Friendly and true Italian food

After a 25 hour flight from Sydney, we arrived here to be warmly greeted and served some of the best Italian food we've had in a long time. Even with a tired 4 yr old they were very accommodating and the value was very very good. Excellent in so many ways. We will be back.

The interior of the restaurant is unpretentious but the tables are set with lovely checked cloths and beautiful crystal wine glasses. The food was outstanding as was the house red. We had three types of pasta and a pizza which were all fresh and beautifully cooked. My grandson of three deemed the gnocchi the best he'd ever eaten and he... More

This is hands-down one of if not the best Italian in Amsterdam. 100% authentic just like mamma used to make is how you would describe the food and if I were actually Italian. A great cozy, fun and friendly atmosphere to enjoy a meal. Be sure to make reservations as it is small and fills up fast. I am so... More

Thank you Giovanni and Carlo for the way you make your visitors at home from the moment they enter "la Cucina". We went there a group of ten including kids and teenagers and we felt like being in a small trattoria in some provincial city of Italy. And as any hidden gem, you have to deserve it. The restaurant is... More

Giovanni & Carlo are unique restauranteurs. They run this place - which has been around the corner from where we lived these past 3 + years - to perfection. Start with the physical space. It is small. It can be a struggle to get in. Reservations are advisable. There'll be people coming and going to pick up their outstanding pizza.... More

Cucina Casalinga was just round the corner from the flat we stayed in in Amsterdam. We decided to give it a try on recommendation from the owner of our flat. It was a good recommendation. The restaurant is tiny. 4 tables. 14 covers maximum. It's like sitting in a very untidy front room. Nothing matches. It's a mess. ... but... More

This little surprise close to the Olympic Stadion in Amsterdam serves one of the best Italian dishes in town. Giovanni serves with passion, every dish is unique and truly fresh. Never tasted such fresh pasta and pizza dough. He has transformed his house into a three table restaurant, so you have to be quick before the tables are full. You... More
