In the shadow of the Castle of Counts, there is a very nice and traditional Italian restaurant.
Within just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel you go from the center of Ghent to the real Italy.

At the entrance you can find Mr Pino, he is the owner of the restaurant and he makes the pizza’s. Pino’s sons will walk you to your table where you can enjoy a good drink with some olives and bread whilst taking a glance at the menu.
The restaurant has a large selection of pizza’s and pasta’s and prepared fish or meat dishes. They even have pizza’s in the shape of an elephant for the children or in the shape of a heart for the single women. Prices are between 10€ and 25€. Which is a very good quality price value.

The façade of the restaurant looks very simple, however we do recommend you to go inside as you can really feel the Italian vibe here. Pino discussing with his sons in Italian, the aroma of freshly made pizza and pasta, the sound of steaming milk. This everything makes you feel as if you were in Italy.
If you want to visit this restaurant , it is really necessary to make your reservation in advance.
Al Castello is very popular amongst the residents of our city.
