Nothing wrong with the pasta.

See there are a few negative comments about the pizza, we only had the pasta so I can tell you that was very nice - happy to eat it all and pay the reasonable price. Good solid food, not fancy but tasty and filling. Service was friend and efficient so we were in and out in no time.

They have remodeled. The restaurant has lost all of its character. White empty walls? My favorite pizza is no longer offered. New menu is kinda expensive. BTW - The pin machine did not work. They could have let us know when we entered. I miss the old place and old staff.

Can't speak for the pizza, but other Italian dishes were pretty good. Tired and hungry, we stopped here our first night in Amsterdam and had a good experience. As previous reviewer wrote, the service was quick and pleasant.

I agonised about the score for this one. Not worth four but better than three. Lacks ambience of any description but our steaks were fine. Prices were reasonable. Presentation was poor. Service was friendly and prompt. Ate here last year and it was pretty much the same. Nothing special but filled a space. As far as I know there is... More

Service was quick and pleasant and that was the most outstanding aspect of this restaurant. The food - a pizza and a pasta - was nothing special. Because there have been such conflicting views (in my opinion), we were really puzzled. We think we may have solved the dilemma. They have two branches, one in Haarlemmerstraat and the other in...

We popped in for a quick meal after a huge day walking around Amsterdam, were greeted by a very charismatic owner who couldn't have been more welcoming, service was quick and friendly, we both ordered pasta dishes which was very tasty and great value for money by Aussie standards....... A quick note.....we saw several groups of people enter and we're... More

I would rate this as an average Pizza/Italian Restaurant. It was close to our hotel and recommended. We just wanted a nice dinner after a long day of sightseeing, and this place provided that. The pizzas were pretty good, but the crusts were just too overcooked. The pastas were quite good though. Service was a bit slow even though it... More

We popped in here for a quick meal after a day of sightseeing and could not really fault the place so I'm not sure what the negative reviews are based on. We were seated quickly and served with a smile. We only ordered main courses (a steak and a pizza) but both were nicely presented and tasty. Prices were reasonable... More

The pizzas arrive. Uniformly round, and not very hot. You know that way a pizza should arrive - piping hot, all bubbly cheese and fresh aromas? The way fresh baked naan bread or baguettes taste, anything that comes fresh from an oven? All bursting with flavour. Not here. Cut a slice and tasted. I'd say this is either a frozen... More
