Probably the worst experience I ever had in Amsterdam (or in anywhere in the world). The city was great but the this restaurant probably has the worst service I have ever had in my life. I went there with a friend before my train departed. The waitress said the food would be ready in 10 minutes so we ordered spaghetti,... More

The prices are pretty reasonable for the location. I had pasta that was cooked perfectly and my friend had pasta too which they said was great. The drinks are priced okay, but not the cheapest. The service was pretty decent on the day we visited as the place was quite busy.

We ducked into the Pasta Bar to get out of the crowd on a rainy day on Damrak. The service was fine and the food was very good. The servers were attentive and helpful and we lingered a while to let the rain let up. Very cozy and warm.

Agree with another reviewer about the service experience. The pasta was perfectly cooked al dente and the sauce was quite nice, a real rose and not a thick "a la vodka" type some restaurants pass off. The service wasn't rude, just not very friendly or attentive. Good for a quick bite like lunch or a solo dinner like me, just... More

Nice little home-made-pasta-place just around the corner for my hotel. Prices were good and food was good.

Was in the mood for a pizza while my friend was in the mood for pasta, and from the outside it looked both warm and inviting. The place was pretty quite with only four tables occupied so we assumed service would be fast (which was not the case). But while we were waiting for our food to arrive shortly after... More

We met up with my brother in law and his partner plus small dog (Bentley) on a day of pouring rain for lunch. We all enjoyed our food. Two panini which were huge and two of us had pasta carbonara. My brother in law fared better than I - I don't know if it was because he chose spaghetti whilst... More

It's like a Subway for pasta lovers. Portions are generous but there was inconsistency between dishes over the quality of the sauces and toppings. The garlic bread was too thick with barely any garlic to warrant its name. But service was fine and prices were reasonable. Having sat right next to the kitchen, the food did look freshly cooked, but... More
