Great pasta, great ribs. Quaint cosy restaurant. Very reasonably price. Quick efficient service. However, the warmth and friendliness is missing. But hey .,,.... if it is just great value for money food .... GO FOR IT

I am surprised by all the bad reviews. I thought the food here was amazing. I went for lunch & I had the tomato soup, bread with garlic butter & gnocchi - all was sooo good. I would give 5 stars but 2 things: 1....More

This restaurant is average. Service isn't up to par for a restaurant in such a central location. The food is average, ok but you can definitely do better. Prices too high for the quality. Also have to pay for water ?

We should have got up and left while reading other people's reviews while waiting for our service. Everything with tomato in it is either way too sweet or bland. We ordered a pepperoni pizza (5 pepperoni slices, hardly any cheese), a burger (meat tasted weird),...More

This is one of the many restaurants downtown in the vicinity of Centraalstation. The menu's typical Italian. The garlic cheese bread and pepperoni pizza were mediocre. The service was very good. Not recommended; too many options to stop here.

Not so cheap, but the ingredients which the meals were made were cheap. I'd pay less than 5€ for the 12,90€ hamburger.

We stumbled on this restaurant our first night in Amsterdam, jet-lagged and hungry. It's not far from the train station. It was a lucky choice, as we had a very good experience! We had #20 insalata caprese and added balsamic vinegar, #56 alla bolognese, #58...More

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
