Experience True Italian Flavors at Norma Genk’s New Location

GENK, Belgium – Norma Genk, the authentic Italian restaurant in Genk located within the iconic C-Mine complex, is delighted to announce its new, expanded location – allowing more food lovers to enjoy Norma’s fresh pasta, wood-fired pizza, and Sicilian specialties. Led by manager Fabio Burgio, Norma brings true Italian dining to Genk with its cozy atmosphere, family recipes, and dedication to quality ingredients.

A True Italian Dining Experience

“Our mission is to give customers a true taste of Italy through our food, wine, and welcoming environment,” said manager Fabio Burgio. “At our new location, we’re able to replicate our popular dishes on a larger scale while maintaining the charm and care that makes Norma special.”

Norma’s authentic Italian restaurant in Genk’s menu showcases beloved Italian comfort foods like creamy carbonara, slow-simmered Bolognese, and crisp, hot-from-the-oven pizzas. Pasta is freshly made in-house each day. Pizzas bake in an authentic Italian wood-fired oven to achieve the perfect crisp crust and smoky flavor.

“We use classic Italian techniques to prepare the recipes I grew up with,” explained Burgio. “Our food comes straight from the heart of Sicily to yours.”

Warm, Family-Style Hospitality

In addition to incredible flavors, Norma Genk aims to make guests feel like part of the family. Its cozy interior lined with wine bottles and strung with Italian lights transports diners to a trattoria in the Old Country. Servers treat patrons like honored guests, chatting and joking as they serve up platters of pasta as bountiful as Nonna’s.

“We want our customers to slow down, relax, and savor their meal without rushed wait staff hovering,” said Burgio. “Our servers engage with tables like old friends. It’s a more genuine hospitality style typical of Southern Italy.”

Impeccably Sourced Ingredients

Norma insists on using high-quality ingredients sourced from Italy whenever possible. Pastas come from artisanal Italian makers, showcasing the shapes and flavors of each region. Bright San Marzano tomatoes top pizzas and star in sauces. Herbs and olive oils hail straight from Sicilian soil.

“Authentic Italian cuisine depends on real Italian ingredients,” noted Burgio. “We have excellent suppliers that allow us to access those traditional products that make our food taste like it came from an Italian kitchen.”

Pairing Suggestions That Complement Each Dish

Norma’s wine list features a thoughtful selection of Italian bottles ranging from bright whites to bold reds that pair perfectly with its menu. The staff regularly samples new vintages to identify optimal pairings. Burgio provides pairing suggestions with each dish to help customers choose the ideal wine.

“Italian wines shine when they accompany foods from the same region,” Burgio explained. “We want to share that experience of a wine and meal that truly complement each other.”

In addition to wine, Norma offers after-dinner drinks like creamy limoncello and fruited grappas that top off a meal. Sweet tooths can indulge in Italian desserts like panna cotta and tiramisu.

Bringing Italy to Genk

Norma Genk’s new location allows it to bring Italy’s flavors and hospitality to more Belgian diners. Its previous location near the old mining site cemented its reputation for excellent cuisine. The move to C-Mine provides added space plus convenience.

“We’re excited to show more guests what we’re all about,” said Burgio. “Our regulars feel like family, but we always love welcoming new faces.”

Burgio envisions Norma as a lively community gathering place where friends, families, colleagues, and neighbors can break bread together and foster connections.

“For me, Italian dining is all about bringing people together over amazing food and wine,” he explained. “If we can transport guests to Italy for a little while and bring them closer together, we’ve done our job.”
