A part of Italy in Amsterdam

Very, very good Italian food. We were with an Italian colleague who said it was rare to have such a food so for from Italy. Thanks for the pastas, the veal and the seafood. We had a very good moment in your restaurant.

I don't even know where to start. This place came recommended so perhaps I went with expectations that were too high, but seriously this is the worst dining experience I have ever had. Even McDonalds beats this restaurant for quality! We started out ok, ordering two large glasses of wine, which, in fairness, were good quality. So far so good... More

The service was horrible. The food was overpriced. The ambience okay. Somehow we put off the chef with a dietary request and then we were ignored by both servers and manager. I wouldn't waste my money in dining at this place.

Been here twice now, once with family and once with friends. Very good Italian food prepared by jovial and service-oriented Italian staff. Portions, service, food, ambiance all good. Can't really fault it, minor detail is the fairly hefty price of some of the wines on the wine list. Would (and have) definitely recommend(ed); of all the Italian restaurants I've tried... More

We saw this restaurant near the apartment we were renting and two men outside toldd us it was the best italian food in Amsterdam. We went the next night. We didn't make a reservation but were given a table. The service was so friendly and helpful. Other customers were raving about their food. When ours came it was just so,... More

Incase you would like to go to a real Italian ambiance and have a food orgasm. Very friendly staff (real Italians) and good wines. Try to make a reservation in advance, the restaurant is often fully booked and populair at the locals. Enjoy!

We turned up without a reservation and received a warm welcome and the last available table for two. Although we were seated at the back of the restaurant we never felt overlooked as the waitress regularly came to our table and checked everything was ok. The Antipasti starter for two was incredible. Our mains of the Fillet of beef wrapped... More

We will definitely be back because of the mix of: good ambiance, friendly staff, professional timing and correct value for money. Just how it should be!

The general feeling was that we were an inconvenience. We couldn't tell whether our waiter was deliberately condescending or just having a bad night. We waited for so long for our order to be taken that we decided to skip starters and go straight for the main course. I had rib-eye steak and my wife had lobster linguine. The lobster... More
