Fabulous Italian Food in Amsterdam

A small restaurant with great heart and great food. Enjoy the appetizers by sharing with a friend. Then select a main dish and/or pasta. You can not go wrong. Wine pairings are also excellent, and not too pricey. Share desserts as well. Each time we ate here, we were thrilled The head waitress... read more

This lovely Italian place with its Napolitan chef serves great food. Antipasti are very good and not too meaty. Main dishes are very worthwhile. Friendly, genuinly Italian staff. Would definitely recommend going there.

Unique decor with a real car at the entrance .Great service despite the full house. I loved the food , tasty . Not to be missed. Maybe reservation is needed. We were lucky. We arrived early and they... More

We heard great reviews on this restaurant and chose it over a few others travelling that little bit further... It has a modern decor which I think spoils an Italian and it is small & a bit cramped... The food is nice but I wouldn't say it was amazing what makes the restaurant work is the staff polite friendly &... More

Been here a couple of times and every time the food is superb. Ingredients are fresh and a lot freshly imported from Italy. Buffola mozzarella as it should be. Fresh and soft, tasting like spring / refreshing. I always go for the pasta dishes. Cooked to perfection al-dente. Menu varies quite often so come back often and be surprised. You... More

This place was recommended by two of my Italian friends that like me have lived in this city for 7 years. We have all eaten in many different Italian restaurants, and this is by far the best we have tasted. We will definitely go back here!

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.

Staying in De Pijp

Neighborhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
