“Great atmosphere, great food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

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 was delicious. I also have to thank the owners for presenting me with one of their beautiful wine glasses when I was leaving. Great touch!

“It doesn't get much more Italian than this family run spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

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 ordered beef carpacchio for a starter and it was really nice. Drizzled with some olive oil and balsamic and a bit of salad. When I received my fish, it also came with a small side salad and a bread plate of pasta with olive oil. Just enough and perfectly seasoned.

Will definitely add this to my list of restaurants when I'm visiting Rotterdam.

“Small, family business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Try to get a seat, better make a reservation.
The place is always packed.... Great food... They don't do pizza, but real nice pasta and others.

“a great place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

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 was very old and not that pleasant but I would definitely recommend this place for lunch...

“Very nice, very Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

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).
