“Best Italian in Amsterdam! Visited twice in 3 days.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

My boyfriend and I stumbled across this Italian on day two of our three day Amsterdam trip. I had a spicy pizza and my boyfriend had the carbonara. Both were delicious and the service was great. We even came back the next night and it was equally delicious and the house wine was great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant! The value for money was also excellent.

“Delicious Italian food ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

We were here for dinner last night and we're very impressed with the food, ambiance and the service. Everything was perfect. We had the Arabiata and the melanzane pizza and then creme caramel for dessert. The service was very good and the food was very delicious. A must try when in Amsterdam!

“Best dinner we had while in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

We happened across this restaurant by accident and it was really busy while restaurant across the street was really quite so we decided to try it. We had to wait for table but was worth it. There was a great atmosphere and food and wine was lovely and not over priced. We got placed at table at end of the restaurant so when about to pay got a free drink of our choice on the house. I thought this was a lovely touch. Staff friendly and good.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

This is the second time we visited this restaurant. We stopped in over the summer and it was so good that when we returned in Feb on a layover we sought this place out to eat. Both times the food was excellent and the service warm and inviting.

Don't imagine that you'll get McDonald's speed for delivery of your food. While they never forgot about us, there was definitely a lazy afternoon sort of feel to it. Our food arrived hot and very delicious. Go for fast food if you want to get in and out. If you want to sit and enjoy your meal and have a drink or two, pull up a chair. I think you'll not be disappointed.

I speculated in August that there are three generations working there in addition to the rest of the staff, but I could be mistaken. There is a kindly grandfather figure that my daughter loves (he gives out lollies but says she has to eat all her food first).

We have so far tried the lasagna, pizzas, and pasta alfredo. We have no complaints minus the fact that the restaurant is in Amsterdam and not our city! We'll be back when we visit again.
