“Who needs to go to Italy?”
Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

When a restaurant like this is in Amsterdam and such a great place to eat. Oh man. Just coming in you get such a great open and smiling welcome. The starters are fantastic. We has the eggplant with cheese tomatoes and other veggies. Delicious. To follow Pizza. I'm not a Pizza man but these were something else. One picant salami and the other funghi. Superb. Great coffee and a house wine of noble qualities. Worth a visit and then another quickly afterwards. Thanks. Gracie Mille Tante!!

“Memorable, truly Italian meal”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

A memorable, truly Italian meal. The wine and much of the food was from around Perugia . The menu was limited to starters, pasta, pizza, cheese and baracchi oil. I put it as a menu item, but only because it enhanced every dish. Tomato/mozzarella was a starter but I opted for tomatoes with basil. We were given some bread cooked in the wood-fired oven and dripping with the oil. The tomatoes were small, red and shone with the oil. This was accompanied by beautiful fresh bread. Our mains, lasagna for me - like no lasagna I’ve ever had. The pasta was thin and crisp on the edge; there was a little sauce but what there was, was perfection. My wife had a bowl of spaghetti with ndjima , a spicy sauce of pork, garlic, garlic-and-chilli and tomato. Another glistening offering; simple, but perfect. We probably had enough carbs for a month, but every mouthful was marvellous. The food was a delight, but the bill was a nice surprise too. The wine was unexpectedly good, a full-bodied Italian red, and most reasonably priced.

“Definitely Authentic Italian”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

The food was exquisitely simple and exceptionally fresh. The ambience was quaint and rustic. Service was attentive, (we are English speaking so communication was a little challenging but this just added to the charm). This place gives a good experience with excellent value.
