Authentic Italian restaurant

Great Italian restaurant, very authentic tasting dishes, all waiters speak Italian and are Italian descendants. Rustic food, great wine selection. I personally feel this is the best Italian restaurant in the province. Noisy restaurant but it really feels like you're eating somewhere in Milan. Make... read more

Stopped over for a quick lunch. Place was not to busy. Service seems without any intrest but after all correct. Had one main course and a desert and a bottle of good Italian wine. Food was ok but I had better Italian meals. All in all it's good for what I used it but I doubt I would go their... More

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 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
