“Authentic Italian - Recommended.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Arrived late in Haarlem, staying at a guest house virtually across the street from Napoli.
From the time you walk in you sense that this is a well run restaurant with a lovely atmosphere.
All staff spoke good English and very obliging.
My son and I both had pasta dishes, both very good.
I ordered a side salad with my pasta, which on arrival was huge and of very good quality..!
Service was very prompt, albeit they weren't full at the time.
Recommended.

“One of the best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

I love to visit this restaurant as they have the best Italian food I have ever experienced. While in Haarlem we eat here often & may I recommend the pasta Parmesana, which is paste cooked in a Parmesan wheel at your table, it's my favourite. The food & drinks are very well priced.

“Mediocre at a high price.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

I recently visited Haarlem again after 40 years to see family, and took them for a meal to this restaurant and although it has still the same owners the food quality and service was not the same.
Firstly the wait staff are abrupt and rude at some instances especially if your a tourist, secondly one of the meals served was wrong no apology or we will fix it up, no laugh it it of and we will late the staff know about the stuff up.all the good memories I had from this restaurant are gone because of inconsiderate staff, get some people skill training because that was not the way to treat your customers.

“Great place lovely staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

We ate here on our last night in Haarlem, the hotel said it was average and overrated, forget it, it was fantastic. The staff could not do enough to make us feel welcome. The food was excellent.
All in all a great night out. Would certainly go again.
Try the pasta sauce, it comes in a whole parmesan flamed and prepared at the table. Magic.

“Good for the show”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Like the review below says, there is a lot of theatre here. Lots of preparing things at tables, dramatic flourishes of herbs, quick flashes of flames, great steaming pots of pasta and shell fish rolled to tables on dinner trolleys and served up there and then for the guests. It's a fun place!

The food is not bad as well, although distinctly average for an Italian. All the pasta is made fresh, so they didn't have my first choice left by 8pm on a Saturday night and I ended up opting for the veggie pizza. It was quite bland, but that was probably because there was too much mozzarella and not enough tomatoes and herbs and other tasty seasoners.I tried one of my Mum's gorganzola and pear stuffed pasta pieces - excellent. The bolognaise was a bit bland, so was the seafood pizza. Nothing blew anyone's socks off (except for the olives - OHHHH they were good!) , but it was all quite pleasant. Although i've given it just 3 dots, I'd go back.
