Our apartment host said this was the best Italian restaurant in Amsterdam. I can't compare it with any others but it certainly was delicious, friendly wait-staff and good Tuscan wine to go with it. Recommended.

We recently visited this restaurant because it was recommended to us. We were not disappointed. The waiter was great and the kitchen make a delicious vegetarian dish for me even though it wasn't on the menu. The wine was great too. If you find yourself...More

We came there just before closing time. We got our dishes fast and enjoyed the food. The prices are a bit expensive, but yet value for money. Drinks are as cheap as in other cafes. You can see the kitchen from the table and flames...More

We came as a small group, just for coffee chat. The location is nice and quiet, just slightly of the main street. Coffee and snacks where good, but the service was slow and seemingly not welcoming to an outsider (?).

Almost immediately after we arrived in this restaurant, the waiter slapped down two anti-pasti onto the table in front of us -- bread with some kind of ham on. I explained that I do not eat meat, and after a while she brought a bruschetta...More

Eating in an Italian restaurant is so often a compromise. Not so with A Tavola: they choose to NOT serve pizza's, instead focussing on the wonderful and rich cuisine that makes the Italian kitchen the best in the world (my humble opinion anyway). A Tavola...More

Not one of the many 'fake' Italian restaurants in Amsterdam. It is the kind of trattoria you will find in Italy with basic but honest food. In my opinion two points need attention: service and prices of wine. Service: no problem with casual, but too...More

Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)

Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
