Honestly Good Sardinian Cooking

In the picturesque Sint Jacbosstraat in Leeuwarden is this pleasant and comfy restaurant; it's quite long and narrow back to the kitchen so the waiters must be dead tired after their fine and timely service! Friendly and efficient reception and seating. We had a nice table right at the window and... read more

Absolutely stunning decor, very pleasant, friendly and efficient staff accompanied by absolutely delicious food. 5* from me and I would highly recommend! One of the best Italian restaurants that I've ever been to around the world.

This place is worth the name 'Trattoria'. It has great Italian food and the staff is very friendly. They are also friendly to kids!

The restaurant looks lovely, not overly decorated with every italian themed decorations there exists. The staff is friendly, they all speak Italian, but also moderate English and Dutch. They have an open kitchen, which I always consider a good sign. The food is good, some dishes are even great (especially the pastas) but some are too expensive for what you... More

The staff is helpful and nice although it might seem a bit rude at first or at least not very warm. The food is great, the Lambrusco wine is a delight. Definitely a nice place to spend the evening.

The food is great, however the menu is only in Dutch !!! Some of the prices within the menu do not respond to the actual dish (in terms of quality and quantity) !! The staff is really nice !!

I visited Leeuwarden with my wife and three young children and needed a place for an early dinner. As we entered we were given the most amazing welcome. Having three young children was no problem and they made sure the kids were fed quick allowing mom and dad to enjoy a couple of glasses of wine. The Pizza was a... More

According to Italians the best spot in Leeuwarden for Italian dining and I can only agree. Very good range of antipasti, great pizzas and pastas. The level of cooking is not matched by the serving staff unfortunately during my most recent visit: not exactly friendly, long waiting times, no assistance with menu translation for English-speaking guests (no English menu available)...
