My son and daughter in law come here every time they visit us from the States and love it. This time we went there all together and since that time we've been back for more. You can enjoy a real flat bottom pizzacrust here the four cheeses is great, so is the calzone. Ibrahim runs the place by himself and... More

What a great place, busy but we were given the window seat. Owner/manager served us excellent food pizza and pasta. Wine was cheap for the Netherlands and food delicious. The bill was a pleasant surprise 35 euros for 3! We tipped well! Would recommend a visit

Very fresh ingredients, great sauce and pizzas made by hand in an open kitchen suggest prices to match. Black Beauty is thus unbelievable value - a vegetarian pizza including artichokes and olives was €7.50, and home-made ravioli the same price. The owner works prodigiously hard - cooking, waiting and clearing, but despite this service was swift and friendly. The decor... More

We dined there twice during a four-night stay in Haarlem. We went early in the evening when there were few other diners. We sat near the window to see the world go by. The food (we had pizzas and pasta) was good, as was the service. The house wine is OK. Overall this restaurant is very good value.

Paying €6.50 for a home fresh stone baked pizza in 2016 is an absolute steal. Especially when it is as good as these!! Pair that with a glass of drinkable wine for €2.50 and you walk away feeling like you've had fantastic value for money. As the previous reviews state, the owner is the chef, waiter, barman, cleaner and everything... More

Situated next to another Italian restaurant with more aggressive hosts, this, admittedly somewhat run down Pizza/Pasta place has to work hard for its customers. They do! The owner is very charming, he set the prices low(knows all the courses, ingredients and prices by heart), service is real fast and the food is excellent! If you can see through the weary... More

This restaurant appears to be run by one man, who is waiter and chef. We both enjoyed the pasta dishes that we ordered, which were cooked in the open kitchen, accompanied by a litre of wine. All pizzas and pastas are 6 Euros, which is very reasonable, although our experience was spoilt a little as the wine was not good... More

As I write these lines, I am currently an Erasmus student in Haarlem for a few months, so it gave me (and my fellow abroad friends) time to discover a few places in this lovely city. Black Beauty is a nice place if you are on a budget, you can eat nice pizzas for friendly prices like 6€50 or 7€50... More

This place is really run down, the decoration and furniture is hideous, and apparently they have a sign outside claiming they do the best pizza in town, and since Haarlem is a city I don't know which town they are referring to. The chair I sat on was falling apart. There was one man doing everything (cooking, cleaning, serving) so... More

Haarlem is a visual treasure, really one of our favorite days. The train station is rehabbed and looks gorgeous, not run down and filthy like some of the other places we saw. Their are flowers hanging everywhere and the city has a positive lively vibe to it. It's busy, but not overwhelming and pushy. As dinner time approached, I searched... More
