This is a local restaurant not in the usual tourist areas of Amsterdam. Good ambience, very good food, excellent service and very reasonable prices make a visit well worth while. There is an erxtensive menu of traditional Italian dishes, as well as pizzas. I had canneloni filled with veal, and my wife a pizza, and both were very tasty.

Good Italian restaurant. The staff is Italian and the cuisine is trattoria style. Desserts are good too! We did not try pizza, maybe next time.

Good Italian cooking, a good selection of wines and friendly staff. Prices are reasonable but access is somewhat restricted because of location.

Went here with friends. Nice table to seat all of us. Lovely starters to share; plenty of food! We had a meat or fish secondi which was true Italian in flavour, look and price. All in all perfect. Only downside is that we were kicked out before midnight as they wanted to close the restaurant ;-)

We visited for dinner and found this lovely family run restaurant to be friendly, busy and serving great food. Worth a visit to south Amsterdam. The 24 tram goes past the door. The chef made us a great anti pasti of cheese and charcuterie. The pasta dishes were filling and very tasty. We failed to find room for a dessert,... More

I have had dinner here several times and am always pleased with the quality of the food. The risotto is by far my favorite but their pizza is also excellent. Good portion sizes!

I visited 3 times last week with my partner. Our running club booked nearly 30 of us, at fairly short notice, for 'carb loading' on the Saturday night before the Amsterdam Marathon!!! They squeezed us all in, and I was a little worried if they would be able to look after us all, but they served each of our tables... More
