The atmosphere is nice and the service friendly. The food is average, at least what we had. We had a pizza (I've really tried better pizzas before), cannelloni (at least average), tuna filet (not bad) and a beef filet with pepper sauce (not bad).

The food was great and the service was excellent! We asked for vegetarian food and they went out of the way to make our lunch one of the best!

A REAL Italian Restaurant. Very nice and familiar ambient, first quality ITALIAN ingredients like the S. Daniele ham. The two guys owning this restaurant are really friendly and the kitchen is simply astonishing. We ate truffle fettuccine and they mixed the sauce directly into Grana Padano (see picture). If you are looking for real italian flavours in Rijswijk, this is... More

I have been eating at Gran Sasso several times in the recent past and each time was an enjoyable and rewarding experience. While modestly priced, the authentic Italian food is of very good quality.

We love to eat here. The food is fantastic, the season menus very well put together. The desserts to die for. Without doubt the best restaurant in Rijswijk.

The new owner has given the restaurant a nice, modern but stylish interior. The restaurant is fairly small. The owner and staff have personal attention for everyone. Owner, staff and chef are all Italians which adds to the atmosphere and authenticity of the place. When it comes to the food and wines, they know what they are doing. Everything is... More

Under new management for about three years now, the restaurant now offers good Italian food Sicilian style (rather than Northern Italian, from where the former owner originated). Pleasant atmosphere; nice view of the old Rijswijk church from the window tables and terrace, The restaurant is currently also open for lunch.
