As soon as you walk in you want to love this place. The high ceilinged room is welcoming and buzzing with energy, as tables are angled to appreciate the action of the open kitchen, a source of visual entertainment. The menu offers many things beckoning to be tried. However while everything was tasty it just missed the A+ quality we... More

Visited Toscanini on August 15 2016 for a special dinner. This place is always busy and packed with patrons, so booked well in advance. Although we didn't receive any bread whilst waiting for our meals to arrive, the service was very good. Our waitress was friendly and helpful throughout. However the first course, panzanella, was very forgettable... just a plate... More

We ate here because we were recommended by two different people that this was a great place. We were so glad we did. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. We each had pasta and it was so authentic. The wine list was above average for sure and the prices were reasonable for the quality of the food.... More

Party atmosphere in a loft room in the Jordan. Great Minestrone, creative panzanella (bread soaked in a tomato vinaigrette) with 3 sautéed shrimp. Pasta alla Gricia bland missing something Risotto with calamari excellent, but the calamari were as hard as a rock. Disgusting. Left them

great food in one of the best areas(Jordaan) of Amsterdam. However, not cheap and not easy to get table if not reserved in advanced.

Recommended to us and booked weeks in advance. Friendly staff, although not rushed, service is efficient and tables are turned as this is so popular with locals as well as tourists. We did enjoy the meal but slightly underwhelmed - perhaps expectations from reading other reviews were a little too high.. I was expecting better decor - open kitchen which... More

A friend recommended this restaurant so we went with friend(8 total) to have dinner. We had booked well in advance as this place is fully booked every day. Although the restaurant can seat a lot of people this does not influence the atmosphere. With a lager party you have to have a set menu but you can choose if you... More

A travel friend had recommended Toscanini's to us. I asked her to name one restaurant in Amsterdam that we must visit....she said Toscanini's, and she was "spot on". We started with wine (ooh la la, what a selection!), followed by olives stuffed with veal. They were excellent. We ordered pasta with red shrimp, which was a plate of heaven. Our... More

Amazing meal and service! Best meal all week! We had the table in front of the kitchen! Phenomenal! Chef was so friendly and helped us decide on what to order. Everything was fresh and delicious. Homemade pastas with unbelievable sauces. Veal so tender you didn't need a knife. Great wine selection too! Definitely should go! Highly recommend! My husband and... More

Looks small from the outside but large, light and welcoming inside, with an open kitchen. Excellent Italian food and wine, always very busy but staff friendly even though so busy. Good choice for a special evening as quite pricey but food is delicious!!

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
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.
