Top 10 restaurant for a reason

Fabulous and very attentive staff. We were a group of 12 that did not have reservations, but walked in off the street. Even though the restaurant was very busy, they put together a large table for us in minutes and away we went. I personally had the special that evening, which was a beef dish... read more

Nice Italian restaurant in Arnhem. I visited other restaurants in Arnhem during some years and I'm glad to finally have found one that suits me. The Vitello Tonato was correct but could have used some more capers. The steak of the house was perfect and so was the pannacota. The Barbera d'Alba was quiet pricey.

On the 24th of April we have visited this Italian restaurant. The tomato soup was fantastic. The lobster with pasta was almost unbelievable. What a super dinner we had.

A fabulous authentic italian restaurant in shopping street, downtown Arnhem. Passionate family owners, who give one the feeling to be visiting. Excellent italian traditional dishes way beyond pata and pizza. Great wines. In the summer the garden is great for gatherings, festivities. The garden room a delight for smaller groups. But best is a dinner for two, enjoying the attention... More

We had dinner here in April. My daughter had a vegetarian option, I had a rib-eye steak. The food was good but overpriced and service was leisurely.

One for the romantic couples and the ladies night out. Wonderful selection of wines from several nations; dishes you expect in a global city not a regional location. Service outstanding and priced to view as a special night out. Rosemary bread good enough to make the choice on itself.

La Rusticana is a solid name in Arnhem. Quality food and for the summer also a nice garden to dine. The restaurant is a good place for a family dinner but equally for a romantic setting or business meet.
