“The Magnificent Jan Carlo & Ruby”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

i was with a friend who requested a good healthy meal, not too much meats but fresh and light. We stopped off at an elegant small little place with a warm looking fella wearing shorts and glasses, They were closed but with the door open. Mr Shorts (who is the delightful Jan Carlo) welcomed us in, described in great detail what they had and where it came from (Azzuzo Italy) then promptly served up a tasty light spot hitting meal. I do not have enough space to write what we ate but can honestly say, it was truly pleasurable experience dining in this wonderful little establishment yet alone the tastes we sampled all washed down by there very own white wine. A real secret on the busy Haarlemmerdijk Best service, best food hence Best feeling. Thanks guys.. Hence returning home with a must to writing a review and sharing this wonderful experience. Please try for yourselves.

“AMAZING, one of the best ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Ok. So, we all know the Dutch are not known for their food, or their service, serving the average food.
Hence, even in Amsterdam, we tend to go Italian.
And boy, do we LOVE it.
It's kinda more like a delie, a take away, but it also has a few small tables for lunch and early dinner / aperitivo.
That, and! Giancarlo does amazing cooking classes. That make you feel more like you're in a true Cuccina Italiano, hanging around the kitchen, where the host cooks, than anything else.
And you observe with a glass of wine. But, you can also help, cook, make, cut, chop, taste, as you prefer.

The food is truly to die for, the atmosphere too, and it's a great experience all round.

MOLTO BENE!

Ps. ALL the Amsterdam Italians go here and find it up to their high standard par.

Every time I went to mondo Mediterraneo, I have been impressed by the amazing food and the great atmosphere Giancarlo and his team brought to us. It is such a great experience of the true taste of Italy in the heart of Amsterdam!
I definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Europe and especially Amsterdam

“LOVE IT!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

You do not have to travel to Italy in order to experience the Italian hospitality and good life. Mondo is a great little place, where they serve a nice variety of honest Italian food and wine. I am always curious for their desserts, most of the time overindulge myself on their dolce. When it's nice weather it lovely to sit and enjoy your lunch/dinner in their little back garden. If you do not have the time to sit down, but on the go, then you can just pick up the food 'to go'! Love this place, do not miss out on it!!!
