We ate here one evening during our recent trip to Amsterdam. We had one portion of anti-pasti followed by the fish in the main course. The fish tasted excellent. They had a good collection of red wine. Hostess Sara had an excellent attitude and made us feel very comfortable. The restaurant is small but we liked it.

We would recommend : please make a reservation. Small restaurant, Italian menu, everything we had 0 we were 4 - was great. It is also reasonably priced considering other restaurants around. Well located. Keep the address with you as there is no big sign. Lasagna was good, meat was good, pasta too and what about tiramisu and cappuccino. Lovely.

Nice looking little restaurant, very much Italian atmosphere. Small menu, but something for everyone. However a few dissapointments. 1. antipasto was all cramped on one too small plate. The octopus juice side to side with tortilla and cheese, which now tasted like octopus. Not tasty, especialy for the vegetarian on the table. 2. Main was filet which was mediocre. Too... More

We stopped into Caffe 500 for a glass of wine and light snack. This place is for real. Authentic Italian from Umbria. We shared a combo antipasto plate, with salami, salmon, grilled veggies, bruschetta, mozzarella, hams, others wonderful delicacies. Very nice surprise. In a nice museum quarter neighborhood. Sat at the bar so had an opportunity to chat with the... More

Simple but deliciously tasty dishes, the ingredients obviously carefully selected. Limited but quite adequate choices for each of the four courses, antipasti, pasta, main and dolci. We were four, thus enabling us to order and try each of the four choices on offer, (not the pasta...too much). Would recommend mixing and matching in this way, you'll be very pleased that... More

This is a little gem that you will easily walk by if you don't know it's there. Centrally located on the Albert Cuypstraat, this family-run Italian restaurant lures you in with a real Fiat 500 in the window display. Beyond that lies a place where the welcome is warm, and the food authentic, fresh & high-quality. I would recommend taking... More

In the De Pijp area, next to loads of restaurants, burger bars, cocktail bars, cafes and the famous street market and Heineken Brewery, this little Italian gem (with a real Fiat 500 in the window), situated just behind a tram stop on the Albert Cuypstraat, is a real find! Owned by a couple from Umbria / Rome, this is real... More

This restaurant is such a find, I'm reluctant to share! The service & staff are friendly, attentive and the food delicious with the ingredients flown in direct from Italy. The hostess couldn't be more lovely & the restaurant, though small has a wonderful & charming atmosphere. One of my favorite places to eat in Amsterdam.
