Description: Our restaurant has been a landmark in the Jordaan neighbourhood for almost 20 years, where it is known for making both local guests and tourists feel immediately welcome with its warm and friendly service. Our dishes are simple, fresh, flavourful and well priced. We offer a range of pizza and pasta dishes as well as an extensive selection of meat or fish courses, all accompanied with the perfect Italian wine. Our restaurant is always full of people drawn to its winning combination of delicious food, reasonable prices and intimate ambience, we recommend that reservations be made between Thursday and Saturday.

We went to this Restaurant becase we stay in the B&B upstairs...We order some salad, soup, pasta at the night of "King's Day" and there was terribly busy in the restaurant. Food quality was very "average" and we will go esle where if we back in the B&B again (Because the accomodation was so nice..)

Great pizza place at 9.50 Euros, pastas a bit more. Very fast, food was well prepared and portions were generous. Wine and beer available and both are priced below typical Amsterdam high prices. We stayed upstairs, and didn't see the need to travel any great distance when this place was right below us.

My husband and I had dinner here on May 6th. Family run restaurant in nice neighborhood. Locals in the restaurant which is a good sign. My husband had the tagliatelle with salmon and I had the salmon lasagna, which was a new dish for me. Both were quite good. Liked the herb butter that came with the bread.
Great service and friendly staff.

Went here a few days ago. Sat down eating the starters and we see a cat in the restaurant. Myself and my girlfriend really like cats and dogs but not in a restaurant.

When you eat out you are putting a lot of trust in the people cooking the food. You are trusting that they are adhering to a basic level of hygiene. Now, it may be that the staff were all very clean or for all I know there is a litter tray in the kitchen. The fact is, as a diner, I do not know.

When we raised our concerns to the staff but they simply did not care and were very rude about the fact. Yes, you may like cats in your restaurant but you are providing a service to other people.

We left the restaurant part way through our starters, leaving our drinks. We only paid a few euros for the drinks and went to find a better restaurant. As luck would have it we ended up finding the best restaurant we have eaten in in the whole of Europe.

Grabbed a pizza here on Kingsday upon recommendation of tripadvisor. Quality was excellent and service very fast considering the day and amount of customers.
