We were very happy with our dinner at Il Folletto last week and felt we'd found a hidden treasure. The interior is cozy and charming, and the pasta was delicious. You can tell they care about quality - the waiter took our order but the chef personally brought his creations to our table. Il Folletto was recommended to us by... More

Worth visiting the restaurant. Gets busy so quick, which is a good sign. They certainly take time to serve the food, maybe it was just me feeling it as I went solo. But it was worth a wait. Good place to go with your partner, couple of friends or family. Thumbs up :p

The restaurant is not the most modern place, but the menu is very good. A lot of pasta variations can be found and they serve a good crusty nice pizza.

Although all the tables were occupied which is a good sign didn't have to wait long. Located just off the canal behind the Marriott hotel. Very quaint but small typically italien.Menu varied and very reasonably priced good selection of beers and wine. Food extremely good and hot. Overall a lovely evening

Great Italian food in the center of Ghent.. One of the very few restaurant in town that serves food a bit later than other restaurants..

I've been together with my boyfriend for the first time yesterday. We had a wonderful burrata (a pro version of mozzarella di bufala), a pizza with truffle (mouthwatering) and a lamb in tomato sauce (served with edges rather than fries, never expect them in a italian restaurant...), topped with delicious red house wine and amari (don't skip them EVER!). I... More

Seemingly a very popular restaurant despite we receiving a bill somewhat higher than those we received at others nearby. Booking is essential when wanting to attend at shortish notice and our hotel opposite worked wonders in using their influence in getting us a table for two that same evening. The food and attention were superb and we would go there... More
