There is always a reason to eat out. Below we share five nice eateries in the centre of Rotterdam, located on Karel Doormanstraat, Lijnbaan and Westewagenstraat.

1. O'Pazzo

O'Pazzo Schouwburg has been open for a few weeks now on the corner of Karel Doormanstraat and Kruiskade. Guests can expect the same authentic Neapolitan experience here as at the renowned O'Pazzo on Mariniersweg, with an equally artistic pizza oven.

As a pizza lover you've come to the right place and there is always something new to discover, because O'Pazzo always keeps experimenting with creative new pizzas. In addition to pizza, they have delicious starters here, and fish, meat and vegetarian dishes are also on the menu. Enjoy delicious Italian food!

2. SUE

SUE is a household name in Rotterdam. Here you can get delicacies that are sugar-free, gluten-free, lactose-free, raw and vegan. So do you want to eat something without feeling guilty? Then you've come to the right place. For example, choose the popular SUE bites, cakes or bars.

Pick up the SUE bites or other sweet treats to eat at home or take a seat in SUE's minimalist store. This is also an excellent place for breakfast or lunch.

Furthermore, they are affiliated with Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN), an organization that guarantees the quality and authenticity of Neapolitan pizza. So it is certain that they serve good pizzas here.
