We are serious travelers who have been to Amsterdam many times. It is our favorite Europeen city.We made a reservation at Toscanini because of the extraordinary reviews on trip advisor. The concierge at my five star hotel had never heard of it and looked tame funny when I told him we have a booking.we had a six o'clock reservation and... More

It was a must to reserve a table at Toscanini; my husband thought, "Ok great it must be a great italian place". So, he reserved a table online for the only time available which was 6:00PM. Online they posted a notice that you can only dine until 8:00PM; you must be finished by 8PM. We should have known from that... More

Was nervous about going here our first night in Europe, jet lagged to boot. It was just perfect. Though it's busy, it's not too loud and the atmosphere is warm and has a nice ambience. Our server was attentive and prompt. Of course there's a wait between the first and second courses, perhaps 15 minutes, but it was well worth... More

This was our first time in Amsterdam and exploring this village - like and charming international city is well worth traveling here. After strolling for about 30 minutes we decided to dine at this upscale place. Subdued lighting, white tablecloths, rustic walls with exposed brick, attentive waiters who spoke English and didn't mind that I didn't speak Dutch, and an... More

Italian cafe prepares excellent Italian cuisine. The pizza was one of the best we had ever had. The place is small and simple and the service is very pleasant . Highly recommended!

This restaurant serves Italian food, but don't think pizza or pasta as other Italians serve. It's all very authentic, honest food. Freshly prepared in the open kitchen for all to see. There is lots of choice on the menu, but also on the board. This changes every day. The decor is not highly stylish, but suits the atmosphere. Service is... More

For a restaurant where you need reservations days in advance and Trip Advisor reviews were pretty good, I expected more. Maybe it's because I have so many outstanding Italian restaurants in Chicago, Toscanini was just average. The menu was limited. Pasta selections were few. I chose a pasta dish with salad. My husband had a chicken dish with salad. Nothing... More

We had a stunning meal here - I know every restaurant has good and bad days but we felt that the service was great and the food was delicious. We had chicken and quail, then pannacotta, which were all to die for. It's not going to be 10 out of 10 every time but we just loved it.

We were excited to get a table. The bar staff were very nice. The building a bit shabby. We were seated on time. We ordered and then waited. And waited. And waited. Susan came to the table and explained the wait. She was very nice. After one hour ( May have been a bit longer), the blonde lady that started... More

We ate here twice during our one week visit to Amsterdam and obviously loved it the first time or we wouldn't have returned: Food was excellent, good service and we loved the atmosphere. However the second time was not as good. We made a reservation 4 days in advance and could only get a table at 21:30. Our waiter was... More
