Best Italian food in authentic Dutch atmosphere

Another of the restaurants I wanted to revisit after too long a break away from Amsterdam. I had the most memorable risotto ever in this restaurant years ago - cooked only in champagne. No longer on the menu but no worries - the new chef is really talented and every dish we had was superb. Very... read more

Lovely restaurant with good atmosphere and superb food. We had a fabulous meal here yesterday. 1/2 Lobster and seafood linguine with a lovely bottle of wine and delicious ice cream chocolate dessert. Would thoroughly recommend eating here.

This is a must when in Amsterdam. Delicious food and wine accompanied with great service. The portions are large and you will eat every bite of the house made pasta.

We have passed this restaurant several times while living in Amsterdam, as it is right in the city center, and finally tried it. Surprisingly glad that we did. Started with the mixed vegetables, followed with the pasta and steak. Service was great and atmosphere was pleasant, serving traditional Italian dishes. A highlight was the table wine, a valpolicella which was... More

Located few steps away from the main shopping street of Amsterdam. Authentic Italian place with Italian chefs and staff. My favourite is the mixed starter for 2 persons which has grilled veggies, different cold cuts, vitello tonato, carpaccio, small pieces of lasagna. Although after that starter there is not much space left for the main :)), which is also very... More

I've dined at Vasso maybe 50 times over the past 6 years. This place offers honest, well prepared, albeit ultra-classic italian fare in a nice, warm setting. The quality of the food definitely cannot be faulted. On my recent visit after a long break, I was happy to see that nothing had changed. The vitello tonnato, the fresh tuna carpaccio,... More

I've been to Vasso on a business trip with a couple friends, during the ADE week. During this week Vasso becomes a meeting point for many first-class DJs, so you can meet some real rockstars. Anyway, Vasso is a true Italian restaurant, with Italian waiters and chefs. I enjoyed some amazing pasta and awesome-tasting red wine. Definitely I suggest you... More

Yummy authentic Italian food, great wine list & location. Rustic service a little dour but still nice place to eat.

Real Italian food but with something more exciting than just pizza and pasta. I had the orata in crosta which was lovely, nicely cooked. My partner had some pasta with fungi - pasta was fresh, cooked aldente and lovingly made. A great stop. Recommended!
