The chef is so rude and grumpy. Service is slow. He asked us to pay cash without noticing us before, obviously he doesnt pay taxes and he admitted that! He didnt let us leave together to the bank machine, the atmosphere got tense but we...More

Chef is kind and walks around in the small restaurant. Host/waitress likewise very kind. The food is ok, but nothing more. To fat for my tasting (dribbling around the pasta of which i am not sure was fresh). I think pizza is the best choice...More

Guys don't miss the excellent original and fresh food from our Sicilian cook Franco!!! Eat it in the restaurant but good take-away pizza or any food he prepares for you. Good price quality. Just go there! Cheers Arthur

The best. True food, cooked by the owner himself, who also waits the tables. Nice cosy atmosphere, best food I ever had in an Italian restaurant in The Netherlands. Yes, you have to wait and yes.. it's a relatively simple decorated place. Usually: those are...More

Decor and simple Italian menu seem rather attractive but then once inside, the owner is not too friendly and seems to just keep himself behind his counter whilst the local girl does the work and the talking. Food very bland and owner did not seem...More
