Description: Gianfranco, de chef-kok en naamgever van dit ‘ristorante’ is een geboren en getogen Italiaan. Hij is opgegroeid op het eiland Sardinië in de Middellandse Zee, vanwaar hij zijn liefde voor verse ingrediënten en in het bijzonder vis vandaan heeft. En natuurlijk, zou hij ook geen Italiaan zijn, als ook ‘di Mama’ geen rol in de ontluikende liefde voor het bereiden van maaltijden heeft gespeeld.

I went to this restaurant to attend a birthday party - and wow was I impressed! The service is really very sweet and hospitable - and wait I am coming to the food! It was beyond yum! I took a bite of the Quattro Fromaggi pizza from my neighbor - and I almost reached heaven! (part of it could also be because I haven't touched cheese in a long time lol) But generally Quattro Fromaggi pizzas are so cheesy and weird tasting - this one was just right - and the pizza did not get soggy from all the cheese by the end of it. I had ordered for pasta with a side of potatoes and beans - absolutely gorgeous! Especially the potatoes!
I'd have to say that their portion sizes are slightly disappointing - so probably better to stick to pizzas if you're really hungry :P :P
A few people ordered steaks - they scarfed theirs down without any complaint - so am guessing that was good too.
Also I must mention that their prices are quite reasonable - especially if you're doing a takeout :)
The atmosphere and the decor are super chill :) and relaxed - a great find - I shall come again for sure

Started with a fabulous glass of red wine Bardolino, and the antipasti one portion (served for 2) more than very well sized and with so good food : crab salad, salami and ham with home made italian roast bread ... dry tomatoes ... chips of cucumber ... 3 plates of antipasti ... and the main course came after : delicious involtini and a pizza home made ... with fresh ham, mozzarella, red onions ... we feel like in Italy with the nice ambiance and italian style decoration ... this is a place to be for sure when you want a real italian experience ... in Rotterdam

We had a nice good typically Italian dinner.
In a fine atmosphere with 12 people.
The restaurant was fully occupied.

Waitresses we polled and good at what they do.

Taste of the food was great.

It wa good quality, the ossobuco was very nice and also good wine was served although they could have had a broader selection of wines. The fish was also fresh and good. The taste was a little bit too adapted to Dutch taste, we were served potatoes.
Lamb in bread was very cool!!

After several months we visited Da Gianfranco again. Fortunately the air problem has been solved now, so dining here is much more comfortable now. Both starters (muschrooms with blue cheese, fish soup) were very tasty. The main courses (pasta vongole, pizza) were quite okay. Small minor point is that it took them over 30 minutes to take up the order for drinks. It indeed was a busy night (several people arrived without reservation and were accommodated), but apparently too busy for the staff.....
