We were very disappointed by our recent visit to this very pretty restaurant. We decided to have an Italian meal on our recent visit to Amsterdam. We were intrigued by the name so we decided to go in. The inside is beautiful. There is a chandelier and booths which have little aquariums next to them. There is a silent old... More

Recommended by my travel guide, I decided to eat here on a Saturday evening. Cinema Paradiso is located in the Jordaan, a picturesque neighbourhood in Amsterdam, and I opted to sit outside to watch the (quiet) life passing by. With other restaurants either side, it is a relaxed atmosphere. I opted for the lasagne and wasn't disappointed; definitely the best... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the pizza's we had here however there are a few issues with this restaurant! The layout and décor is nice and the film playing in the background is a lovely touch. However, from the start our waiter was rather rude and abrupt but we decided to let this pass. Once we had finished our mains our plates were... More

Worked through seven courses of Italian food, all were delicious. Some I hadn't tried before, but the service and quality were first class. The restaurant was a little quiet, which normally means something is not right, but in this case, maybe because it was midweek. Would recommend this to anyone to try.

I have been there for dinner. All we had was very good. Atmospher was good. İt is one of the best İtalian restaurant I have eaten outside of İtaly. They dont make reservation. You can have good İtalian food and wines.

After reading the reviews we thought we give it a try and we were not disappointed. We entered to a beautiful aquarium and the Godfather was on the big screen which set the scene. We had a brilliant waiter who offered us his recommendations - great service. The wine list was extensive and the bottle we had was exquisite. Both... More

While surroundings inside are nice food is below average and so is service. This is not the amazing Italian food others are claiming it to be.

Must try Burrata with Parma Ham as antree. Pizzas are really delicious. Atmosphere and the service is really very nice. Price is of course not low but acceptable.

I like the place as it is very nice and well managed, The food is delicious, I have tried several things from pasta to fish to just the easy going pizza. My boyfriend tried “ filetto” and it was so soft and good that was melting in the month. They have a very good selection of wines from Sardinia and... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
