Local favourite for a long time. Hadn't been in at least one year, but service and food still great when I recently ate there again. Reservations a must as the place is always packed during lunch and dinner.Closed during the weekends, so be aware in order to avoid disappointments. Starters are tuna carpaccio, bruschetta or salad. Simple yet tasteful dishes.... More

I went there again this week for a business lunch, and the place remains my favorite. Very convenient to our office near the central station, this small, family run Sicilian restaurant is one of the few places I trust to have an Italian meal outside Italy, leaving very little to adaptation to local taste. Their selection of appetizers, first and... More

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

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
