regular italian restaurant, good food but nothing (too) special. traditional italian atmosphere and one very grumpy waiter that propbably may be headhunted for this role. average may not do justice to this restaurant, but very good is a step too far in my opinion.

This restaurant is in a good position on the sunny side of the Grote Markt. We booked by telephone in English and communication was a little tricky, however the booking was successful. It is a traditional old-fashioned Italian restaurant but none the worse for that. The portions are hearty and the cooking is very good. The saltimbocca was very good.... More

This Italian restaurant is in a good position in the main square and boats a larger than average menu. The food was average and I regret to say the service was too. The older chap seemed to take charge and I think he was probably the owner or manager - he wasn't happy and I considered him just short of... More

Service was quick and friendly but not impressed with the food, Lasagne maison was about 2 % meat and filled up with cheap sliced processed ham, house wine was drinkable but not memorable I am sure there are better Italian restaurants in Kortrijk

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.

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.

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.
