Sebastian celebrates Italian food culture and hospitality

In the heart of Nine Streets you will find Sebastian, an Italian restaurant that embodies simplicity, comfort and culinary sophistication. Overlooking the wood-fired oven, which immerses each guest in an authentic cooking experience, Sebastian reflects the true Italian food culture where passion and care for each dish are central.


Upon entering Sebastian, the ambiance is immediately felt. The interior is a subtle nod to classic Italian aesthetics combined with modern influences, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. The decor emphasizes simplicity and style, perfectly matching the dishes that come to the table.

Sebastian's menu is an ode to Italian cuisine, featuring both traditional and innovative dishes. Each recipe is carefully crafted from the finest Italian produce and seasonal ingredients. From handmade pastas, and perhaps the best pizza in town, to freshly prepared antipasti, each dish is a testament to the love of Italian cooking.

Owner Joshua van Santen emphasizes the restaurant's vision: "Here we celebrate the Italian way of life, where sharing delicious moments with good company is paramount."

Guests especially praise the quality of the dishes, which are presented in an attractive but modest manner. The open kitchen adds to the experience, where guests can follow the meticulous preparation of their meal. All this makes Sebastian not only a place for a romantic dinner, but also an excellent choice for a night out with friends or a business lunch.


"In a city where choice is huge, Sebastian stands out as an authentic representative of Italian cuisine. It is a place where tradition and innovation merge, where every visit feels like a short vacation to Italy," Van Santen said. "At Sebastian, we don't just welcome you, we invite you to be part of something special."
