About Angelo . . .

Angelo Galasso, Chef and Owner of Pane & Olio Micro-restaurant has always been passionate about cooking. As a child, he was always with his mum in kitchen where the family culinary traditions were passed from generation to generation. During his studies, he met his future wife coming from Belgium and, after a few years, he decided to move to Brussels. Mixing his love for good products, the desire to share his passion, a touch of fantasy and a crazy idea, Angelo created Pane & Olio micro-restaurant. Immediate success rewarded his hard work; very quickly Angelo joined the Italian Federation of Chefs and Eurotoques Belgium. He enjoys supporting small local producers and products of excellence from the Italian food industry; through his micro-restaurant he brought the southern Italy’s authentic culinary traditions in Belgium. His major talent is mixing traditions and modernity.

Mons and Brussels

“Mons is perhaps worth talking about, because it is a charming town.”  That is how Victor Hugo described it. Lovers of cultural heritage and history should definitely visit it; Mons was the European Capital of Culture in 2015. As you walk through the town, you will notice that it’s anchored in the past but thoroughly modern. Many of his attractions are classified as UNESCO World Heritage sites. Mons is located less than an hour from the Capital, so it is very easy to travel to Brussel, the centre of European culture and institutions. In Brussels you can enjoy its famous chocolates and beers and visit museums, beautiful parks, architecture, bars and much more.
