I had tried this restaurant other times but it was always crowded. Because of the difficulty, I confess that I expected much more. Nothing surprising.

The restaurant itself is very convenient located, just opposite the Central Station. You cannot miss it. Family run, small portions, akward menu board!! Swordfish and pasta in foil paper...a bit bland and impossible to really know if swordfish was in it. Pepper not allowed for this dish, after requested(!), neither parmesano offered!!

This is really a good place to enjoy Italian food, a little bit overpriced but worth the experience. The semifreddo is irresistible. Be warned. Pasta, fish, meat all good.

Very good Italian food. Very authentic. Friendly service. Go for the house wine by carafe. Pretty decent and value for money. The only draw back is the speed of the kitchen and the server's are aware that the wait is abit long.

Heard the restaurant about one month before, but not easy for reservation. finally I tried the food there, should say the taste is really good, maybe the best at least in Rotterdam. Price is not cheap but acceptable, It is not like a restaurant located around train station as usual.

Have had diner there after meeting. Menu was made by our company, but the food was really great. Nice anti pasta as a starter and main was choose between tuna or steak. We all had steak, normaly not my favour, but is was perfect. I would like to eat the steak at least once a week.

A family run restaurant which has been trading for more than 20 years. The friendly greeting and service lead to excellent fresh offerings off the blackboard. Do not forget to see both sides!

I was busy and had lots of luggage. Staff, well owners actually, was very helpful. Food was not great but I did not have time or energy to try, only a fast macaroni. I would advise anyway.

Authentic Italian serving great flavors! We had 3 different starters, all were excellent. we also had 3 different main courses, which were all excellent. We have been to Italy about 50 times, so we know what Italian food should be like. This is it! My starter was sensational. Amazing how many flavors they can create with a few well chosen... More

Had dinner with a colleague the other night at R. A' Proposito. We did not have a reservation and waited patiently at the small bar area for no more than 20-30 minutes. The dinner courses were present on a chalk board and had something for every level of taste or hunger level. Our salads were fresh. Out pasta main courses... More
