This restaurant is just a few steps from the Rotterdam Central Station. Staff is very friendly and the cuisine is authentic italian. No pizza' s here, but only traditional italian appetizers and main courses. Everything is served with a smile and taste delicious. Most staff speaks only Italian and English. This family run restaurant is only open on weekdays!

I first visited this restaurant about 4 years ago being introduced to Raf and Fina by a friend. I went there this week as I was in Rotterdam for a conference. They were fully booked but accommodated me by the bar (which was fine for me) and my reward was a great meal in a super atmosphere. Be sure to... More

Very good food - and super service. Nice wine. The 'special' filet mignon with mozzarella is really an experience. Thanks.

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
