A very very pricey place with not much ambience within. The food was very good upscale Italian food however it wasn't the best food I've ever had. It's almost as if they tried so hard it lost some of its specialness. The service was very nice however they too were not what you would expect in such a pricey restaurant... More

We went to the restaurant late in the evening (10 PM), but there was no problem to have dinner. The pasta was very good, and the salad was nice. Nice italian restaurant in the Jordaan.

We went here with a friend who lives in the Jordaan. I can say the food was great. The entertainment was pretty awesome in terms of people watching. And my husband left his smartphone on our table outside and guess what? the waiter actually kept it overnight for him. We even called the owner really late and night to see... More

Our group really enjoyed both trips to this authentic restaurant, having primo and either pasta/ risotto or a secondi each time. The food very tasty and cooked perfectly, especially the sea bass. The service was very convivial, although on the second night I think the World Cup final slowed things down. We came to this restaurant on the promise of... More

Our meal was terrible. We only ended up here because everything else was closed. The shrimp served as our appetizer were not fresh, meaty or enjoyable. Salted overcooked shrimp. The wild boar with pappardelle was a miniscule portion and the boar tasted awful. The sauce was non-existent, flavorless and the papardelle were short little hunks of pasta. The ravioli in... More

We chose this place by default (our first two choices were closed and one of our party would only eat at Italian restaurants), and were hoping for a good meal based on the four star rating. The service was excellent and our waiter was very friendly, but that was the most enjoyable part of the meal. My children ordered the... More

This place gets mixed reviews. Its genuine italian, with real italians You need a booking. we both had Papardelle with wild boar, with a pear and cheese salad and a bottle of Chianti. Its reasonably expensive, but both the food and the service were good. Its tucked away, in a side street in the Jordan area, if italian is a... More

I found the quality of the food not always matching with the prices listed on the menu, maybe our expectations were too high. The prices are just too expensive the Italian staff is very nice except from one of them... Too poshy for me, but the location in the middle of the Jordaan with view on the Westertoren is beautiful!!
