Restaurant with a long tradition in centre of Arnhem. It has a secluded city garden, probably the best in Arnhem. Ideal for outside dining. Certainly worthwhile going there.

I had dinner here with my family, we are Italian and we struggle to find a restaurant that makes food as it was in Italy and not adapted to local tastes. We enjoyed the food. Also they have a good number of dishes that are gluten free.

The very best Italian restaurant in town! In summer you can sit on their wonderful terrace. On a sunny evening you feel as if you are in Italy . It is full with plants, a real green atmosphere . The food is excellent!

I love the food here every time and the staff is very friendly and good at what they do and know! I would especialy recommend dining in the enclosed gardens in the summer; and having the bread (focus) appetizer (always)!

The restaurant is inside an old house with different types of old rooms. Rustic is the good adjective; not modern not old, just rustic (some places needed some maintenance, like the toilets in some walls). But ok, you go to a restaurant to eat. And the food was super good! Nice and simple tastes and good portions (not pretentious petite... More

This restaurant has formal and informal dining rooms and serves some of the best Italian food in the area. We always had a great food so we don't understand some of the complains about the quality varying. The restaurant still exists after decades, which tells much about the quality.

Set in the main part of Arnhem close to the shops. Warmly welcoming staff who were attentive throughout. A good and varied menu with some specials of the day as well. I started with a great selection of antipasti and then had guinea fowl as the main course. There was a good selection of desserts but I was only able... More

Fabulous and very attentive staff. We were a group of 12 that did not have reservations, but walked in off the street. Even though the restaurant was very busy, they put together a large table for us in minutes and away we went. I personally had the special that evening, which was a beef dish, done absolutely wonderfully. The manager... More

Nice Italian restaurant in Arnhem. I visited other restaurants in Arnhem during some years and I'm glad to finally have found one that suits me. The Vitello Tonato was correct but could have used some more capers. The steak of the house was perfect and so was the pannacota. The Barbera d'Alba was quiet pricey.

On the 24th of April we have visited this Italian restaurant. The tomato soup was fantastic. The lobster with pasta was almost unbelievable. What a super dinner we had.
