“By far the best Italian of its kind in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

I do not avoid pizzas, in fact I love them. But for real Italian food, and in particular slow food, you have to be here.
I have eaten here a couple of times now, and everytime the service is Italian hospitality, warm, well meant and professional. You can have a romantic dinner for two or have dinner with a small group, it is all perfect. Our last visit was with a group of 11, and all plates and drinks arrived at the same time. Perfect. Food was good, we were listened to for some personal wishes. Everything was combined with nice wines. And the place itself is just lovely.
It is not cheap, but hey, if you want that, go eat a pizza. If you like to have a nice evening out, go here!

“One of the best Italian experiences outside of Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I had a great evening here, out dining solo on a business trip. Already when entering the small cosy, yet modern, place I felt like I was in an Italian osteria. Great service and great answers to all my questions about the menu. The food was all I was hoping for, great home cooked Italian food, fresh pasta with summer truffle, sage butter, lovely cooked pork with traditional Toscan side dishes, and even a good sweet ending of the meal. Great (and affordable) wine recommendations, and everything genuine Italian.

I am coming back next time!

“Excellent Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We had a wonderful meal at Pianeta Terra. Great food, very warm service and we were delighted by the attention that the staff all paid to our son's food allergy.

I would highly recommend the restaurant for families looking for excellent, high end Italian cuisine.
