The food was average but we really enjoyed the evening. The tirimisu was not so good - think I will send them my recipe !!! All in all I would try it again.

Excellent service! Although they were fully booked; they gave us a table for two to have a quick meal before we went to the movies. The interior is not very special but we loved their italian dishes! Absolute worthwhile to go for the whole menu next time!

Then why would I give this a good review? Simple. We had good food and good service for a good price and that's what it's all about in the end. Or is it? The waiter was a young friendly man. He wasn't much of a communicator (must be the strong silent type) but boy did he run his service to... More

The backside of getting good revues is probably that you get lasy and loos that little extra. You need a reservation to eat here on a Tuesday .

Based on the same street as our hotel we decided we'd give this little Italian a try as we were walking back to the hotel. We called in at 6pm and found that all the tables had been reserved but when we enquired about a table for 2 for 8pm the manager said no problem and when we arrived later... More

I've been to many Italian restaurants in Ghent over the last 20 years, but this one, in the heart of the city, was unknown to me. Il Folletto is a very nice place, not to large, cosy. Very friendly staff. The menu is authentic and some "off the beaten track" dishes are serverd. I went for the Panciotti and found... More

Following reviews on trip adviser we decided to book a table for our last evening in ghent expecting something special. The pizzas were okay, nothing particularly amazing, I have had better in London and even in my home town of croydon. The house wine was very good, we had a half litre carafe of red which complemented the pizza well.... More
