As noted below servers are surely and you can not split a pizza with someone. Business must be so good they can afford the bad reviews. What makes things all the worse is the food is not bad and they do have a great central...More

Here you have the real Italian honest food without the new "flavours" and "hip" stuff, this is the genuin no nonsence best flavour. Forget the TV/Hipster-stuff; The best best Italian in Gent and there are lots of them and I tried them all/most.

Our hotel recommended this Italian restaurant facing the castle and they made a reservation for us. Good thing, because it was packed. The food was good, but the service was kind of rushed and less than friendly.

I can only confirm, waiters are rude. I'm a local, went there several times, since food is ok, but once you make a remark, they snitch. Restaurant is full and popular enough, so they clearly don't care.
