Food was great. Service was appalling. I say food was great, that is until the dessert came. We had to wait an eternity for the waiter to take our order for desserts, he was more interested in serving the other half of the restaurant, he was the only person serving the whole of the restaurant. I ordered a Vanilla ice... More

Let me start by saying that the service was really great here. The staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly from the moment we arrived. They were also very attentive. In addition, after walking all over Amsterdam, it was nice to have a place so centrally located where we could rest our feet, get some food and escape the rain. The... More

Had a great dinner at Bella Regina. Wanted a good meal and did not want anything fancy - this met our needs well. The food was tasty and adequate, the salad was very well done.

Unpretentious looking, small Italian restaurant had excellent food at very reasonable prices. Service was friendly and efficient. We enjoyed grilled salmon with fries and canniloni with ricotta and spinach. Along with our entrees we had delicious garlic cheese bread. Desserts looked interesting but we were comfortably full.

excellent food and very warm and friendly service. I visit Amsterdam a lot and have dinner here 8-10 times and never a regret. It seems family owned. I highly recommend.

We visited the restaurant, the service was rude, the sparkling wine served was both off and flat. The owner was more interested in issuing the bill than looking at the appalling service and bad food. Do yourself a favour and go somewhere else. Eli

Although the staff was helpful, the food was bad. I have been there with three of my family members. We ordered two pasta dishes and two lasagnes. None of them was good at all. They were even worse than the ones you can get from the supermarket's ready made food section. Well, they were edible, but if you see eating... More

Our server Emil was the real star of this restaurant as he graciously and energetically recommended and served us a delicious meal of some Italian staples that we were in dire need of after 10 days of travel to Africa. We enjoyed a wonderful pizza and spaghetti bolognese which was very tasty and was just the right type of comfort... More
