“Great little place away from the downtown tourist route, great food and impeccable service.”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled upon this restaurant after shopping for bikes at Overtoom, and were delighted with the tagliatelle with shrimp and ravioli with capsicum and nuts. Not to mention the friendly, warm service we had from the waiter, who translated the menu from Dutch to English, fact that indicates this is really a restaurant for the Dutch, and not a downtown tourist trap.

“Outdoor Plaza, Perfect Pizza”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

On the hottest summer night, this is a cool, relaxing place to be. Very few tourists. Mostly a neighborhood hangout with stupendous wood-fired, thin crust pizza, using the freshest toppings. Even on a busy night your wait won't be longer than 15 minutes. The large plaza with tables and chairs in front of the restaurant is where everyone congregates on hot nights. There is plenty of seating inside. Find a waitperson outside and wait on the bench under the tree for something to open up. Soon you'll be eating crispy, creative pizza, too.

“Great neighbourhood restaurant”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Great little place to have close by. Pizza's are great; mostly get them to take out. Lovely low key place to take guests when visiting; the duck was delicious. Starters are pretty generous portions. Haven't tried dessert yet...

“Recently renewed kitchen pays off”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Along with a new kitchen came some new dishes. The pizza`s were always more than fine, but I like the new starters theyve added to the menu. Atmosphere is nice and attracts kind of a 'trendy' crowd. I`m always in doubt wether to go to 'de pizzabakkers' at the overtoom or to Forno. If you want to sit outside, go to Forno.

“Great little place”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Eat here fairly frequently as it's in my neighbourhood, and always enjoy it thoroughly. Great atmosphere, warm and intimate, friendly staff. Food is pretty good overall, and it's always easy to get service due to the small size of the restaurant. If you're a tourist its a great place to experience Amsterdam dining with the locals. Definitely book before coming, as it fills up very quickly. Readily recommended.
