We ate their twice and had great meals. It is on a a side street and has an excellent staff and great service. Seems to be off the tourist track and thus the fare is far superior. We would hit this again and again. Really nice setting perfect for couples.

Found this Italian restaurant near our hotel but it certainly was a local restaurant and not touristy at all. How lucky we were. I have now aten here twice - first meal was perfectly al dente linguine with clams and prawns. Second meal was even more delicious - smoked white fish antipasta starter served with buffalo mozzarella and roasted peppers, onions, capers and basil.

This was followed by outstanding pizza (best pizza base EVER) with crispy perfect slightly chewy dough with aubergines, bresaola, rocket, Parmesan shavings and balsamic glaze. And finally - stewed apricots with rosemary and a mascarpone cram!!

My son was so happy with his pizza n vanilla pod ice cream.

Service was friendly and helpful.

The title speaks for itself. Ended up there at random and what a great surprise. Great food, great (Italian)cook, nice area, with locals...I will come back for sure at each of my next trips to Amsterdam.
Service was average, young ladies not always smart.

By sheer chance we stumbled into this wonderful restaurant. We arrived via train from London via Brussels tired and hungry. Our B/B (ranked #1) is around the corner. They suggested trying it. We sat outside with locals, a blanket provided as it was chilly. We sat for almost 2 hours. The Netherlands was playing Spain in the WC and the neighborhood was crazy fun. We were so lucky to find it. Two meals there...both wonderful. You have to order the bruschetta. Do not miss this place. It is a nice walk from anywhere.

This place was recommended to us by a local and the food and wine was very good. The pizzas were among the best we have had anywhere, including Italy. It is very busy though and the service is a bit sporadic as the staff seem to be run off their feet. We didn't book, but were lucky enough to get a table for 2 at about 7.30pm. It fills up quickly around 8pm.

Thank Brisbears
