Gourmet Italian Food

First class waitstaff, excellent second floor views of canal- you must be able to walk about 20 steps- and of course wonderful original food with beautiful presentations. We received an additional appetizer and small complimentary dessert with our dinner.

I thought this food was quite good though for the prices it was a bit on the small side. Our appetizer of squid and scallops was tasty but €18 for very little food. The artichoke and mushroom dish was surprisingly addicting though it gave me stomach pains which never happens to me. Glasses of wine were a bargain at €5... More

This restaurant is called Incanto, NOT L'Incanto. We were recommended to go by the concierge at Hotel De L'Europe where we were in residence. We left wine order to the owner, a Venetian Italian guy who clearly has passion called Simone who asked us to trust him after I explained our preferences. He brought us a Furore Marisa Cuomo which...

Did not expect to a restaurant where one can relax and watch busy Amsterdam go by. Good selection of wines, good explanation of the delicious food. We managed to share as it looked and tasted so good. I felt it was a little pricey for the restaurant but perhaps you have a different opinion.

Highly recommended by a local who chooses this as the best Itlaian restaurant in Amsterdam. She was right! Had a very good meal in a very attractive space. Very authentic REAL Italian food. As good as the best in NYC or LA. Americans who have not been to Italy may not enjoys this. The wine list is all Italian and... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant. We got there quite early, so we were the only ones in the restaurant. It's classy and over looks the center of Amsterdam. I would definitely go back.

We visited Incanto on the recommendation of the concierge at the Grand and so expected something special as he said it was one of his personal favourites. The only two times we were served with any degree of attentiveness was (1) when we were asked immediately on arrival if we would like 'un aperitivo', and (2) the delivery of the... More

Sitting at one of the tables along the windows, you get a nice view of the action of the city; its architecture, trams, traffic, bicycles, and activity on the canal. And oh yes, the tortelloni tartufo, pesce del giorno(don't remember what it was but it was good), and the gnocchi all'astice were first rate. We also enjoyed the service which... More
