My wife and I have been here twice so far, and so far it has always been an amazing experience. The menu and combinations are not what you expect from your boring, tried and tested Italian restaurants, which makes me believe this is the authentic Italian cuisine. We were pleasantly surprised by the myriad selection of gorgeous and delicious foods... More

Small restaurant with great food! The restaurant is located in a renovated house. You can either sit downstairs or on the first floor. The interior and soft music immediately takes you to a warm summer night in Italy. We chose the menu degustazione. This is menu consists of a serie of small dishes to give you the opportunity to taste... More

This weekend I went to eat in castello lucano with my sister and her boyfriend and we ate menù degustazione. It was absolutely awesome! In the beginning we thought it was expensive but then we realised it's even cheap for how much you receive: first different hapjes, then a delicious pasta with salsiccia, calf meat with fresh truffle and finally...

I went there with my girlfriend a today and I was pleasantly surprised because I read some recent comments which were not so positive. We had the truffle menu and it was delicious! I know that truffles are really expensive so a price of 80 euros for a 4-course menu, where you also get a lot of food and 4... More

We had heard such great things about this restaurant... read such good reviews. Truly doumbfounded here! This was absolutely the worst Italian food I have ever eaten in my life. Crackers with Boursin, aubergine spread from a can, dishes seasoned with knorr bouillon (and that's it), something that looked like truffle, but without any taste and 0 aroma. The wine... More

A small typical Italian restaurant that can get a bit noisy. The food is good Italian food but not exceptional enough to warrant a "very good" score. We had the "Degustazione Lucana" for starters and this mixture of antipasti had some great but also some disappointing things. I was also a not impressed by the Pasta al Tartufo which I... More

Went to Castello Lucano after reading the reviews. Indeed, food is nice! Not amazing, but nice, traditional and real italian food. Prices are a bit steep for what it is though... Service is friendly. However, we had to finish our food in a hurry and get out of there because the smoke & smells from the kitchen was unbearable! Really... More

During my recent trip to Leuven, I had a chance to eat at Castello Lucano. I was very pleased with the food, ambiance, the service at Castello Lucano. I will certainly be back to this place when I visit Leuven again.
