“Good family-run restaurant; friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

We enjoyed this restaurant, the service was very friendly We were advised against the pasta flambe (waiter - "It's for tourists! Try a special instead!"), and the prices reasonable for the city. My husband had a tortellini in cream sauce (yum!), which was slightly better than my tagliatelli bolognese (waiter - "it's rustic, shrug"). We were also served wonderful bread with herb aioli and olive paste as well as another small starter without charge.

“Just finished an excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Just finished an excellent meal here. Had 3 glasses of wine a piece at ?3\glass, its super affordable. Very good decor! Tables are close together, like everywhere in Amsterdam, so expect to hear everything your neighbor is saying. Came on recommendation from the Doubletree hotel we were staying at. After walking around the city for 8 hours, we were wanting to stay fairly close. This was easy to get to, just off the main street straight out of the hotel. Greeted by a server just inside the door, he gave us our choice of tables. Only 2 other tables in the restaurant around 630pm on Sunday night. Appetizer of antipasto italiano. 4 meats over a bed of mixed greens with grated parm and chopped walnuts. We were served 2 small brushettas to try. They gave us bowl of small toasts with an olive pate and a garlic herb butter spread. The butter spread was excellent and if you like olives, that was also very good. The server gave us a rundown of all the specials written on a blackboard - 3 apps, 5 pastas, and 5 meat dishes, and a dessert in addition to the regular menu. We chose the beef and oyster mushrooms in a sauce and gnocchi in a marinara and baked with cheese on it. Both were excellent, steak was cooked perfectly. After dinner was 2 espressos and the chocolate cake with chocolate sauce and drenched in mint sauce. That was excellent! Also, the white chocolate parfait with a shot of espresso poured over the top. Either/both is a must have! We were also offer end a limoncello to finish off the dinner, free of charge. If you like lemon or lemon alcohol, this is for you. Overall, service was excellent and I would absolutely recommend....would definitely go again if time permits. As an american, it was slow by our standards but, now is the time to slow down and enjoy the flavors and European life!

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

This places serves a lovely antipasti platter. Pastas were not very special (the truffle one had a very light truffle taste) but some are prepared at the table in a Parmesan cheese, a nice experience. Staff was very warm, real Italians.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

I am not a fan of Italian food, but this was something extraordinary.
Italia Oggi is a genuine Italian restaurant.
We've ate salads for the first course, and ordered a lasagna and gniocci for the main course (although it appeared as first course, but it was big enough to take it as a main course).
The desserts were fantastic (white chocolate with red fruits sauce and chocolate cake with mint (!!) sauce).
Angello the waiter was kind, funny and patient.

So, to summarize - definitely recommended
