Visited this place yesterday, because of the great recommendations on tripadvisor. But it turned out to be a very bad decision to go there! Had to wait for 25 minutes to get a table, even with a booking. We had carpaccio with tuna/radiccio as startet and a spaghetti/ravioli as main course. All 4 dishes were of bad quality(cheap ham, tomatoes,... More

This place was recommended to us by The Manhattan Hotel and we were not disappointed. Very laid back atmosphere, great service from the owners and very impressed that they managed to find space for a table of 9 at short notice. We started with mixed antipasto followed by either meat or fish dishes. The food was good and the wine... More

Was staying at a hotel across the street for business and my colleague recommended the restaurant. It's also right next to the train station. The place is small but is very quaint. The mention is handwritten on a large chalkboard that they drag to your table. I wanted fish and the waitress was very helpful at making suggestions. I also... More

Try to get a seat, better make a reservation. The place is always packed.... Great food... They don't do pizza, but real nice pasta and others.

We have had our lunch two times there during our three days business trip. The location is very very close to the train station and the Manhattan Hotel. The italian food was great indeed, pastas and cold starters were delicious, a family owned business, an Italian family who are hands on all the time. The prices were reasonnable, the decoration...

I agree with almost all the comments made before - except it isn't hard to find. It's right across from the main entrance of the Rotterdam Centraal train station. It's very reasonably priced (€30 for pre-dinner beer, pasta meal (American sized), wine, coffee, dessert, and tip).

If you are looking for some authentic Italian food in Rotterdam, A proposito is the place for you. It doesn't look like much from the outside, it can be easily missed as I never saw it before last week and I have been living in Rotterdam for 5 years. The place is very busy so I would advise to book... More

Delicious food, excellent service. I was with my four teenage / pre-teenage sons and the staff were very attentive and considerate when they couldn't decide on what to eat. There was even a lesson on how to twirl spaghetti, which was appreciated by all. Everything was cooked to perfection (various Carne dishes and Spaghetti Bolognese) and the desserts were all... More

I've been to this restaurant a couple of times and enjoyed my visit on both occasions. The food is good, although I found both my hors d'oevre and main were surprisingly spicy for Italian food... maybe because this food is Sicilian. I enjoyed both the mussels and swordfish, and the semi fredo for pudding was also delicious. The restaurant has... More
