Good Italian restaurant in a lovely quiet spot in Amsterdam. Get a window seat for a lovely view over the canals. Nothing spectacular food wise but very good overall. Ideal after a busy day in the city

My husband and I just finished dinner at Pastini. The food was so delicious and tasty. The soup was asparagus and the entree I had was like a creamy carbonara pasta with bacon. Our starter we're zucchini fries! Wow! We highly recommend this wonderful restaurant....More
