I was in Amsterdam with my wife recently and came across this restaurant on a stroll through town. It was very busy, though we were seated quickly. A reservation is probably a good idea on a Saturday night I would think. We had some bruschetta to start, which was very tasty, especially the goat's cheese. For mains we had some... More

The antipasto was fabulous, and the fish was delicious. The kids just had some simple pasta and really enjoyed it.

Was hoping for better from this place. It's a cure little pla.ce, but the service was slow as we waited a very long time for our entrees as a large table was next to us. They were out of sardines, which was what we came in for. Wines were pretty bad. Just an ordinary meal. Could have been much better.

We happened upon this restaurant while walking in the city. We were able to get a table ( though reservations are requested), in a window overlooking the street. The food was wonderful!! Pasta is made on site and the sauces are fantastic. Great place for people watching too! The waiter tells me they are famous for their food and service... More

Great food, slow service, lovely staff and atmosphere. Can't add much really. I had a lovely cod and lentil dish that was catch of the day, my wife had a great vegetarian risotto.

Can't fault either the food or service here, as were well looked after and the food was of a good quality. The restaurant has got a lovely buzz in it and we were given plenty of time in between courses Would happily recommend

I work in the tourism sector and I like to visit restaurants in my city to be able to recommend good places to eat to my costumers. Food was great but the service was terrible. Very impolite Italian waiters, I think that they were annoyed because we ordered only one dish of the menu (per person) ,even though the place... More

Quite busy again but never the less never fails to deliver on food and service yet again. Great choice of main and deserts not overly priced but large portions so be warned. House wine red always a great choice and ask for the bread yum yum

This accessible Italian restaurant in Amsterdam serves antipasti, authentic pastas and scrumptious secondi piatti prepared with fresh ingredients for lunch and dinner. All the meat is organic, the mozzarella is from the buffalo and the espresso ranks among the best in Amsterdam. Genuine smiles, enjoyable music, home made ice creams & cakes and history on the wall, make Trattoria Caprese an original Italian oasis in Amsterdam. The kitchen is open from 12 a.m. till 23 p.m. but from 10 a.m. you're welcome to enjoy an excellent coffee. Highly recommended!

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.
