The menu was only in holland language. The translation from waitress was " this is fish, this is veal..." And the cook admit himself drink a beer right to the entry to the restaurant at his working hours!

During my two weeks visit to Rotterdam in May, I was lucky enough to try this home style restaurant not only once but three times. The restaurant itself has a very beautiful, relaxing surroundings with a soft well chosen music playing on a turntable. Everything seemed to be very authentic and well thought. The waitress was very friendly and attentive.... More

One of the best italian restaurants i have been to. As an italian food lover i can say that every bite you take makes you feel like you're in heaven. While sitting in the back garden, feeling like you're in Italy, i tasted one of the best homemade desserts. Everything was so fresh and tasty! Can't wait to go again.... More

One of the best "Italian restaurant" I've ever been. Amazing meat and see food made in traditional/ classical Italian techniques. The antipasti variety is exciting, the stewed Octopus is delicious. Homemade chocolate ice-cream was great! The restaurant has a pleasant and friendly atmosphere. The chef is very nice to communicate which I like a lot. Delightful choice of music! Water... More

We had a really good and very authentically Italian meal at this restaurant. They catered well for our very large group including some picky children. Service was a bit slow between courses but the food was great.

I have had a lot of Italian food in my life, in Italy, as well as in several other countries. some meals and restaurants better then other. I must say that this was a waste of time and money. The antipasti was good, but main course was small, and so basic that you can getter better food at Mac Donald's.... More

After viewing the reviews in Trip Advisor we thought we must visit this restaurant. Restaurant does not have good noise insulation and got a little loud when it was half full. Food was very nice but unfortunately we were still hungry after our meal because the portions were too small. Also I think they need to have some music. Service... More
