Good Italian restaurant

It is hard to find good Italian restaurant outside of Italy. Exception is Tokyo, Japan (Privately I rated Italian in USA 0 to 40%). You can expect 80% grade of Italian cuisine in this restaurant. As the restaurant based on south of Napoli, you can enjoy southern Italian cuisine. It is better to... read more

Incanto, an Italian restaurant in a four story walk up across the canal from the Hotel De L'Europe. The gnocchi was the best I've ever had and so was the veal tartare. Service was excellent and the value was certainly there!

Went here on Thursday and had a great meal, enen though it was a bit pricey. Went again today (Friday) hoping for the same experience, but nor a chance. Poor service, poor quality of food. The steak was half fat and oily. Wouldn't chance it again. They saw we didn't eat anything but I guess why ask when you know.... More

very tasteful Italian style dishes with beautiful creative compositions... a little costly for an Italian restaurant, but it's worth it..... an excellent winelist, beautiful decorated with lots of different materials and furniture.... the location itself is also reason to visit. At the second floor with many windows overlooking the Muntplein in the busy center of Amsterdam. Never thought a good... More

Food in general is not Amsterdam's strength, but this is one very good restaurant. Everyone we asked recommended it as the best Italian restaurant in town and we thought that they were probably right.

This is a great classical Italian restaurant, but you wont find pizza here. This staff and food definitively places this restaurant on the top Italian restaurants in Amsterdam, this is also reflected on the bill.My girlfriend and I visited the restaurant rather late on a Friday evening, we shared a started and the risotto of the day, both very tasty,...

My husband and I had the opportunity to try this wonderful little restaurant during our recent stay. It has wonderful views down the canals. The menu is not your typical "Italian". If you are looking for heavy red sauce and pasta, this is not the restaurant for you. It is more a northern Italian menu with lots of interesting seafood... More

We had a large group so we booked the third floor (at no extra charge) last minute and the view was incredible. Its a beautiful space, but the food was less than great. The menu is somewhat limited and it is certainly not the kind of quality you would find in Italy. However, I found that most restaurants in Amsterdam... More

Charming Italian restaurant very close to our hotel that we would not have otherwise have found if not for the recommendation of the concierge at the Hotel De L'Europe. Food was good and price reasonable.
