Lovely food and very good service. Not pricy for what you get at all. I would recommend to book because it can be very crowded on Saturday evenings...

Has reason to stay in alkmaar for a few weeks recently. We headed back as always to Danille owner of the Ristobar restaurant. The food did not disappoint this time either. The food has stayed consistent in quality -presentation taste and flavour.. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant when in alkmaar. Closed on Mondays.

I come here often and i really would recommend this place like i always do with my friends. The price is above average but you can choose a 3/4 of 5 course meal for a nice price. The food is always fresh and unique served and presented in a nice and fine way. You can taste and find real Italian... More

We've visited this restaurant 13th of December 2014. We were seated at the round table in the back of the restaurant wich was lovely with our group of 8 persons! We chose the 5 course menu with complementary wine menu! All the food was superb, with special attention to the risotto with smoked eel and chestnut! Service was good, friendly... More

We have lived 9 years in Italy and finally we find back the "original" tastes in Alkmaar. Traditional dishes created with quality products. Good prosecco rosé. Decoration/ambience is typical Italian bistro. Service is good and you can test your Italian there. Reserve in the week-end, it's busy. We will go back !

Had dinner here on Saturday Night with friends. We were a party of five and found the service impeccable! I loved the menu explanations and the wine with each course. Dessert selection I thought was a bit poor, but we were full from the previous two courses. I would recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning!

Visited with friends and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The welcome from the staff was very friendly and the service was attentive without being intrusive. I had two courses with wine to match starting with the salad and followed by the risotto. The risotto was exceptional and full of rich flavours. Highly recommend this restaurant and I hope to visit... More

The Ristobar presents itself as an italian restaurant with class and style. They do not completely succeed, the food is good, but not exceptional. The capellini vongole was outstanding; the 2 plates with housemade ravioli were not the same, that’s strange. The service was, how shall I put it, very friendly, but missed some flair and attention for the guests.... More

The perfect place for your evening meal in Alkmaar. If you want a genuine Italian meal, this is the place. Fine food, friendly professional service. A good choice is available on the menu. The food is excellent. If you have a special dish you would like served, just phone in and ask, nothing is to much trouble. We have never... More
