“Really great pizza”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Best pizza we've tasted in a long time (with toppings sourced from Tuscany), in generous portions, at reasonable prices! They were willing to serve us just before 10pm and were very friendly. I'd definitely come back.

“another fairly good pizza place in Amsterdam”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

This pizzeria, like the other one of the Plantage Kerklaan, has the same formula of the whole chain. The pizza is nice, could do with a little more knowledge of the whole thing. A trip to Naples, my birthplace, would give the “ pizzaiolo” some food for thought (and some food experience!).

Pizza needs to be a little less crunchy especially if one thinks that pizza were, in origin, street food not meant to be eaten at a table. Therefore they should be folded twice and eaten while standing in the street ........as Neapolitan say, pizza al portafoglio, folded like a wallet.


So high crust (cornicione) but thin and soft bottom.......not crunchy!

Having said that the pizza is nice, the people friendly, the ambiance seeks to replicate an Italian trattoria which is more an idealised fantasy of a place that no longer exists in Italy.

But that’s ok.

Pizzas aren’t cheap but I liked them.


The place takes only plastic money...........I think this is stupid.

“Great food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

This is a lovely place to go for a meal. The restaurant is quite small, which makes for a pleasant, bustling environment. All the ingredients are really fresh - we really enjoyed our meal, served with Prosecco cocktails!
