If you’re looking to experience
a not so regular Italian restaurant
in the heart of historic Ghent. You made it.

Sure, Patershol is a well-known tourist destination
but don’t be mistaken,
it’s not a tourist trap.
We serve off the hook antipasti and pizzas
you have never seen before.
All smelling as good as they taste.


Forget about all the clichés you know
about Italian food. We do it different,
even dare to say we do it better.
Rebels without a cause.
We love you at the counter while
chatting it up with the staff.
(Our waitress by the way is not Italian,
but she can talk with an Italian accent just
to make you feel better.)

Our bar is stocked with an impressive
smattering of drinks and a selection of very
fine Italian wines. For all you non-carnivorous,
no worries we serve vegetarian too.

Allora, don’t expect candles in an old wine
bottle on a red and white tablecloth.
No tricolored overload and, oh God,
no Andreas Bocelli through the speakers.

You have to know the rules to bend the rules.
