We were staying close by and walked to this local trattoria, not expecting too much. How wrong can you be? The wines were well chosen and excellent. We had a starter of a Sicilian style paper thin calzone with anchovies and capers that we shared. It was excellent. For a main course we both had lasagne bolognese. This was piping... More

We went for an Italian pizza and we were not disappointed, to the contrary it was very tasty. The restaurant has an Italian interior and a terrace with sun in the afternoon. Waitress was very friendly.

A little bit hidden in a side street, you find this cosy restaurant. We were there last summer with our baby and even though they could not provide a childrens chair, it was no problem for them to make space for our buggy, which is a challange in the small space...We ordered a Pizza because we only wanted to quickly...

We had heard some stories about how amazing this place was, so I had build up some expectations. And the restaurant fully complied. It was very cosy and the food was original (not your ordinary ham&cheese, although they do serve Spaghetti Bolognaise, but it would be weird if they wouldn't). It's small and the walls are packed with little trinkets.... More

Living in Ghent, we know to find our way to restaurant Ensorito. First time we visited Ensorito was a year ago, since then we have been there again on several occasions. You can go for a good tasty pizza but also for a more comprehensive star cuisine. Also a drink on their terrace with a splendid view on the picturesque... More

Ensorito is a great little cozy Italian eatery in Ostend. It's not in the centre of town, but well worth a visit. We find it hard to ignore and have been visiting every time we spend time in the area. Quality ingredients are used to create very tasting dishes at honest prices. Combined with incredibly friendly service makes this a... More

I've been to this restaurant thinking I would have a good lunch given the rating it had on TripAdvisor but after eating there I think it was a bit much overrated. The pizza are made with fresh ingredient but even with pizza knife I had a hard time cutting mine!! That was the first disappointment but at least I could... More

Dear Thomas, As your wife Florence has posted the same review but in french ("n'y allez pas pour les pizzas"), you've probably read my reply in the previous review. It's very sad you posted 2 bad reviews for 2 pizza's you didn't like...I think this says enough. Best regards ;-) More
