Arguably the best Italian restaurant in Amsterdam

Very good, authentic Italian food in an informal (bright and light) setting in the picturesque Jordaan. Toscanini is an Amsterdam institution and you don't last 30 years if you're no good. You do need to reserve (often quite a long time) in advance.

For an Italian outside of italy - this was one of the best I have been to, in long time. Spoilt as I am in London with some excellent restaurants, Toscanini was our first dinner and what a treat this was. Walking distance from our hotel, we were ushered to the chefs table without being aware there was one! A... More

Too authentic Italian. Unusual food and just "okay" after being recommended. I would not recommend unless you like very different food-frankly disappointed.

probably the only italian restaurant where you really feel to be in italy because of the taste of the food.offcourse you need to book at least 10 before to have a table,that is the only disadvantage..

Went to Toscanini with a group of 6 people, we all had the 6 course menu which was a lot of food but very high quality and wonderful produce. The white Malvesa wine was one of the best I have ever tasted! Very informal atmosphere but good attentive service and excellent food. The price was good for Amsterdam and I... More

We were looking forward to coming here but the service was so awful we had to walk out. We had a reservation and were told to wait by the bar. Not one person in 20 minutes asked us if we wanted a drink, the hostess did not not talk to us to tell us that they were running late with... More

We've just returned from a 5 day visit to Amsterdam, a celebration of my "Better Half's" Birthday. Most of what we experienced was great, (especially our stay at the excellent "Canal House"), and we enjoyed the hospitality of several restaurants. "Toscanini" was a sad, painful exception! We knew that this city attracts lots of Tourists (like us), so we planned... More

This was our night out to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed. And... it was a short walk from our house boat on the Prinsengracht. We had reservations (and they are a must)... and were seated promptly. And then we settled in for a relaxing evening. It sounds deafening when you walk in towards your seats, but... More

wonderful atmosphere coupled with delicious food. the staff were so accommodating and wine list and recommendation was perfect. Was totally full & i booked before I left UK as I had been told to visit. The waiter said busy for 6 weeks in advance and so worth it. Perhaps not great for young children, I dined with teenagers & was... More
