Nice local Italian with good dishes. No pizza's but tasty dishes for all. When busy, things can be a little chaotic but the service is up to standard, and so is the food.

We had a lovely meal here. We wanted somewhere local to where we were staying and cane upon this on tripadvisor. Great Italian food with good wine, all at very reasonable prices. My husband loved his carpaccio, he had a truffle risotto, and I had a spinach, walnut and blue cheese pasta for mains. Absolutely delicious. I am assured that... More

Can't fault the food. Cod was perfect, with a very decent sized portion. My friend had the tagliatelle which was also very nice. It should get 5 stars, if only they added some more staff. The girl working the terrace was a bit overwhelmed. We didn't have to wait long though. Would recommend in a heartbeat.

The melanzane, the pasta bolognese, the Nero D'Avola and the grappa were quite good. Very friendly staff.

We had dinner here twice. It is very popular so make sure to make a reservation. All food we had was very good, but I particularly like the starters.

We visited the restaurant with family because of its location in the "Rivierenbuurt" area. The location is very nice, near the RAI and in a cosy, lively street in a great district in Amsterdam. There is a comfortable terrace with heating for the medium temperature evenings. The staff is friendly and attentive (not in an excessive way). And of course,... More

Nice terrace, good place for a drink. However, pasta not al dente but overcooked and offering parmigiano with a tuna pasta is simply not very Italian
