Menu consists of a strange mix of Tapas and Pasta, we opted for the tapas, largely recommended by the waitress, all excellent. Arrive early, we had to wait 40 mins for a table, but we squeezed into the bar. Great atmosphere, cosy and all the plates of food coming out of the kitchen looked good. Yes, there was a cat... More

A few hours following dinner here my daughter developed indigestion that lasted into the following morning. The discomfort kept her up most of the night. Servers were curt, and unlike other restaurants at which we dined did not want to help us choose options consistent with our dietary restrictions. As noted before, there was a cat that wanders around the... More

Stopped here few times while in Amsterdam as it was on the walk home from central to our hotel. Only ate here the once and had a lovely sandwich. Nice to sit outside and have a drink and people watch. Always seemed to be busy, always a good sign :)

Came for the 2nd time, close to the hotel and the ambience is very nice. 1st time experience was good, a reason to come back. Only this time, things were different. We could choose a table upstairs, which we did. After us came in another family, and they chose the table behind us. The caucasian waitress came and handed over... More

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at our hotel and was very close by. When we went in, we were told that it would be a one hour wait, but it wasn't close to that. The tapas were really good - ( I think we had about 5 different dishes). We had a great conversation with a boisterous family... More

Doesn't look much from the outside but the food and service were excellent, also great value.Ordered 3 tapas (jumbo mussels from the specials board, squid and giant prawns plus a fish soup which was amazing. Friendly staff, excellent service never kept waiting even though the restaurant was packed, wished I could eat there every day.

Nothing out of the ordinary, just nice food served in decent surroundings by smiley people. We went twice during a 4 night stay in Amsterdam as it was close to our hotel and we enjoyed the pasta and the atmosphere. The gnocchi bolognese was good and hearty.

Nothing special. Standard stereotypical Italian cuisine. I tried a risotto with mushrooms and it wasn't that great. It was OK, but nothing special.
