The food is goos , buuuut the organization is bad:slow, do not know how to communicate to their clients. We were waiting for more than one hour, they were avoiding us and finaly got the explanation they are too busy and the chef is alone. If they were honest in the beggining we could have order an appetizer or anything... More

I'll just copy my answer that I posted on a different review platform website, since it is the same review. ---- It saddens me to read this and I am really sorry you had a bad experience. If I remember correctly the starter did unfortunately take too long, even for an oven dish. The main course, though, did follow a... More

Good quality genuine Italian cooking, freshly prepared and served with a smile. Established family restaurant very close to Naarden-Bussum railway station has been there for 15 years but the decoration is modern and light. Has a great range of pizza's made on the premises - try the Grande Selene special. I went for the veal scallops done in the oven... More

We have eaten here twice in one week. Both times the food was great, whether it was pizza or pasta. You could taste the Italian roots of the kitchen team. The only difference in those two dinners was the speed of the service. The first time it was really good and nice, the second time it was slow and stressed.... More

Really the best pizza. Thin bottom made in charcoal oven. Completely sliced and very simple to handle. Good taste

Thank you so much for your kind review. Though it is actually a (custum-build) wood-fired oven. More

Close to the railway station of Naarden Bussum you will find a great italian restaurant. Excellent meat dishes, delicious pizza. I've been here around 7 times and every time I've tried something new. I was never disappointed. Service though usually is (very) slow. If you're not in a hurry that's fine. Worth the visit and try!

Proper Italian cuisine served by very nice personnel. They always have time for a little chat and good advice. The chief cook is of the genuine Italian good-mood type. Price / quality is very good. The 'ossenhaas', although perhaps not the most Italian dish, is of constant high quality. The entourage is not business-like, more family, but I would not... More

After the devastating fire, which completelyb destroyed the restaurant a few years ago, Grande Selene has risen from the ashes and is back to it's usual combination of great choice (especially pizzas), excellent food, nice wines and friendly service at reasonable prices. I hope the neighbours will be more carefull with lighting their candles in the future......

A little piece of Italy in the centre of Bussum.

Indulge, and let yourself and your companions be treated to a fantastic dinner and a great evening in Grande Selene. Our pizzas are baked in our new wood fired oven for that authentic taste. And of course our team is here to make your evening one to remember. Since we find family important, we would like the whole family to enjoy themselves, young and old. Thus for the kids we have a playroom where they can play to their heart’s content.

A warm welcome
