this is a wonderful place, a little hidden also because they are building a shopping mall next door (keeping the old facade though!) and it's like stepping into mama's living room. It's small but we got a window seat (without a reservation) and the food is simply delicious.

We are foreigners, but living in Gent now. First went there with some locals and had a nice experience. The food is good. However, on our second experience, when we went alone, we found the service to be quite rude. We were refused a table even though there were several available. Eventually they served us, forgot our order and when we reminded him, the waiter told us we were wrong and never ordered the meal we requested. Never experienced that type of behavior before telling a patron they are mistaken about ordering something they obviously know they ordered. My sense is they prefer to keep this spot for locals and are not keen on having foreigners visit. I can respect that, but foreigners should consider this before going. We definitely won't be going back.

Very good food. Ok service and nice atmosphere. I enjoyed the mail and the setting. Especially the fact that it's slow food. You get ample time to talk with your company because the mails don't come in a rush. Relax and enjoy.

Don't expect a posh setting. Just expect the best Italian kitchen in Eastern Flanders made by master saucemaker Pino. Try the brasciola dei fratelli: just awesome with fresh in olive oil baked fries !

This small italian restaurant is not at all situated in the tourist area of the city but was really a very pleasant discovery. We came in late and the choice of food was limited but the lasagna and the pizza served were both very tasty.
The wine recommended by the chef from Puglia was nice although priced a bit on the high side.
The bill came with a small glass of limoncello.
For the kind of establishment (italian - pasta and pizza) the place needs to be recommended.
