I have always been charmed by this fabulous Sicilian restaurant in the heart of Ghent. I have precious memories of the summery terrace drinking a tasty biodynamic wine and of a cosy and heart warming interior on colder or rainy days. For lunch I adore their fresh fish of the day with a delicious al dente pasta, at night I... More

Had supper with 5 friends- place looks rundown and their attempt to create an Italian feeling didn't succeed. Service was poor with little assistance to explain their menu. Been there, won't go back

Most of us chose the menu, I chose fish, and was really surprised of the great value and quality of the dishes. They are presented in a beautiful way, and taste fresh, without other added tastes overflavouring the great taste of the ingredients. Everything is balanced out to perfection. Great wine too, I chose the assorted wines, which is a... More

Good thing about restaurants is you can make a reservation well up front to be sure you can enjoy a nice dinner on Friday evening. However in a restaurant like Per Bacco this simply doesn't matter, so why bother, they for sure don't! Upon arrival (on time, as reserved) they told us a group came in without reservation and they...

I went there on a Sunday evening, and had the 4 course menu, which allowed me to sample quite a few different plates (with wild mushrooms, roe and dove) and three different desserts (pear crème, chocolate tart and tiramsu) without overeating. In summer there is a terrace, but winter there is a nice indoor seating area (although I would avoid... More

This is a real Italian restaurant, not the pizza type but the real stuff you get in Italy. It is not cheap but the taste is divine. Yes, I know sometimes you are treated like in Italy but you should not go there with little children or expecting fine-dining 3 star Michelin. It is made by real Italian guys/girls and... More
