Excellent Italian restaurant, great food preparation, on some dishes the doses might vary from time to time, but apart from that, great quality matching the price.

We came back after 10 years. The food is still the reason to come here. Don't mind the 70ties interior. The service is not Italian, the people didn't find the right approach and our waiter was topping up our glasses too often, which felt unpleasant. We missed the Italian hospitality.

As a true Italy lover is this The Place To Be in Arnhem for a real and pure Italian experience, Italian family runned restaurant in the heart of Arnhem with the strange Italian "customer firendly" attitude serves the best Italian food ever. Traditional Italian interior just make you fell as in Italy

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.
