Pasta was just ok. Not super fresh but reasonably tasty. Also reasonable value for the money. Overall ok.

I am Italian and can say that here you eat like you would in Italy. I have been twice and all dishes have tried have been excellent. Prime ingredients, authentic flavors, really good wine. Service is quick and attentive. Totally recommended.

Recommended by a local, we were keen to try this small Italian restaurant. It is a narrow space, more open. At the front, but somewhat claustrophobic at the rear, overlooking the kitchen and at head level a narrow shelf, lined with wine but at a...disconcerting lean. The menu has a couple of specials and a selection of starters and mains. We started with the Vitello Tonnato, a classic. It was thin slices of veal, with dollops of Tonnato and a couple of capers. The other was beans and chicory, a puree of white beans with a stack of cooked chicory, tasty but tough. We then had ravioli with pumpkin and penne with porcini and sausage. Both dishes could easily be made better by the average home cook. Tiramisu was two savioradi biscuits, sandwiched with marscapone. The kitchen apparently is produce driven, but it doesn't show. Some inspiration with the produce would make for a return visit.More

We normally stay down the street at the Banks Mansion so this is an easy walk. We visited Al Bacaro a couple of times back in 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed it so thought we'd try again with the couple we were traveling with. Once again...it was excellent! Glad we had our reservation for 7PM and promptly greeted and seated by friendly staff. The carpaccio, spaghetti salsiccia, caprese salad were are very good. Reasonably priced dishes. Only item that was just OK was the risotta. Nice bottle of reasonably priced chianti and another very nice dinner. We shall return on each trip back to Amsterdam for excellent pasta.More
