“Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I really wasn't sure what to expect from Lux but having dined there recently, I can only recommend the place! The restaurant is light and airy, with a beautiful outside seating option in the summer. My partner ordered the octopus and ginger risotto for starters and we shared some antipasti whilst waiting for it to be freshly prepared. Antipasti were excellent, it's difficult to only choose 7 from the wonderful selection of homemade dishes! Main courses were equally delicious, simply prepared with high quality ingredients. Service was kind and thoughtful and we thought the meal was really good value for the quality of the food. We will definitely be going back...

“Great Italian food !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

After a new owner (the chef) took it over, part of the old restaurant was closed, the tables were put further away from each other and the result is an even better place to go for dinner. What stayed was the great food and great service and now with more space and less packed it is great !

Nice choice of starters with a cart full of fresh antipasti to choose from (4 or 7 choices on a plate) and also other starters you can choose from. Everyday fresh fish with the fish of the day and with great desserts this is definitely one of the better Italian restaurants in the area.

Great service from the very friendly lady who is in charge of in the dining area. Excellent knowledge of the food, great pairing with the wine (we had a beautiful Primitivo, to die for....) and last but not least a very friendly bill, we paid little bit over 200 euro with 5 persons with a bottle of red wine, 2 bottles of sparkling water and most of us had dessert as well, no coffee however.

No complaints here, great place, parking is not always easy and the neighbourhood is not the most beautiful there is, but that is the only thing against. Cannot go wrong here.....

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012 via mobile

A very reasonably priced Italian restaurant - good food- attentive staff - a relaxed atmosphere with tables just far enought apart to feel private and just close enought together to feel part of the crowd

“An Italian dinner as it should be!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

For a good dinner in a rather informal atmosphere at a really reasonable price, LUX is the place to go. It's my favorite eating spot in Rotterdam. My rating is similarly favorable as the previous one, 11 months ago.
