Of course Guliano’s should not be missing from this list. It’s a favourite lunch spot for many people in Rotterdam! That’s why you often have to stand in line to get a table at their location on the Meent, especially at lunchtime. But it’s definitely worth it!

At Guliano’s in Rotterdam you can eat the tastiest Italian sandwiches, made in a New York style. On their menu you’ll find, among other things, the delicious truffle egg salad sandwich or the sandwich special Nero Malto with buffalo mozzarella, parmesan cheese, arugula, sun-dried tomato and pesto.
