We visited on a Wednesday evening in early august. We were able to get a table in the window. The food was excellent, simple and very tasty. The restaurant was clean and the ambience a delight, we even got to meet the resident cat who obviously has a love for the food given his size! Highly recommended

The food was nice and clean,and the staff were friendly but the pizza was not as good as you would expect from an Italian restaurant.

Amsterdam is chock-a-block with restaurants of all stripes, many of which are not very good representatives of their cuisines, and the noise level can be pretty high. We chanced upon the Trattoria Fantasia because it was very close to our little hotel, but not part of the restaurant streets surrounding the Leidesplein. It's easy to overlook!

The food was excellent. I had the daily special of heart-shaped ravioli with shrimp and mini-zucchini, most enjoyable, and my dining partner the seafood risotto. The waiter, a charming man from Turkey, was attentive and helpful when needed. The room was quiet and we were able to converse! If we visit Amsterdam again this will definitely be on our list.

Note - the restaurant did not appear to be air-conditioned, which could be an issue on a hot day, fortunately rare in Amsterdam!

If you find yourself there (as we did) in the afternoons it might be full of well dressed people having dinner before going to see musical or popular theatre. Environment is a bit heavy, with a lot of weighty furniture, but if you are sitting close to a window you might feel a bit less buried into it.
Scampi risotto was very soft, milky and nutty, very good all in all. Sugo in penne all'arrabbiata was a bit too thick and sticky and green chili slices made it a bit unconvincing.
Fantasia's tuna salad should overcome the "straight form can" image and get more of self-expression.
Personnel is very attentive and dynamic which gives a bit of liveness to the total wood-and-leather feeling.
