“Horrible food & inattentive service”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

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, ...) and not tasty at all. It took way too long till the food was served. The waiter forgot to bring us salt and to clean up our table. They even forgot to bring us the bill - which was honestly way to much for the quality of the food (about 85€). After the visit we just wanted to forget this evening but we couldn't, because we had to stay on the toilette the night ... Overall this place was a bad experience and we would recommend everybody to eat at another place!

“Great atmosphere, great food and great service”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

This place was recommended to us by The Manhattan Hotel and we were not disappointed. Very laid back atmosphere, great service from the owners and very impressed that they managed to find space for a table of 9 at short notice. We started with mixed antipasto followed by either meat or fish dishes. The food was good and the wine was delicious. I also have to thank the owners for presenting me with one of their beautiful wine glasses when I was leaving. Great touch!

“It doesn't get much more Italian than this family run spot”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Was staying at a hotel across the street for business and my colleague recommended the restaurant. It's also right next to the train station. The place is small but is very quaint. The mention is handwritten on a large chalkboard that they drag to your table. I wanted fish and the waitress was very helpful at making suggestions.

I also ordered beef carpacchio for a starter and it was really nice. Drizzled with some olive oil and balsamic and a bit of salad. When I received my fish, it also came with a small side salad and a bread plate of pasta with olive oil. Just enough and perfectly seasoned.

Will definitely add this to my list of restaurants when I'm visiting Rotterdam.

“Small, family business”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Try to get a seat, better make a reservation.
The place is always packed.... Great food... They don't do pizza, but real nice pasta and others.
