Restaurant Firenze has been around for as long as I can remember. It's situated on the corner of Sint-Amandstraat and Blandijnberg, the highest point in the city. Easy parking available @Sint-Pieters Parking, 3 minutes away from the highway. The restaurant's entrance features double doors, which is convenient when it's cold, as the guests sitting near the entrance don't have to... More

We do come here regularly for a basic but very well prepared meal. We are not Italian so I will not judge the autenticity of the courses, but to us the food is very well prepared, big portions, fresh ingredients, good meat! We love it here with the family. At first, the service can come across a bit frightening, but... More

We go here quite often (mostly on birthdays) and we have never ever been disappointed. The food is fantastic - try the scaloppina and pasta lupara - the setting is really Italianlike, without being corny and the service is excellent.

We went here for our anniversary, the food was amazing, possibly the best spaghetti i have ever had in my life! The server didn't speak english but we managed to communicate easily enough by pointing at what we wanted. Living down near Mons I'm more used to service taking incredibly long and being stuck for hours in a restaurant so... More

This restaurant is so cosy! As a starter, I had the parmaham with melon, sooooo much ham !! You might only want to order is when you're starving and know you will still have room left for your main course. I had the spaghetti with scampi and currysauce as a main. It was sooo gooodd. But i was already stuffed... More

One of the best Italian restaurants in Gent and led by Italians people. Want a proper Italian dish? Don't forget to book your table in time! You might meet the regular customers, AA Ghent soccer players not the least...

This is a good Italian restaurant near city center Ghent and near the University of Ghent. The food is tasty, the service is good and the atmosphere is quite nice. The prices are a bit expensive but not completely out of line considering the quality of the fare. I had arrived in town and needed a place for dinner. I... More

I was there with a group of 6. We had a variety of dishes. The food was OK, but missed the true "touch" to make it truly Italian (in particular for carpaccio I expect a decent dressing seasoning, and the vitello tonnato lacked tuna taste). Decent food and apparently a very popular place, but not specifically Italian. The restaurant accepts... More

I'm Italian and I an ensure you that this is a really bad pizza! Even a frozen pizza is better than what we ate here. I girl at my table got what was supposed to be a carbonara... Just wrong ingredients, terrible appearance and horrible smell! Stay away from this place if you want real Italian food!

Fun and charming staff serving good, solid Italian food. Servings are generous. Prices are mid-range. You may be able to do a bit better in Ghent, but this place has a great authentic, friendly and "Italian family" atmosphere while preserving a bit of intimacy and coziness. :) It is always busy, almost always full, with many return patrons. :) Note:...
