“A few vegetarian options”
Review of Osteria Al Sikulo

Osteria Al Sikulo
Ranked #215 of 997 Restaurants in Ghent
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$20 - US$27
Description: Osteria al Sikulo is a cozy culinary paradise, an hidden gem in the beautiful flemish city of Gent. A place to feel at home, where the ancient flavors from Sicily get a modern interpretation. Time stands still in this place, together with Chef Salvo and Annalisa, authentic Sicilian couple and their warm welcoming. Culinary art is combined with visual art during KUNST&SMAAK events: Sikulo's walls will change each month, hosting the works of always different artists.

Three of us had different vegetarian meals and all liked ours immensely. It does make you feel like you're in Italy for a while.

A cozy restaurant in the very heart of the fairytale city of Gent, with exquisite and authentic Sicilian cuisine which felt like home (since I am Sicilian!); excellent choice of beers, super friendly staff and lovely design!

The food is not bad, dessert and wine were even pretty good, but way overpriced. You can have much more value for money in the same zone of the town.

Grazie per la sua visita al nostro ristorante.
Per una cena "Pretty good" mi sembra alquanto estremo un due. Purtroppo la maggior parte della gente non capisce che l'importazione grava già il doppio sul nostro prezzo di aquisto e che la qualità dei prodotti si paga. Poi naturalmente si può preferire una lasagna precotta e riscaldata al microonde in un ristorante che di italiano ha solo l'insegna( ma dove un italiano non c'è)a metà del prezzo delle nostre pietanze autentiche e considerarla ottima.
De gustibus non est disputandum! ;-)
I nostri prezzi sono visibili sul nostro sito web, noi operiamo con correttezza, onestà e qualità con amore e passione per la cucina, per la gente e per quello che ogni giorno costruiamo. Se ha prenotato sarà passato dal nostro sito web, quindi se per le sue disponibilità lo riteneva eccessivo poteva anche non prenotare. E se non ha visitato il nostro sito web avrà visto sicuramente il Menu esposto con tutti i prezzi, e anche al momento di ordinare avrà visto i prezzi e di conseguenza fare una scelta equilibrata e cosciente. Quindi mi perdoni, ma faccio fatica a comprendere, per qualsiasi chiarimento rimaniamo disponibili in Waaistraat 14, Gent

Didn't know this place existed, but what a discovery! Small, charming, very friendly. A very small choice on the menu but what a delightful choice! A very different view of Italian (sorry, Sicilian!) food. Absolutely delicious food!

I was very impressed, many Italian restaurants outside Italy tend to serve pizza and spaghetti. Nothing really wrong with that but there is more in Italian cuisine and you can find it here. The menu is limited: 4 Antipasti, 4 primi, 4 secondi and some dolci. (apparently the menu changes regularly though) but all of them sound excellent and the ones we tried were definitely superb! simple (e.g. no espuma's) but full of flavour. I'll be back in a few weeks when the menu has changed. Hey, I might even bring Italian friends to this place,
