Great experience for our group

I had a reservation on a Monday night for 9. A couple hours prior, two others had joined us so I called and asked them if it was possible they came. They said usually their maximum is 10, but they were able to make an exception for us! With having such a large party, they required us to choose... read more

We landed here by chance and as we were early we could use a table that had a late reservation. We were very pleasantly surprised. The taste was absolutely great, from the home baked bread to the real Italian espresso. our table was directly across the open kitchen, providing a good view. A highlight was looking at how a calf's... More

Husband and I had our best meal in Amsterdam here. We had no reservations so showed up at 6:00, just as the restaurant opened. We were told we could have a table at the back of the restaurant. I thought that was akin to being sent to the corner until I had a seat overlooking the open kitchen. I loved... More

We had such a great night there. It took a bit of time to get our table but we could seat at the bar and enjoy some really good italian red wine. The main dishes were original and tasty, and the restaurant look traditional but still fancy. I really recommend it!

As an Italian who lives in the Netherlands I can say that Toscanini offers a variety of dishes skillfully prepared. All the ingredients are fresh and high quality. Many Italian Restaurants in The Netherlands serve traditional dishes, Toscanini instead surprised me with dishes that combine simplicity with originality. I also found it nice to be able to see the cooks... More

What an unforgettable evening! We were hosted by the owner, Leonardo, with his gregarious nature and broad smile, and he just brought out dish after wonderful Italian food. The atmosphere is festive, the service spot-on and the home-made foods incredible. Toscanini will the celebrating their 30th birthday this year, and you'll understand that they run a full house every night.... More

The food is of high quality: it is what it is but clearly selected with love and care. Same goes for the wines. Simple - and excellent in its simplicity. Start with antipasti, a pasta, then meat to share.. of great quality, which means something from me - living in Argentina! The open kitchen makes it a pleasure to watch... More

It was suggested by a friend who used to live in Amsterdam.. We really enjoyed the food! It was excellent. We were around 8 persons, we all got different dishes and we all loved them. The sweets were excelent too and the local italian wine amazing! And not that expensive also..

In two earlier occasions trying to reserve a table 2 weeks upfront did not work - the place is famous for a reason! (I'm happy they did not add more tables as it is a already bit noisy now.) Food is very good and fresh, wines (and sommelier advice) excellent. Staff is well informed and positively enthusiastic about the ingredients... More
