I was visiting Amsterdam with friends. Wanting to get away from a tourist trap without being too picky though looking for a light evening meal, a local recommended us to visit Saturnino and must have the 'Gamberoni al Cognac'. And so I did without a regret at all. Simply delicious with fresh roasted vegetables on the side. The staff was... More

A welcoming restaurant, with friedly and kindly staff (expecially Adriano). I've really found the original flavors of italian style of cooking. Follow staff's suggestions and don't miss the "melanzane alla parmigiana" the only flaw are tight spaces (too many tables and people)

We thought the food and restaurant staff were so good that we ate there for all 3 nights that we were in Amsterdam. The food was excellent and was truly Italian. Everything was cooked to perfection. When you see a restaurant that is crowded overnight than should speak volumes.

Wonderful dinner, everything delicious, excellent service (only a short wait between courses), nice atmosphere. It was crowded but I'm sure due to other positive reviews previously written, We had tagliatelle salamone and bruschetta. We asked for bread which is homemade with a flavorful butter. Highly recommended.

Took their most expensive meat dish, "filet mignon", medium rare. The first I got was not medium rare, it was clearly rare. Had to send it out. The second was OK, well the first half of the piece was OK, the second part of the steak was rare, could not eat. Unevenly made, the chef cannot make this type of... More

A perfect place to eat a big meal to help fuel all the walking in Amsterdam. My Spaghetti a la Carbonara was just right, the wait staff was pleasant and attentive, and the location is great for watching all the activity on the bustling street.

What a pleasant surprise to find this family owned Italian restaurant. It was so pleasant to sit outside and people watch. The white house wine was pleasant and the spaghetti pescatore and lasagna bologese were very good. Service was friendly. They had a pretty extensive menu from pizza to all sorts of Italian specialties. I would definitely recommend this place... More

This restaurant is the best Italian food in Amsterdam, the food is so good and served fresh by the Italian chefs and the price is reasonable. My recommendation is start with caprisi salad and carbacio then don't miss the sea food pasta and their crispy pizza. For desert the caramel and jilato is delicious.
