Our little story

This is not Renaud Waeterloos’ first challenge. After Ricotta & Parmesan opened in 1999, Zotte Mouche opened in June 2021 and Il Gastronomico opened in October 2021, Renaud Waeterloos, creator and developer of horeca establishment, is taking on a new challenge with this fourth address based on Italian products and the pleasure of wine.
