Welcome as always so warm. We were ten minutes early but were given a glass of Proseco while we waited for the table. Seated right on time and relaxed while we listened to the live Jazz duo and checked out the art exhibition. It's a small place so you are immediately involved with everything going on there. How they manage to fit so many people into the limited space and make you feel as if you're the only guest there is remarkable.

Menu is easy. There are only a few selections and recommendations on offer. The starters Aubergine bake and Chicken livers in Tomato sauce were delicious. We ordered one pasta dish of tuna in tortellini and one pizza Sausage and Funghi. Huge pizza and pasta portions which we tackled willingly. The wine was a Merlot from house suppliers Ruggeri which was light and complimented the main course.

We defaulted on dessert. There was simply no room! The coffees were duppio ristretto and cappuccino with a small liqueur from the house.

The table waiting was superb. The evening was a delight. Please go there if you are in Amsterdam and experience it for yourself!

If you're looking for a cosy authentic Italian food, this is the place you have been looking for! You might not notice this restaurant as this is situated in one of the various smallest alley of amsterdam. But I can assure you it's worth looking for it.

Their italian dishes are authentic mostly imported from italy. First we had a freshly sliced italian prosciutto and selection of cheeses such a local mozzarella, sheep's cheese and goat chease drizzeld with honey. Pizza doughs are freshly made and stone-baked. Ask for the pizza with spicy italian sausage (this was my favourite) . This is really delish! You might also love this combination of stone-baked pear with melted blue cheese or the asparagus with egg and shredded parmazan cheese on top.

Our waiter served us well and served us their best red wine. Service is good and the restaurant has a cosy and relaxed atmosphere.If you're in the neigbourhood, don't hesitate to try this restaurant!
A small tip: if you're going with a huge group I would advise you to make reservation. As you could see in the pictures attached it's a cosy small restaurant.
