Staff were very friendly. Service was great. The porcini risotto and veal mains were both very special.

Do not be mistaken by the very modest facade. Inside it lies a experience of good food and warm service. The very casual restaurant is perfect for a stop after a day of sigthseeing. We were a family of four: the girls shared a pizza and we have spaghetti ao vongole and tortelini trufata. They were all very tasty, but... More

We were looking for a nearby restaurant after a really tiring day enjoying the sights of Rotterdam and The Hague and I was drawn to the good reviews and comments and they serve until 10pm as a lot of places don't serve past 9. We were made to feel really welcome and the service was friendly and quick. The menu... More

Gianni and Laura are the warm and friendly hosts who give you a being-with-family-feeling. The dishes are haute cuisine Italian recipes for more than fair prices.

Messina is a hidden gem! We went twice (and likely a third time tonight) and we're really pleased with the food (also, the place always seems quite full --a very good sign!) The osso buco was above-average and the pizza is pretty good. The pasta, especially the linguine with foie gras and porcini (or whatever that is in Dutch/Italian), is... More
