“Friendly dinner with work colleague”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

My colleague is italian, and he rated the food. He said the mozzarella was good and the tiramasu rated an 8 out of 10 . . . . high praise.

I had mixed salad followed by veal, both of which were perfect for me.
The atmosphere was lovely. Cozy and friendly and pretty budy. Plenty of buzz from other tables.

“Excellent Italian food and wonderful atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Nothing to dislike, not pushy or anything, just lovely and very accommodating. Will go again as haven't seen all of Ghent, try again in the summer and check out the changes.

“Good food, service a bit slow.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

A very popular Italian restaurant in Gent. Booking is advisable most days. The food is good and varied , but we found the service to be a bit slow and waited an age to be asked if we required desert or a second drink. However it would not stop me going back.

“Great all round”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

We had my sisters hen dinner last Saturday in Il folletto ! We had a great night. The set menu requested had great variety and everyone enjoyed their food. And the house wine was also very enjoyable. The group of 23 hens were seated in a separate room which we were allowed to decorate. Each course was well paced and promptly served on a night when it was quite busy. The atmosphere and restaurant itself is warm and bright. Above all, the most impressive aspect of this restaurant is the service ! Staff and Manger Tina were lovely and really helped make it a great night.

“Excellent meal and Service for 12 people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We booked this restaurant for 12 people for 8pm. When we arrived the table wasn't quite ready which didn't cause any real problem as we went next door for a drink. When we eventually sat down the service was prompt and the selection of food very good. Absolutely no complaints about the quality of food, which across the 12 of us covered most of the menu. The bill at the end was also very reasonable despite the copious amounts of wine drunk.
The atmosphere was good and I would highly recommend this restaurant for those looking for a simple meal of high quality and value
