This is really one of the best restaurants in the Netherlands. The menu contains both classic Italian / Sicilian (like arancini) and innovative dishes. Always with a mediterranian touch. The chef uses top products. You can see and taste that every dish has been prepared with utmost care and professionalism. The menu is not that big, but there is enough... More

I recently had a fine meal at this location. Unlike the heavy handed fare you get in a typical Italian restaurant in NY , Ripassa's menu is fresh , innovative complemented by a good selection of wine . The menu and wine list are not extensive but the choices all seemed top notch . A stylish decor and unobtrusive service... More

Upmarket Italian cooking, the menu is limited but has sufficient options. You also can choose for a 2 or 3 course menu at a fixed price. Our group was into meat that evening and we various dishes like vitello tonnato, carpaccio and for main deer steaks and tournedos. All very generous portions and delicious. This was matched with some nice... More

Bilthoven is small upmarket, villa rich town just outside of Utrecht and Ripassa is a great relief from suburbia with a cozy atmosphere, a half open kitchen but most importantly a rich Italian menu with a good variety of dishes. Kids get their own menu. Staff are welcoming, friendly and certainly knowledgable. Definite one to try!

If you are on the area of Utrecht, but want to stay out of town, try this restaurant in Bilthoven. I have Been at Ripassa a few times over the past year. Whoever wants to enjoy the Italian kitchen, eat delicious food combined with good-quality wines, should consider to pay them a visit. One point of criticism: they seem to... More
