“Simply wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

A secret delight, Great fresh food and special service. A great find in a confusingly difficult city for real food.

“Great Italian Food in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

In Amsterdam for the day and found this restaurant when walking back to the car. Walked in and had a table straight away. The bite size bruschetta was delicious and the bread with olive paste very appetising. Both starter and main dish portions were good and extremely tasty. Tiramisu was creamy and worth the calories. Would certainly go back and recommend.

“Cute!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Very nice and cute restaurant just on the street in really peaceful area.
it was nice to seat outside... we ordered only one dish, rissotto and raviolli and it was perfect!
we had only 2 glasses of house wine which was also very very nice.
Atmosphere is nice and relaxing, so this is really nice restaurant to visit and experience!

“Great find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We discovered this place while trying to find somewhere else but it was a lucky find. We had pasta and risotto dishes that were both excellent. Parmesan to top these is scraped out of an enormous cheese then spooned onto your plate. A couple on the next table had tagliatelle with mushroom and parmesan sauce. The mushrooms were dumped flaming into the big cheese in order to melt it, the pasta added, then plated up. Quite spectacular, wish I'd ordered it!
Deserts were rather disappointing, my limoncello tart was creamy, slightly sickly, and certainly lacked any limoncello kick.
Nice Italian waiter.

“Fresh Italian food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This restaurant obviously prides itself on fresh well presented food. We chose main meals of risotto and ravioli. The food was lovely but the portion size for the ravioli was disappointing. We were glad to have bread supplementing the meal.
For dessert we chose ice-cream and again the portions were small. The waiter was charming and friendly but we felt that compared to some other restaurants, providing equally tasty food, this was not good value.
