“Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

The restuarant was recently sold and from what I understand is still Italian. It was so good and the previous owner was terrific. Heard that it is still good.

“Large portions and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We walked past this place by a coincidence and since it was the only restaurant with a crowd inside we chose it. Ordered a assorted antipasto for two which was more than enough. We had to cancel one of our pizzas and ended up sharing the other.

Note that small beers are better value than large.

“Best Pizza in Amsterdam - Service Failed...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

We discovered this lovely Italian restaurant while walking around Amsterdam and decided to return on a Wednesday evening during our city break.
We had booked therefore were expected and we were given a lovely table in the window, the young waiter was friendly, efficient and helpful. We ordered our meal and were served our starters which were excellent, then it all went downhill from a service point of view. Our waiter was sent home, probably end of his shift or because they weren't busy.
Our pizza's were served by the manager/owner? and he didn't seem quite as friendly and when asked for chilli oil he took some time to return with it, although we could see its station from our table.
Whilst this is a 3 star review, I have to say these pizzas were among the best we have ever had - fresh ingredients and authentic italian style - we ate every last piece. During this time we did not see another member of staff, we finished our meal, sat for 10 minutes and still did not see the manager or staff, we both went to the loo hoping to seek them out on our way and still nobody....following 20 minutes of finishing our meal, he returned without an apology for disregarding us completely, did not ask if we would have liked a dessert - which we would have done!...so after another 15 minutes when a member of the staff finally walked by we asked for the bill, paid and showed ourselves out....still confused why we were ignored, unwelcomed and made to feel like we'd put them out!
We were in at 8pm, we left at 9.45pm - surely this isn't closing up time - manager should make his customers feel welcome, the young waiter was fantastic, obviously has great experience in job from a previous place....would return just for the excellent pizzas!

My wife and I came to Saturnino for our last dinner in Amsterdam. It was an excellent choice. Food, ambiance, location, all excellent! Highly recommended!

“Best Pizza in Amsterdam!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

I recently visited Saturino with a 3 of my girlfriends during our trip to the city. We stumbled across this restaurant on our first night and from walking in the door it set the bar high. It was a beautiful decorated restaurant with friendly helpful staff.

The upstairs was small but had a great atmosphere. We all ordered Pizza's and there was not one complaint, they were cooked to perfection! We debated coming back to try some of the other choices on our other evenings. What was being brought out of the kitchen looked sensational. And to top it all off.. The house white wine went down a treat and was relatively cheap!

100% recommend this to other visitors! Even more so after the waitress complimented our group on the amount of accessories we had between us!
