Try it ... Book in advance

Book - Arrive and let the evening take you away. The menu is great, however if you explain you want an Italian gastro experience - let the owners take you on a journey

Good Italian restaurant with funny waiters. Make reservations early and come early as later on the evening the place fills to max capacity which means that you may have to wait before getting a table, even if you made a reservation. Lovely starters (grilled sardine), pizza and pasta and good and not too expensive wine list. Would definitely go again.

I have lived in Maastricht and I've dined here several times. I am living now in Aruba and went on vacation to the Netherlands. I got a flu and even that did not hold me back to visit this unique restaurant with their friendly staff who make you feel like family! The food was as good as usual! A really... More

We visited II Giardino recently with some family and friends, we know the restaurant is always busy and there are people waiting and waiting at the front to be seated. We booked our table well in advance we were on time and they promptly seated us we thought for the evening. They had no English menu which surprised us and... More

Due to high rates here and Iens we went here. Great wine, ok service but horrible food. The anti pasti plate looked disgusting on a plastic silver plate. We sent it back and got something a little better. All plates are hard plastic by the way? and the caprese salad is not served with real (Buffalo) mozzarella. What a disgrace.... More

For a restaurant that seems to be very busy on a daily basis and almost impossible to get into on a weekend night, the food and service were really nothing special. We had a calzone to start: it was tasteless, poorly filled and nothing more that a lot of pizza dough. We each had a pasta dish as a main... More

Had a very good pizza here. The base was very good and plenty of toppings. Good wine. And reasonably price.

A colleague who has been coming here for years introduced me to this unassuming little restaurant with its slightly retro neon sign outside. However, inside was all 'familia'-run and friendly, unpretentious service. Best of all was the food - fresh bruschetta as amuse-bouche, followed by vitello tonnato ( veal carpaccio in tuna sauce) and then an excellent dover sole in... More

In one word: disappointing. How difficult can it be to serve, as a starter, a carpaccio? In this restaurant it is very difficult. It tasted like is was made 5 days before. Tough, and way to much cheese. The same for the pizza, sorry, but it was not fresh. We ordered a botlle of wine, which came at the main... More
