Pasta? Yes Please!

Looking for an eatery in Ostend that serves delicious pasta? We are happy to recommend the following hotspots for pasta lovers.

Bistro Bajatzu

In this restaurant Italian cuisine really comes into its own. A warm welcome, a cosy interior and fresh products. Why not start with the extensive antipasti, accompanied by an aperitif? Afterwards, you can enjoy one of the original pastas, but beware: the portions are huge! Wine lovers can choose from the delicious selection of wines. Booking a table in advance is highly recommended!


Are you a vegetarian with a love for Italian cuisine? This is the place to be! Sassy's serves delicious vegetarian stone-baked pizza and fresh pasta. Vegans are not overlooked here either. How about pizza with chicory, tofugyros and brie? Or spaghetti with tempeh sauce? Would you rather have a piece of meat on your plate? No problem, that's also on the menu. Choosing from the tasty desserts will be more difficult: vegan carrot cake, brownie cheesecake, ricotta cheesecake. Mmmm ... mouthwatering!

't Zeezotje

"Pasta with a beautiful view of the port". No, that's not a dish on the menu, but what you can expect in 't Zeezotje. Surrounded by the street art of The Crystal Ship, you can enjoy delicious pasta frutti di mare or pasta with lobster. According to their website, 't Zeezotje is the only bistro where Italian dishes are spelt correctly and served as they should be. So find your spot on the sun terrace and "buen appetito"!

Trattoria Ensorito

Close to the church Our Lady of the Dunes in Mariakerke, you can find Ensorito, a nicely decorated "trattoria". Discover a piece of Italy on the Ostend coast and enjoy a southern atmosphere with a nice glass of wine, heavenly food and pleasant music.

't Waterhuis

Long ago, in 1632,  this water house was the only place with a licence to sell potable water to the town, the brewers and the ships. For centuries this exclusive right continued to exist, but today 't Waterhuis is widely known for its extensive choice of pasta and matching wine. Settle down by the fireplace or get a table by the window to enjoy the hustle and bustle at the marina. In addition to pasta, the menu also has a choice of croques, salads and wok dishes.

Bistroom De Baron

What makes this eatery so special? What is the big secret of owners Dieter and Kelly? It's very simple: they prepare the spaghetti as they would do at home. Oh yes, and they cook the pasta in a wok. A homely atmosphere occupies centre stage here and this is noticeable in everything, including in how the pasta is served: it's placed on the table in one large pot and each table guest serves up for himself. More in the mood for something other than pasta? De Baron serves no less than eight different croquettes! And don't forget to choose from the extensive selection of beers and gin.


At Marebello you can choose from an extensive Italian menu while enjoying the sea view. The pastas and pizzas are prepared à la minute. With its location on the Albert I-Promenade, near Kursaal Ostend, this spot is a must in every respect.

La Piazza

The name leaves no doubt that this is an authentic Italian restaurant. You can order some bruschetta, one of the 20 pizzas or another typical Italian dish such as escalope or raviole melanzane. And of course, you will also find pasta on the menu: from lasagne to bolognese or vongole. It doesn't get more Italian than this!

Villa Borghese

You can pick up delicious Italian dishes from this caterer, but you can also have lunch on the spot in their cosy interior. On the menu, you will find both pizza and pasta but also other classics such as escalope. A must-go-to place for any Italy enthusiast!


Italian cuisine should burst with flavours and they know this particularly well at caterer Piemonte. Love for tasty Italian dishes and local products is the motto of this takeaway. Their Mediterranean creations quickly conquered the heart of many Ostend residents. In addition to takeaway dishes, Piemonte also offers all kinds of Italian specialities such as wines, artisan liqueurs, cheeses and typical Italian olive oil. Buy them as a gift or for yourself. The choice is yours.


Moretti is the place to be for a varied range of pizza, pasta, fish and meat dishes. Fresh products come first. Even the deliciously crusty bread is baked on-site!

Il Gabbiano

At this pizzeria, the pizzas are prepared in an authentic stone oven. But the pastas are also to die for! You eat here in one of the smallest restaurants in Ostend, but you can also take their Italian dishes with you and enjoy them at home.

Buon appetito!
