Find out what Italian restaurants to try in Turnhout. Turnhout (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈtʏrnɦʌut]) is a Belgian municipality located in the Flemish province of Antwerp. The municipality comprises only the city of Turnhout proper. On January 1, 2015, Turnhout had a total population of 42,637. The total area is 56.06 km² which gives a population density of 835.5 inhabitants per km². The agglomeration, however, is much larger, accounting up to 81,473 inhabitants. Turnhout is known for its playing card industry, as it houses the head office of the world's largest manufacturer of playing cards, Cartamundi. Turnhout is also the capital of the administrative district with the same name. The Turnhout city council often promotes the city as "the capital of the Kempen area". This designation is entirely unofficial, since the Kempen area is far larger than the Turnhout district and does not form an administrative unit.

Brasserie IL Capriani

We stopped here for lunch as we had business around Turnhout and got hungry. Never been here but it looked nice. It's on the market in Turnhout so the location is quite nice and the restaurant is big and looks attractive.Other than the fact that it looked nice, the rest was a pretty consistent disappointment. It took a while to come take our order, but eventually someone brought menus and eventually someone came to ask what we wanted. Twenty minutes later (!) that person came back and told us that we couldn't both have salads. Apparently a delivery hadn't been done and they could make only one salad... So I switched to pizza instead. Things like that happen, but if it takes you twenty minutes to figure out you can't deliver, there's something wrong.The food took surprisingly long to arrive and meanwhile we didn't even get bread on the table. The people around us did, one of our neighbours almost twice, we had to ask for it. Again, not the end of the world, but it was a nice indication of how sloppy the service was.Unfortunately the food wasn't much better. The salmon salad is salad with large pieces of salmon draped on top - my colleague told me the salmon was completely dried out at the edges. The pizza I had was very, very basic and the crust wasn't properly baked either. Not very tasty to be honest.All in all, the mix of food and service... all of it a disappointment to be honest. I wished we had selected a different place for lunch.

trattoria De Marco

Located in the center of Turnhout, since 2012, trattoria De Marco is a small and cosy Italian establishment where tasty pasta's, typical anti pasti and oven-fresh pizzas are prepared in a basically classic way, but definitely with a personal twist. On wed

Met allerheiligen hebben wij (broers onder elkaar) de gewoonte om in de namiddag of de avond iets te gaan eten en mijn jongste broer stelde voor om Trattoria de Marco in Turnhout uit te proberen en wat ons betreft was dat een schot in de roos! Ik persoonlijk had als voorgerecht bruschetta met vijgen, walnoot, honing en balsamico en als hoofdgerecht spaghetti met tijgergarnalen en pili pili. Het eten was gewoon uitstekend, net zoals de bediening. Supervriendelijk! Het is geen grote zaak: beneden takeaway en boven restaurant. Vele Turnhoutenaren zijn er al vele malen voorbij gewandeld zonder dat het hun opviel en ook ik wist niet eens dat die zaak op de De Merodelei er was. Een verborgen parel zeg maar... Onderling hadden wij al snel besloten dat dit weliswaar onze eerste maar zeker niet onze laatste keer was!

I visited this restaurant for dinner on a business trip and ordered the Tapas to share with my colleague. The food was good and the portions were generous. The service was good too. only thing to note, is that there was no English menu, but the servers were very helpful and guided us through the various courses. Also, we were unable to use our corporate cards so having cash on hand (as always in Europe) was helpful.

Супер ресторан на центральной площади города, правда появился небольшой минус, в пяти метрах сделали автобусную остановку, что в свою очередь создает шум от пассажиров и небольшую загазованность. Сам ресторан имеет очень интересный концепт. Есть веранда, которая находится внутри ресторана. Хорошая европейская кухня и европейская атмосфера. Тут вы можете встретить много бельгийцев. Советую.

Reviewed By Nele W

I had read a lot of good comments on this restaurant, so I was really excited when we went there. It was nothing more than average. The pasta with vegetables I had was too oily, the coffee tasted the same as my grandmother's coffee - like water with a light coffee flavour - and the service was okay, but nothing more than that. Weird thing was when the waitress left, the boss/cook was telling us all about his relationship with his girlfriend - the waitress - and how he wouldn't marry or live in with her in a thousand years... really didn't need that. Wanted him to shut up. We all really wanted to leave but he just kept on talking and talking and talking. Don't think I'll go there again.

My wife and I went to Cucina Marangon as it was near our hotel (Hostellerie Ter Driezen) and recommended by some local people we had met.For the most part, we enjoyed our evening meal however there were a number of disappointments. The good news it the food was reasonably well prepared from high quality ingredients with good presentation. We were not impressed with the very limited selection of wines by the glass (there was one red and one white), though the wine selection by the bottle seemed quite good but expensive in our experience. We were not pleased by our waiter’s insistence that we choose from a multiple choice menu as, when we arrived, we clearly asked if a la carte was available. Of the four evening meals in Turnhout, we ranked this one #3. We felt it was not good very good value for money though it was well prepared. Service was quite friendly but not as good as we had had the prior night at Marché 17.
