“Perfection on a plate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2015

Fourth visit over five years and still the best Italian food in Amsterdam. Frighteningly expensive, but worth it.

“A delightful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015

This almost hidden small restaurant offers a warm and charming welcome, refined Italian dishes. The ideal place to have dinner with friends.

“Passion for food, lovely Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2015

The one thing you will remember after your meal here is the owner and his pure passion for food. An ex-chef he decided to start his own restaurant that show cases good Italian food, from the region he grew up. The food is very good, many dishes are home style with a slight modern twist. Hand picked wines from Italy that go with the food and good value for money. Its a small menu but well devised with good ingredients and to give you enough variety to experience the cuisine. The place is really small and cozy. The owner makes up for any short comings in terms of the place with his extreme attentiveness and warmth. Definitely worth a visit if you like to taste outside of the usual Italian!

“One of the best Italian restaurants we visited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2015

We booked on a cold winter evening and came out 3 hours later with a big smile on our faces.
This was absolutely one of the best and authentic Italian restaurants we ever visited.

We didn't order the menu and we must say: menu courses we saw didn't seem so attractive as the courses we ordered.

We both had a mushroom soup, followed by a great pasta and a vegetarian plate for me. Tastes we're truly amazing. Excellent dessert just finished it.

We were not very astonished by the red wine, but that's maybe because we chose one of the more budget wines.

And oh: what a great interior.

We happily paid the bill, even though it was quite high.

“Owner was our waiter...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2014

...and his passion for his craft showed in the way he described the food, the presentation and the service that was provided by him and his staff. Dinner was a combination of traditional italian fare and innovative cuisine -- each course was described in quick, but elegant way. My fish was exceptional and a specialty rice dish was also delicious. Dessert was appropriate sized and tasty chocolate treat. I would recommend highly to business folks, traveling romantic couples and food lover.
