We went to this restaurant in september 21. Like the title says, it´s a "good italian but the service is better than the food". The food was ok with no great remark, the wine was very good and the service was very good too.

Attractive restaurant in a great location. Good but not the best Italian food I've tried. Service average for The Netherlands. We had to go up to the bar to pay the bill after waiting ages. The tiramisu is not to be missed though - it was the best I've ever had!

We arrived without a reservation and we're greeted warmly and seated straight away. Quick with menus and drinks while we decided what to eat. Lovely soft focaccia bread with black olive tapenade bursting with freshness were served up and we're you're hungry this is much appreciated! We ordered the tomato soup (with more bread) and the prawns cooked in fresh... More

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
