What a gem of a place! Tucked away from the main street, you will find this deli style restaurant. Choose the fresh pastas in the display counter, then which sauce to put with it. Don't forget the salad-also custom designed, super fresh with nuts & seeds, chunks of great italian cheese, whatever you want! The staff are really nice, and... More

Unfortunately I haven't much good to say about the food at this place. The pasta was doughy and overcooked. I know they take pride in making their own pasta but the result is not stellar. The moisture is too high and it results in globby sticky and heavy pasta. The sauce was not visible and had little flavour to it... More

Honestly one of the best places to eat in Leiden. The interior is rather minimalist, but that is more than made up for by the truly excellent food. The owners are very friendly and know their stuff.

The place looks nice and very informal. Its prices are not "informal" though, even by Dutch standards.

Good food and great coffee right in the heart of the city, near the Burcht. The people who helped me were only fluent in Italian, not so good in English but this wasn't a problem really: I got what I ordered and most of all I got a great smile from the person serving me!

The atmosphere is simple, but the service and the food make up for it !! Really kind service, and excellent pasta - not expensive at all ! This is definitely a restaurant you can't miss in Leiden !

As a lover of Italian food, Bocconi looked promising to me. The place looks nice and cosy but unfortunately the place is overrated and overpriced. Besides that, some of the staff is super uninterested, unfriendly and prefer smoking outside over attending clients. It is as if the staff is forced to work there against their will. I will not return... More

Best freshly made pasta and lasagna in Leiden, perhaps even in the Netherlands. Feeling lucky to have such a great place in my hometown

The food was excellent. The place is basic and clean. It has some nice touches to make the atmosphere inviting. The people working were nice for the most part, but one gal just looked so unhappy. I felt like she hated our family from the moment we entered. I am rarely that uncomfortable, but even when we smiled at her,... More
