“Typical italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

The restaurant breathes italian all over, not only because of the food or all the waiters working there, but also it is kind of informal and cool atmosphere. Don't go if you are looking for something fancy, but it is for sure good quality of food.
The starters and main courses were really good, although deserves were just ok. We follow the waiter recommendation about the wine and he was right on key.

“Very good food, service lacking respect for their guests”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. Upon arrival we almost turned before entering due to the shady entrance with Christmas lights still covering the windows. To their defence, due to Queen's day the day after a temporary cart was almost covering the door in. Outside heavy rap was playing and an ongoing street feast with drunk and happy people outside was kind of odd but not too disturbing. What was worse and very strange was that our waiter who initially was very friendly and serviceminded suddenly disappeared. Sometimes out in the street to greet friends, in fact so did most of the staff during our dinner. The guests could easily watch this going on through the windows. The dining room was barely half full but we had to wait for everything. After the entrance dishes were served we were and felt kind of left to manage on our own. Too bad since the kitchen did a great job. We had great aubergine and Parmigiano gratain and really good veal with black truffle. Their special whisky flambee fresh spinach pasta in a Parmigiano wheel was a nice idea. However while the pasta was quite good there was a very cloggy and too large portion of cheese. The staff is Italian and when my fiance asked where his potatoes were I heard the waiter shout to his colleague to make the order to the kitchen. While the potatoes were smoking hot just out of the oven the meat was almost cold. Too bad since the meat was great. When the potatoes finally came long after I had to start eating my pasta the meat dish was ruined by the poor, cold meat. What a waste to be such a well executing chef/kitchen and then throw it all away due to bad service. Had tartufo's for dessert which were lovely! When we commented on the cold meat we got no excuse but did not pay for the dessert. In our opinion, better not having to pay for the meat, we told them three times about it before it finally came. Dishes overpriced, especially since the lack of service dragged down the total experience. If the staff rather than taking care of its guests is too busy participating in the street party outside I think someone ought to rethink and do something about it. We do not recommend this restaurant. Sad since the food was actually good.

“Speak as you find, this is good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

So it's an Italian restaurant in Amsterdam, just take your time and let the waiters guide you, they really know how to serve and the chef knows how to flavour his food, great restaurant and friendly service definitely worth a visit, go with the recommendations and you will be pleasantly surprised, good choice of wines and excellent service....

“Avoid at all costs - awful restaurant and over priced!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

We visited restaurant D'antica for my partner's 30th birthday. When we made the booking via email they promised me that they would bring her a beautiful cake to mark this special occassion. On arrival we were greeted by one of the unfriendly staff who showed us to our table making us feel most unwelcome. When we were about to order we asked the server what the chef's menu was...his response in an ignorant and arrogant manor was ' I dont know, it could be chicken, meat or fish I dont know'!! Anyway we avoided the starters as they were totally overpriced and ordered steak and the pasta dish - again overpriced. We didnt order any dessert as I was promised a beautiful cake would be brought for my partner's birthday - this never happened and when the server was questioned about it, he just shrugged his shoulders pretending he didnt know anything about it!! To top it off, whilst we were having our meal, one of the employees decides to go to the mezzanine level located just above our table and smoke a joint!!! Not the most pleasant of smells whilst your trying to eat!! This restaurant is awful, the service is terrible and they are so unfriendly and so unprofessional. I was never so glad to leave that place with what was suppose to be a special night!! I would definately avoid this place at all costs, there are so many other nice restuarants out there that are more reasonable where the staff our so friendly and welcoming!!
