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

When you leave Il Giardino, you'll wonder if Maastricht is the most northern city of Italy. The food (whatever you order) is simply great. The winelist is simple but very good (you'll get your Brunello at a reasonable price). The staff is chaotic, vibrant, very friendly and, above all, well mannered, trained and skillful. So common in Italy, a gem... More

The food here is very good however the service can be somewhat lacking. Having a reservation doesn't mean you'll be seated at the reserved time, in fact we've been left standing awkwardly in their doorway for nearly an hour. This was an extreme case as they were very busy but then they shouldn't accept more reservations than tables. However the... More

Is a wonderful family Italian restaurant. The atmosphere is just enjoyable. Be there early in the evening or make reservation.
