“Worth every euro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

I was looking for a nice Italian restaurant for our last night in Amsterdam and noticed this one on Trip Advisor. From start to finish the service was excellent with the guy having a serious side making excellent recommendations for both food and drinks. The food that we ordered was truly excellent and I really can't find any fault. It was also very pleasant to find that the bill was quite fair as well.
All in all, an excellent experience and highly recommended.

“Real Italian Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

This place is more like a delicatessen than a restaurant, but Giancarlo has a few tables and makes a lovely dinner arrangement. There are many choices of cold foods in the large counter and you choose either cold dishes or hot dishes (that are warmed up while you wait, if you eat there). If you want to eat in there you should make reservations; we watched them apologize to several people for lack of space during our meal.
Giancarlo says the food is largely from Italy, including the tomotoes, eggplant and buffula mozzerella. All of our dishes were very good, and many were outstanding. Giancarlo will discuss the food with you and is flexible on how you can order. The prices were very reasonable. We also bought some prosecco, tomato juice and chips that were imported from Italy.

“very well!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Unfortunately the restaurant was closed, I could only taste the food to take away. Well, I must say it was great, the food would receive a good judgment even if I had taken in Italy,in the Netherlands become ecellent! The price was unfortunately expensive, but as expensive as the whole city is. Ultimately recommend it dispassionately, it is the only place that serves Italian cuisine that it really is.

“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.
