny. The taste was not bad but not great either. The pasta was unremarkable and something you can probably prepare at home. The dessert was good. We regret to say that for our next italian restaurant experience, we'll go somewhere else. Hopefully they improve the quality again.

    efficient helping , no hustle and easy going. good food thouth rates tend to be just a bit high - I suppose one has to pay for location.
