Cosy Italian

Great pizza and steak and pasta everything you think an Italian restaurant should be. House wine ok. Hardly any tourists this is a haunt of the Dutch. Very helpful staff

Local Italian restaurant with a neighborhood feel. Great pizza and the pecorino cheese with truffle and honey oil may be the best thing I have ever eaten.Seriously delicious. Service is friendly but disorganized. Worth booking.

Our server here was such a friendly, helpful, enthusiastic person that it really made the meal. The food was freshly prepared and lots of creative options. Pizzas and pastas were both good and the local charm was wonderful. Make a reservation as it gets crowded. We really enjoyed this off the beaten path gem.

Arrived on a rainy Sunday night to a packed house and warm welcome. Short, realistic wine list, all pleasingly available by glass, 500ml carafe or bottle. Interesting specials, we ate octopus/scallops in a tarragon cream sauce (delicious), sliced steak(average) plus antipasta platter to start. Pizzas looked good with a wide choice. Excellent service too, often in short supply in Amsterdam!

the restaurant was very busy so we were asked by the owner to have a beer in the restaurant opposite, owned also by him. The beer my partner had was one of the best he ever had, Texel I think. We were then invited across, still very busy but we got a nice table and were treated as one of... More

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel we were staying at which was a short stroll away. So glad we went! On our first visit it was full. First impressions were "How lovely warm & welcoming". The owner welcomed us in, explained they were full but directed us over the road to his other restaurant where we... More

We visited De Italiaan finally as during our 4 last attempts they where full every time. So our expectations were high. Unfortunately they were not met. Although the staff was very friendly they made 2 mistakes on our order so we got something different as ordered. The food was ok but rather overpriced and not very original. Will not go... More

Maybe we were there on an 'off' night. Pizza selections though were very good and rival the Pizzerias of New Haven and Boston. If you suffer from vertigo stay at ground level . Hard to find place .Wait staff were excellent .
