We sat and watched passerby as we ate bowl of pesto pasta. Right on the busy Damrak street in the centre of Amsterdam. Canal boat trips are right opposite. The pasta menu is huge, all types and flavours, good portions and not overly tourist prices. Very busy at the time of our visit, but staff were working hard to serve... More

After a long day tour we decided to eat close by when returned from the tour and we went into the pasta bar. We ordered the carbonara pasta but it was a bit dry barely sauce in it and the hawaii pizza which was also poor in content (a bit of ham and pineapple), food was average but the service... More

Prices are quite cheap in contrast to the nearby restaurants. Staff is nice and tried to be helpful but their English was very problematic to understand each other at that time.

We were on a tight budget coming to Amsterdam and this was an ideal place for lunch, we ordered the special which was pasta for €4.99 plus a Heineken for €3. Got a table straight away, plus service was fast maybe to fast with the meal arriving quicker than the drinks. Would recommend 👌🏻

We were hungry and it was late in the evening around 10pm. We passed by and could see that the Pasta Bar was very lively and busy so decided to stop there for a bite to eat. You could choose to eat inside or take a table out on the sidewalk. I ordered spaghetti carbonara which came quite quickly and... More

This is the place that me and my partner passed but have questioned . Don't let such place fool you , service is average not too slow not too quick ... the mains on the food menu were pretty much good can't say any negatives. However my highlight was their hot apple pie , I tried it once . And... More

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.
