“Excellent value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

About a year and a half ago this trattoria was opened in our home town of Ghent. La Puglia offers good quality food at a reasonable price. That makes us so happy that we want to share it with you all. We have eaten at La Puglia three times now, twice just the two of us and once with friends, and everything we have ordered was very good to excellent. The escalope pizzaiola is tops, the best I have ever tasted and my favourite dish so far. The pizzas are nice and big. My tagliatelle della nonna came in an oven dish and had a tasty, creamy sauce. According to our friends, the escalope maison is very good. Nice touches are the standard appetizers of bruschette with two different toppings and the limoncello that sometimes comes with the bill instead of the usual boring amaretto (they will gladly exchange the amaretto for limoncello or vice versa if you like). Prices start at 8 € for pizza or pasta. Be sure to make a reservation on a Friday or a Saturday night. The nicest seating is near the window or the bar. The back is a bit gloomy and lacks atmosphere even though you get to look into the kitchen. Pizzeria Trattoria La Puglia is located near the Keizerpoort, a little out of the very centre of town. If you prefer not to walk, tram number 4 will take you there in a matter of minutes. Your stop is Sint-Lievensdoorgang.
