That opportunity was to take over the magnificent L’Auberge Saint-Pierre in WezembeekOppem, a 20-minute drive from the Belgian capital, with his daughters Brenda and Doriana. Now, surrounded by his family, Salvatore likes to take his diners on a journey through France and Italy with his cuisine – and his establishment. “Upon entering our establishment, you will see a beautiful veranda, with a view of the terrace and the garden. There are four rooms, perfectly arranged to organise any special occasion, be it a birthday, anniversary or business meeting,” explains Brenda Ingenito. Menus are regularly tailor-made for each event and feature seasonal, local, produce such as freshly caught lobster from the on-site pond.
