We really liked this place and the owner. Nice atmosphere.

Limited wine choice, but what we were offered was good, and good value.

We had starters and a pasta main. We were just a little underwhelmed by the pasta sauce, and the owner was disappointed to see half-eaten plates.

We would definitely try this again if ever in Ghent.

This is a great small restaurant speciallized in italian food. Good pastas and amazing and huge pizza! The bruschetta is also very tasty. We've been there for 2 nights, as we liked the food, the atmosphere and the cost.

Run by two brothers from Puglia this busy restaurant serves delicious Italian dishes, home cooking style. Great pasta dishes and also delicious pizzas are always on the menu as well as a top notch steak and veal dishes. Definitely worth repeat visits!

I have dined in this restaurant a few times, always been very pleased by the excellent Italian restaurant. Often full, so better to book a table beforehand. The service is very friendly and in "all" languages. Try the dishes with truffles but whatever your choice you'll be satisfied.
