Very unpleasant experience and disgreeable staff. We need a place to relax and feed our babies with a plate of pasta. The day before we had a good experience here and we thought to repeat it. I asked for a table and the hospitality was...not good for the first moment because the staff was afraid we could occupied a table for just a plate of pasta. Ok, that's fine. I said we would order a bottle of wine, too and we was inviting other friends to join us and have dinner. Waiting for them, we order a plate of pennette with tomato, expressly asking not spicy ( for babies!). Pasta was so spicy, they was joking us, to the detriment of children. They was so hungry and they can't have dinner because of their avarice! Shame!More

Amazing food, fantastic and friendly staff! The only thing missing is some gluten free options for pasta and the paninis but the menu has other options that gluten free folk can enjoy!

Trying to stay near the hotel, this little place has both inside and outside dining. We chose outside, trying to avoid crowded inside. Wait staff a little slow, but maybe too few to service the number of diners. Food was acceptable but nothing to write...home about. Pay for food inside at the counter, not the wait staff. Biggest hitch - no toilets accessible for guests. Need to go, you're outta luck. Really? Sure encourages you to eat and run. While average rating, would not recommend because of last point.More

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay. It is a good location for people watching, plus it is a little off the beaten path. I had the Greek salad the first time, which hit the spot when traveling and not getting enough vegetables. My...husband had the lasagne. He said it was good, but I didn’t taste it. The owners are very nice. It appears that it is run by a family. Our second visit we stopped by for a snack and drinks. We asked the waitress to bring us hot water, tea bags, and glasses of ice so we could make iced tea. It seems that they only offer bottled iced tea in Amsterdam. It was nice of them to accommodate us.More

From start to finish, a total disaster. The restaurant is nicely presented with internal balcony and wooden staircase. That's where the positives end. The menu, although vast, gave no options for vegans. Fresh pasta was all with eggs, they explained, as "freshly made". Even the...penne I thought?? Weird. Turns out it wasn't all made with eggs and, guess what? NOT fresh either! So, salad it was. And OMG was it horrible. A mix of fresh and roasted vegetables in a huge bowl. Everything tasted like fish, as the vegetables were probably roasted together with salmon. Yuck! Extremely expensive, overrated and total waste of time and money. Bottom line, don't play Italian if you ain't one.More

Nice little neighborhood restaurant with good food and pleasant service. Husband had chicken scalloping in spicy red sauce and I had penne con pollo with a nice small side salad. Just off the busy thoroughfares near the museum quarter. Easy to walk to for a...quiet meal.More
