Food was amazing considering the price but staff were unfriendly and didn't take us seriously I think because we look younger than we are even though all of us are waitresses are selves. Only place we didn't tip during our trip to Amsterdam.

Everything for 5 Euro, delicious Italian food. We tried Lasagna, spaggheti Carbonara, Al Salmone. Could not complain about anything. Staff, service and food... everything is high quality.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
