Bella Italia - Ristorante & Pizzeria

Reviewed By jannekeswereld - Groningen

At Bella Italia you will not be disappointed as it comes to food and service and value for your money. The menu has a wide variety of choice also people with allergies or vegetarians can enjoy a great meal here. Nice pastas, pizzas and also meat and fish dishes. They serve house wines but you can also choose from the 'recommended wines'.
The service is kind.
Lots of people know the way to this fine restaurant so most of the time it is really busy. I think in the weekends, it would be recommended to make a reservation.

Bella Sardegna

Reviewed By Hendrik_NL - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

The Italian restaurant Bella Sardegna profiles itself as a real Italian restaurant on their web site; the restaurant exists since 1981. Sitting in the restaurant you observe the open kitchen; Italian is spoken by the staff. Why is it that in the Netherlands the "Italian" in the Italian restaurants is on the surface only; Bella Sardegna is no exception. The fact that Italian speaking staff is present in the kitchen makes the disappointment for customers who are familiar with Italian culture even more profound. To summarize: No table cloth on the table, not even place mats. Standard the pizzas in Bella Sardegna are made with Edam cheese. When you penetrate this secret and ask for mozzarella, you are charged an additional 2 Euros for the privilege, which in Italy is basic pizza preparation. Furthermore, salami is routinely substituted by an inferior Dutch variety, called "cervelaat". The "Saltimbocca Romana" I ordered was a very casual interpretation of the original recipe. Yes, there was meat in the dish, and ham and somewhere sage, but I am sorry, but it was nowhere near what I have enjoyed in Italy. For dessert, the ice cream seemed a bit off and the panna cotta was no show stopper. Where I have to compliment the restaurant was with the excellent service. As value for money, that is always a problem in the Netherlands even if you can look back on a satisfactory meal, so I can't recommend Bella Sardegna on that point either.

De Vlindertuin

Reviewed By traintraveller07 - Rome, Italy

In a very attractive space in an old building in Zuidlaren (between Assen and Groningen) this was an excellent meal. We did the menu, 6 courses. The fish courses were exceptional, and the one veal course we had was also perfect, with superb preparation, combinations of flavors, presentation and freshness. Service was friendly and informal. The relationship of price to quality is excellent. A very few constructive comments for improvement: We had an aperitivo and were offered various interesting amuses-bouche but it took an hour for the service of the menu courses to begin to appear, and it appeared to us rightly or wrongly that our table was placed into a cycle with another table, of 8 covers, next to us, which arrived a bit later. The offered wine pairings which 2 of our party of 5 ordered were a weak point: 3 whites and a red (I did half glasses) were disappointing, three of them undistinguished Spanish and South African selections. One Alsatian Reisling was interesting as was a Portuguese Duoro dessert wine which tasted like an aged Marsala. I would advise diners who love good wine to just work with the wine list. A Dutch-only menu will be unhelpful as this restaurant justly attracts more non-local diners. Good luck to them--well done.

De Groene Lantaarn

Reviewed By Harm-Jan W - Erica, Drenthe, Netherlands

And old farmhouse on a cross-roads in the fields houses this Michelin star restaurant, so you know you are getting great food and ambiance. The farmhous certainly does not disappoint in atmosphere. But everything is still very spacious.
The food was , ofcourse, excellent, with lots of flavours, and great presentation. And they were not small either. There were good size portions.
The staff however seemed very eager to immediately take empty plates away. It seemed a bit as if they were in a rush to get rid of us. And some of the presentation I found a bit far fetched. To serve butter, on top of a rock? A gimmick, which the restaurant does not need in my opinion. But stil, a very enjoyable dinner, and certainly one of the best meals I have had (up to now)

Steakhouse Goodfella's

American steakhouse We are an American steakhouse with a decor from the 70's. All this is put in a modern jacket. Enjoy delicious casual steaks and ribs and fish. Also spare ribs and vegetarian are not missing on the map. The warm interior invites you to have a nice evening out of time!

Reviewed By Papito1 - Spring, Texas

Good atmosphere, good service, Reservations recommended on Friday and Saturday. Not a bad eating experience, my wife had the pork kabob with ribs, which were good. Meats were served on a bed of mashed potatoes with bits of spinach leaf, well presented. Meal came with French Fries, a Salad and another Potato dish (not baked). Couldn’t quite determine the spice used on the second potato dish, but wasn’t to my liking. A baked, with sour cream and chives, potato would have been better. I had the Ribeye, which, unfortunately was not available, but the house was gracious enough to substitute a T- Bone at the same price. T-Bone was a healthy size, and cooked to my request, unfortunately it was a bit chewy. Questioned the waitress and found out that the meats have very little fat content, presumably the reason for being chewy. My recommendation to the cook would be to use a bit of Meat Tenderizer in the future. Also wouldn’t hurt to marinade the steak in either A1 or HP sauce for a few hours for some additional flavor. Had I ordered the T-Bone at its full price I would have been disappointed.
Had the American Onion Soup as a starter and would have preferred a larger chunk of bread, and a bit more cheese. As served, the cheese was spread a bit thin, like morning toast jam, not very thick. Soup had a good flavor though.
Meats were served with a sprinkling of bell peppers. Unfortunately, bell peppers are somewhat unkind to us (later in the evening), and it would have been great had this been mentioned in the menu.
I’d probably return, but go with the Ribs next time.

Touche

Reviewed By Hermes_NL - The Hague, The Netherlands

Touche serve a quite nice surprise menu (from 3 up to 7 courses ...). We enjoyed four courses with a fitting wine arrangement for a reasonable price for this quality. Could sit outside in teh setting sun for the first few hours, and spend more time inside. It was not very busy on a Sunday evening. Would have scored 5 out of 5 if not some dishes had been a bit cold ... the main dish, a nice Entrecote, was however served at nice temperatures. Service very pleasant, perhaps slightly insecure about the wines but no problem. Four hours passed very fast.

Ristorante da Luca

Reviewed By Evert101 - Haren, The Netherlands

Da Luca offers a great dining experience with a unique concept. There is no printed menu and most nights there are 3 choices for main dish. Despite it's limited choice menu we have never been disappointed during our many visits here. With limited choices the food is always very fresh. Owner Stefano knows how to please his guests with a very pleasant atmosphere and being a perfect host. The antipasta is always different and always a delicious start for a culinary journey. The kitchen is not typical Italian as he uses a lot of local ingredients like local beef but it is always served with a Italian touch and flair.
The wines Stefano suggests are mostly from his home place Sicily and always perfect with the meal. Portions ar not very large but plentiful. Prices are excellent.
