This is two reviews in one as we dined here twice in the space of a week. Travelled with work and an Expo being held in the city. Late night dinner both nights and we weren't disappointed.

A waiter called us inside as we were walking around looking for a place to eat. We probably would have kept walking but we were hungry and it looked like a nice place judging by the friendly staff. The food was nice but we had to ask numerous times for the bill and wait for at least 20 minutes to... More

In Amsterdam looking for authentic Italian food? Go here! We (a party of 9) were greeted like old friends and felt like we were being treated to the best they could serve. We had the feeling they genuinely cared and wanted you to enjoy their food and their company. We are used to struggling with two very picky teenage daughters... More

We are really un happy concerning the service provided by this restaurant. We reserved a week before and when we came our table was given to another group because "they were 8". Never had this expérience before. An exemple of what no to do.
