We went to this restaurant on 14/10/2017 for a pasta dinner on the evening before Amsterdam Marathon. The dishes came fast. The food was tasty and so was the atmosphere.

We all had the pizza with the salami picante. Good crust, great amount of these and nice salami. We had a barbera d'alba which paired very nicely with the pizzas. Friendly and happy waiters.

Thanks to Manrico, we had a lovely dinner in a very relaxed atmosphere. He gave us good advice on the wine, a delicious Alturis Sauvignon. I loved the grilled vegetables for starter and the risotto with funghi. Will be back when in town again!
