Tired of walking around, and in need of an easy but yummy meal - this place was perfect. Reasonable prices, big portions, great taste; and the owners were very kind and cheerful

This restaurant was about a block from an apartment we rented and was very good. The eats are typical italian and are very tasty. We were there for dinner and everything was cooked to order and very fresh.

Located in the non-touristic quiet street. Delicious Italian dishes such as pasta and salad. Very comfortable atmosphere and service

Lovely meal ..... fresh and cooked to order. Salad 'Carciofi' greens, artichokes, olives + pleasant vinaigrette. There are others; look at web for their menu. Pasta was ravioli and tagatelle verde (with veggie in tomato sauce). Both tasted homemade pasta as very light. Desert was homemade Pana Cotta; yum! Small Italian eatery on Hazenstraat at Elandgracht. Everyone was there: seniors,... More

We were after some Italian close to where we staying so this one popped up and had good reviews, so were slightly disappointed with the meal. I plumped for Lasagne as I didn't fancy tackling a pizza. It looked impressive when it arrived and had good flavours but it seemed to have a distinct lack of meat and an unnecessary... More

Very cozy place, perfect work, and best food. Ask for the lasagna 4 formaggio, very very good and any pizza.

I have been coming to La Festa for years. I have tried many delicious things on the menu but these days my friend and I always order the usual - a cannelloni for her and the spinach ricotta tortellini for me. Super delicious and very reasonably priced. I would strongly recommend this family owned restaurant with super friendly service.

Slightly off the beaten track but worth the walk. Great food and nice cosy atmosphere. My boyfriend and I both enjoyed our meal!

La Festa was just down the street from our B&B so we walked there for dinner. The restaurant is not very big and was very busy. I ordered the spaghetti bolognese and my husband ordered the veal saltimbocca. We had a salad with Dutch cheese before the main course. Both meals were very good! We went back another night for...

I was wandering around the canals of Jordaan trying to find somewhere to eat. I was travelling alone so wanted somewhere I would feel comfortable. I came across La Festa, there wasn't a menu outside but there were plenty of people inside, even though it was around 6pm on a Sunday. I wasn't disappointed. There were 2 big groups of... More

Our restaurant has been a landmark in the Jordaan neighbourhood for almost 20 years, where it is known for making both local guests and tourists feel immediately welcome with its warm and friendly service.

Our restaurant is always full of people drawn to its winning combination of delicious food, reasonable prices and intimate ambience, we recommend that reservations be made between Thursday and Saturday.

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.
