Good italian food funny staff. Good atmosfeer.

It is at a the main road from Voorschoten to Leiden. Public parking is available. The waitress was not very good with Dutch, English was a bitt beter. But my Italian sucks. Nevertheless. Actually there is no choice or menu. You eat what you get. And that is explained by the waitress. The food is in... read more

The other restaurants were full, so we ended up finding this great Sicilian Restaurant. From the moment you walk in you genuinely welcome, it's like walking into someone's home in Sicily. The menu is written on a board and is passionately described by hostess. The open kitchen allows direct contact with the chefs. You can see you food being prepared,... More

We went to La Donnafugata last night for dinner. When we walked in - not just the hostess but even the waiters and the chefs. It made us feel instantly welcomed. There is no menu but they have the evening offerings displayed on the wall. They cook from whatever is fresh and best that day. A complementary aperitif made an... More

Went here for the second time last night, and it was just as good as the first. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the food is excellent and a reasonable price.

Went there for my birthday dinner. The food here is amazing. The restuarant is pretty small and you have a view of the cooking area - quite rustic. There's an outside area that was closed up and heated. We sat there. The restuarant was packed. We choose a selection of the chef's choices and it was the best decision. He... More

Very warm staff and competent. Also you get special dishes outside normal menu at no extra cost. Very typical Sicilian cuisine with ingredients directly imported by the restaurant. Also very good wine .

Definitely one of the best (if not THE best) Italian restaurant we've ever gone to. You have the option of having a table d'hôte menu with a variety of "tapas"-like servings or you can have something off their menu of the day. We went for the table d'hôte and each of us had something to enjoy. It was a special... More

Ever since it first opened a few years ago, it has never let me down. It is, in my 8-year experience in the country as an Italian expat, the best to be found around, closely competing with some of the best places I know back home. On top of the excellent food, albeit sometimes pricey, is an atmosphere so special... More

Wow! On my first trip to the Netherlands I was taken to this beautiful restaurant. The people I were staying with have been there many times and are well known by the owners. I have a absolute love for Italian food and this was something else completely. You can tell they only use the best food possible, the tastes are... More
