I was visiting Amsterdam on business and had 1 free night to meet up with an old friend (a local). What luck we stumbled upon Caffe 500! It's a small Italian restaurant with high end & delicious food yet it has a very comfortable, local & down to earth vibe. The restaurant is small and we ended up sitting at... More

The restaurant is small so reservation required. They change menu daily. We really enjoyed food and atmosphere.

Very nice Italian place! We went here just for a tasting and it ended up in a fastastic evening! The restaurant uses good products and the dishes looked and tasted great. The restaurant is small, but that makes it very cozy to have dinner. The staff was very friendly and we will go definitly return to this place more often!... More

This is the perfect spot if you like authentic Italian food. Recommended is the anitpasto misto. A delicious combination of the appetizers from the menu. The staff and owner are very friendly. Also good wines and desserts.

We stepped in earlier in the day on spec and were immediately taken by the warmth of the staff and the warmth of the room. We had no hesitation in booking a table for the evening. We had a super meal, typically Italian, beautifully prepared and presented. Only a small restaurant, but oozing in ambience. One of my bugbears in... More

Went there with some friends. The food was very nice and reasonably priced. Sure, it's possible to find a cheaper Italian restaurant in Amsterdam, but it will hardly offer better food. The menu is constantly changing and seems to be oriented towards seasonal products. The staff is very friendly and you will feel very welcome.

The food in this restaurant is nice-ish! If you're looking for only nice food this is a good place to go. However a good restaurant it's not only based on food. Went there twice and one of the things that made me give the average rating is that it's a extremely loud place(if you want to speak with the people... More

A small restaurant with great heart and great food. Enjoy the appetizers by sharing with a friend. Then select a main dish and/or pasta. You can not go wrong. Wine pairings are also excellent, and not too pricey. Share desserts as well. Each time we ate here, we were thrilled The head waitress is warm and welcoming in English, Italian... More

This lovely Italian place with its Napolitan chef serves great food. Antipasti are very good and not too meaty. Main dishes are very worthwhile. Friendly, genuinly Italian staff. Would definitely recommend going there.

Small and delicious Italian restaurant. The menu is not fixed, it changes every day with a variety of fresh meal. Cozy atmosphere. Unique decor with a real car at the entrance .Great service despite the full house. I loved the food , tasty . Not to be missed. Maybe reservation is needed. We were lucky. We arrived early and they... More

Staying in De Pijp

Neighbourhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
