I discovered this place in Social Deals Amsterdam, and I am extremely happy with the place. The food was excellent, everything homemade and with good quality products (good olive oil, fresh fish, etc). We had a 4 dishes menu, which it was too much food, but since everything was super delicious, we manage to eat it all. Not only the... More

I'm Italian and I can tell you that you rarely find so authentic places outside of Italy. Their passion for slow food and high quality products is clear and the staff is friendly and hilarious. If you know what real Italian food tastes like you can't possibly be disappointed.

This is a nice cozy restaurant on a busy street. The staff was very professional. The house red wine was excellent. I ordered pasta with prawns and asparagus. Although it was on the menu, the waiter had to check if they had any asparagus. They did and my dish was satisfactory, although could have had more flavor. My wife ordered... More

Hidden little gem in an ugly street. Go for lunch. The food is great, so is the service and the price.

Hi, we've been living in Amsterdam since 1998, the best food/wine experience I've had ever is with http://www.albacaro.nl/menu.html Web site is in Dutch/Italian, your webbrowser can translate.

The service was top, Chef and all the staff very professional and friendly, wine was great...but food was very disappointing. Everything tasted the same, in every meal there were spices missing, rice was overcooked, warm starters was served cold and with no taste at all... Can't recommend.

The food was very bland indeed and there wasn't much of it. Antipasti very poor indeed and extremely expensive for what it was. My raviolini was tasteless, my wife's pasta with an asparagus sauce was also tasteless. My brother was not so disappointed with his risotto. The bottle of house red was good! The owner and his partner talked a... More
