We just had a Boxing Day dinner with family. It was super good, the people were very friendly and the food was super. The restaurant is situated near the shopping area of the town, with plenty of place to park Tour car. It's a trendy Italian restaurant in Bilthoven. The prices are ok.

The meal itself was average. I began with the halibut which was very salty, then had the tournedos. The meat itself was good quality but it came with just the pan juices (bland flavor) and a real mish-mash of veg (zucchini, tomato, a cauliflower stalk, one chanterelle mushroom and some cabbage) which was messy and seemed like the chef was...

I went here with a work group - 15 people. It was wonderful! Tasty, fresh Italian food in a beautiful setting. The service was excellent and the staff incredibly friendly. Will definitely return!

Wonderful food, with merely Italian orientation. It's a lovely, modern and elegant restaurant on a central location (near to the station, in the center of Bilthoven, near Utrecht) and the ambiance is super and the staff is very friendly. It's not really cheap, but it's worth while.

We have been here many times and it is always a pleasure to enjoy the excellent food and delicious wines. The restaurant is located very close to the railway station, only a minute walking. It's not easy to choose since all starters and pasta's are great, especially the pasta with mushrooms and truffle oil. Nice but limited (so always fresh)... More

This is really one of the best restaurants in the Netherlands. The menu contains both classic Italian / Sicilian (like arancini) and innovative dishes. Always with a mediterranian touch. The chef uses top products. You can see and taste that every dish has been prepared with utmost care and professionalism. The menu is not that big, but there is enough... More

I recently had a fine meal at this location. Unlike the heavy handed fare you get in a typical Italian restaurant in NY , Ripassa's menu is fresh , innovative complemented by a good selection of wine . The menu and wine list are not extensive but the choices all seemed top notch . A stylish decor and unobtrusive service... More

Upmarket Italian cooking, the menu is limited but has sufficient options. You also can choose for a 2 or 3 course menu at a fixed price. Our group was into meat that evening and we various dishes like vitello tonnato, carpaccio and for main deer steaks and tournedos. All very generous portions and delicious. This was matched with some nice... More

Bilthoven is small upmarket, villa rich town just outside of Utrecht and Ripassa is a great relief from suburbia with a cozy atmosphere, a half open kitchen but most importantly a rich Italian menu with a good variety of dishes. Kids get their own menu. Staff are welcoming, friendly and certainly knowledgable. Definite one to try!
