“Close to hotel and transport.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Came here because the Indonesian restaurant across the road was packed out! We ordered S, Bolognese and Lasagne. The Lasagne was flavourful, the S Bolognese forgettable. The S Bolognese is such a simple dish to make and it can be a real treat. Unfortunately this dish missed out!
The staff are friendly and attentive and there is a comprehensive menu.

“Good Pizza, Poor Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The pizza is fairly good, but a bit overpriced. The staff is indifferent at best and rudely inconsiderate of patrons' time more often than not. Our waiter was sullen and treated us like dirt. The menu lists soft drinks at 2.50 eur and we ordered two, but were unpleasantly surprised when they charged us for "medium" drinks at 4.00 eur for .3 L glasses of 7Up. I agree with an earlier reviewer who called this place a 'tourist trap'. It is. Avoid.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Friendly waiters won't let you waiting: you will get your table as soon you come in.
I ate there twice, and I ordered twi meals at teh same tima (was starving).
Penne with 4 kinds of cheese was good, as well pizza.
The Argentinian part of the order consisted of a steak with fries and salad.
The second day, the steak was a little bit tough - i had to leave a few bites...

Red wine was ok, coffee was good too,

20 eur per person (with wine and coffee) is not too much. Ideal for business lunch or tired tourist couples.

“We ate here twice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

The Canaletto offers both an Italian and an Argentinian menu. The atmosphere was pleasant even though from the outside it looked unimpressive. The Argentinian goulash soup as excellent and in general the Argentinian food was better than the Italian offerings. Price was reasonable, location was convenient especially if you are visiting one or more of the museums in this area.

“Nice local Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We ate here the day we were leaving Amsterdam. It doesn't look much from the outside, but the food was really great. Choice of pizza, pasta, but also grilled meats and fish. Staff were very friendly and the service was prompt, which was good as we were on our way to the airport
