By the side of the canal slighty away from the main drag, this is the ideal location if you enjoy relatively quiet meals with an excellent atmosphere.

Service was friendly and knowledgeable and my fish pasta was wonderful. Slightly pricey, but recommended if you're a lover of Italian cuisine.

We were there for dinner. It was great , very nice place in center of Ghent, fresh food and perfect service . My husband eat fish which was fresh and very tasty. I chosed cannelloni mmmm...my daughter pasta with pesto of the house . We listened to the advice of the waiter for the wine and it was the best we could do because it was a very tasty biological wine. Highly recommanded for us .

The restaurant has a limited menu, which varies every 3 weeks, so that they only use seasonable products. The menu consists of 2 parts, one are the piadine, which are a sort of flat breads filled with meats, cheese, vegetable and similar to pizza toppings, but without the tomato sauce. The other part is more filling and has mostly pasta dishes. Service was friendly, but rather Italian style. If the weather is nice, one can sit outside, although the view isn´t great.
