There are many Italian restaurants in Amsterdam, I am not talking about the pizzerias! This one is in the trendy Jordan area and quite small, modern and cosy. Good for an evening out. Food is above average but not realy gourmand. Choice is great and ingredients superior. Also nice Italian wine list but the Montepulciano d´Abruzzo by the glass is... More

My husband and I taking opportunity to explore different restaurants in the Jordaan area in Amsterdam. We went to this Italian restaurant called Assaggi. Relatively cozy environment, really Italians serving and Italian radio on. I had a carbonara pasta and my husband had a Saltimboca a la Romana. Our food was not bad, but not great either. The service was... More

About a 10-12 minute walk from Hotel Pulitzer. Near other good restaurants including La Oliva, a tapas restaurant, right down the street. We have had great outside dining experiences here but we were in the mood to linger, drink wine etc. The length of the dinner was almost laughable one of the evenings but it was ok with us (Could...

Yes, and it's well worth the trek off the beaten path. Good creative food and service. Pasta like Mama used to make.

The food here was excellent. The restaurant is a bit out of the way but the service was friendly, cheerful and attentive, and the atmosphere welcoming and convivial. Although the decor is nothing to write home about, there was a positive and friendly vibe in this restaurant. We ended up chatting and laughing with the waiter and with the couple... More

My first impression while waiting for a table was that the cocktails we ordered were excellent...not always the case in Amsterdam. The servers were attentive and Italian, and although the food was good, not top-notch. Overall it was an enjoyable restaurant, and I would definitely return if I was in the neighborhood.

We stumbled upon this place in the Jordaan on a Friday night. It was busy but they squeezed us into a table for 2 with no reservation. The eggplant starter I had was delicious, real comfort food. The main courses were also good but I have to give them a black mark for the price of their wine list. We... More

Found two hairs in my very under-cooked pasta dish, generally terrible eating experience. There are so many other great restaurants both in this cozy neighborhood and in Amsterdam, so don't waste your time going to this one.
