pricey for what you get

Although the food is not bad at all, the proces are too high for the meals they serve. A basic lasagna costs 18 euros....way too expensive.

Second trip to Kortrijk and second visit here. A guarantee of getting good tasty food. Go hungry as the portions are generous. The service is good, we even had our coats held for us as we were getting ready to go. It will be a place I will go on return visits to Kortrijk.

They have a really good service and they bring you the food in almost 15 minute, even if there are a lot of people in the restaurant. I really enjoy coming here! It's great to see that the waiters also try to connect with you and they always smile at you.

I know this restaurant since the end of the years 1980's and I eat there once or twice a year. Franco is well known in Kortrijk. His cuisine is basically Italian and you can eat there all what you want: pastas, pizzas and the main Italian meat preparations; but they are also able to make some Belgian or French cuisine....

There are many other places in Kortrijk that (simply put) have better pizzas - or other food. Have a look around (here on Tripadvisor) and choose something else.

Fancy an over priced pizza? Want to wait 40 minutes for said pizza? Want to wait a further 25 minutes to get the bill? Then this is the place for you. This business must survive on it's location. It doesn't seem to attract local clients and seems to be filled with business travellers. It's such a shame...I love Italian food... More

I and my American colleague went here to have a diner. The outdoor seating was empty. We took a seat at 4 chair table, but the waiter did not allow us to sit here, but directed us to a small two chair table. When we objected the waiter told us (not very polite way) that the restaurant will be full... More

Went for a quiet meal with friends here and I can only describe most of the waiters as extremely uptight. In fact, we felt after we had ordered that they almost didn't want us to be there. The head waiter was extremely rude, making a fuss when I ordered a beer and wine together. Later, despite the fact that people... More

Visiting here, I worried that all restaurants were like this one. It took 20+ minutes to even get water to the table. The waiters were more interested in smoking than helping the customers. The food was average, nothing spectacular. There are other good restaurants on the square if you want good Italian.
