The food is good and simple. Unfortunately twice there has been a problem with money here - both times with the same woman (owner, manager?). Asked for my change back from paying the bill (in both cases way too much change for a fooie, a tip) and she declined to do so. So, sadly - not going back ever again.... More

The building this restaurant is in looks brand new, and the facade might make you think that this is some chain or quickly thrown-together restaurant, but it is not that at all. It has actually been there for two decades, and is run by a family. There is continuous warm banter amongst all those that work there. They do traditional... More

Has become a regular haunt. Strange because the view is of the station and some of the food is 'interpretive' but the staff are charming and helpful and food always tasty. Sometimes a local interpretation of Italian but good. Pasta always pleased. Last weeks lamb cutlets delicious.

first visit in Rotterdam and near the Manhattan hotel...we didn't book but luckily only had to wait 20mins for a free table :) food was so tasty (risotto), wine smooth & rich (a beautiful sicilian wine) in a very friendly service from a passionate brother and sister - over 20 years in Rotterdam. Will defo go back and can't wait.

Local favourite for a long time. Hadn't been in at least one year, but service and food still great when I recently ate there again. Reservations a must as the place is always packed during lunch and dinner.Closed during the weekends, so be aware in order to avoid disappointments. Starters are tuna carpaccio, bruschetta or salad. Simple yet tasteful dishes.... More

I went there again this week for a business lunch, and the place remains my favorite. Very convenient to our office near the central station, this small, family run Sicilian restaurant is one of the few places I trust to have an Italian meal outside Italy, leaving very little to adaptation to local taste. Their selection of appetizers, first and... More

Visited this place yesterday, because of the great recommendations on tripadvisor. But it turned out to be a very bad decision to go there! Had to wait for 25 minutes to get a table, even with a booking. We had carpaccio with tuna/radiccio as startet and a spaghetti/ravioli as main course. All 4 dishes were of bad quality(cheap ham, tomatoes,... More
