I absolutely love Italian food, it doesn’t matter what kind of food, but I just love how the flavors are combined in the Italian cuisine. Pizza is one of the things that is a real treat for me. I don’t eat it often, but when I do, I enjoy it to the maximum. That’s why I was so exited when I heard about the opening of Sugo in the Aaert van Nesstraat in my hometown Rotterdam. Sugo sells pizza slices, so no whole round pizza’s, making it easier to have to either have just one slice for lunch, or try multiple pizza’s for dinner!
The Italian cuisine is one of my favorites, so Italian restaurants are often the ones of my choice. Lately, I was searching for a place to have lunch in Rotterdam and I found Giuliano at the Meent. I had never heard of this place before, but the reviews on the Internet were all so positive that I knew I had to go there.
Giuliano is only open for lunch, between 11.00 and 17.00 o’clock. You can get all kinds of Italian sandwiches, soups and salads. Varying from a Bistecca (slow-cooked beef rib) to Pastrami, to Polpettone (Italian meatloaf) to Gallo (warm chicken), all of the descriptions of the sandwiches on the menu sound amazing! Of course they also make traditional sandwiches like mozzarella or salami. Most of the dishes are under 10 euros, which is a fair price for me. What I liked about Giuliano as well, is that they design a new signature dish each year. This shows to me that they want to keep experimenting and improving their formula.
