“So good, went twice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Wonderfully authentic Italian food served beautifully. The center window seat with the pillows is very romantic with a gorgeous view of the canal. Wild boar ragu and the fish, all excellent.

“Great Italian food in a great ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Went here with 8 colleagues for dinner.

The restaurant is based in an old and small building and as a result of this the restaurant is spread out over multiple layers leading to some logistic challenges for the owners. They have however solved this in such a way that it 'adds' to the ambiance instead of becoming annoying. It is however all a little small so you have to like that.

The location of the restaurant is very good at the corner of very popular point in Amsterdam. Some of the seats have great views on the street.

The quality of the food was excellent making this one of Amsterdam's best Italian restaurants. Pricing is also a little high but not unreasonable for the quality delivered. Well recommended.

“Watch the charges on your bill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We were recommended this Italian after asking our concierge who booked it for us. When we arrived we seriously thought of walking out it was like a train station and romantic only if you wished to hear everyone else around you. You are seated all In a row with approximately 250mm gap between each table. The food was good quality but not for a charge of 177 euros for two and we were double charged on our bill for wine which we could not read till we got out. Staff treated locals different to tourist little things but different. Please read you bill and check and ask prices water is very expensive.

“Probably the best Italian restaurant in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Finding a genuine Italian restaurant in Amsterdam is actually very difficult. There are a lot that would like to claim that they are but in truth Incanto has been the best that I have found so far. When all of waiters and the kitchen staff are all Italian, it is a good start.

I have eaten here 3 times now and the food is excellent. Service has always been attentive but not intrusive or overbearing. Wine choice is also very, very good as there are good quality wines at a reasonable price along with some very high quality/priced wines.

Is it the cheapest meal that you will have? - No, but you will have a very good Italian meal which you will enjoy.
