Visited Toscana with a friend on my first evening in Amsterdam. Service was friendly and we were shown to a table by the front door. My friend and I shared bruschetta for starters and I had spaghetti carbonara for main, the portions were very big so unfortunately I couldn't finish it all. The restaurant was busy inside so there was... More

We waited half a hour to have our drinks and food order taken, if we hadn't been so tired we would have given up waiting. I would have given a lesser rating but when the food arrived it was all freshly made, we all had something different and really enjoyed it....shame about the slow service

After wondering around an incredibly wet and cold Amsterdam realising most restaurants local to our hotel were closed (it was a Sunday at around 8:00) we stumbled across this place. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We ordered a carbonara each which was ready very quickly and it was amazing. You could clearly see the kitchen was clean. We... More

They have remodeled. The restaurant has lost all of its character. White empty walls? My favorite pizza is no longer offered. New menu is kinda expensive. BTW - The pin machine did not work. They could have let us know when we entered. I miss the old place and old staff.

Can't speak for the pizza, but other Italian dishes were pretty good. Tired and hungry, we stopped here our first night in Amsterdam and had a good experience. As previous reviewer wrote, the service was quick and pleasant.

I agonised about the score for this one. Not worth four but better than three. Lacks ambience of any description but our steaks were fine. Prices were reasonable. Presentation was poor. Service was friendly and prompt. Ate here last year and it was pretty much the same. Nothing special but filled a space. As far as I know there is... More

See there are a few negative comments about the pizza, we only had the pasta so I can tell you that was very nice - happy to eat it all and pay the reasonable price. Good solid food, not fancy but tasty and filling. Service was friend and efficient so we were in and out in no time.

Service was quick and pleasant and that was the most outstanding aspect of this restaurant. The food - a pizza and a pasta - was nothing special. Because there have been such conflicting views (in my opinion), we were really puzzled. We think we may have solved the dilemma. They have two branches, one in Haarlemmerstraat and the other in...

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
