Nice atmosphere

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... read 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

I ate there with two of my grownup children and found it a great experience. And that is exactly what this is about, a great experience! Small be very lively restaurant in a real Italian style as demonstrated by the Fiat 500 in de window! Staff with lovely strong Italian accents adding to the atmosphere. Good but not top level...

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.

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
