My wife and I had a very enjoyable meal here on our first night in Amsterdam, enjoyed it so much we came back for three more nights. Good Italian food served piping hot, with friendly staff. Thank you.

Considering this restaurant is on Damrak the food was lovely. We had pizza, carbonara and spaghetti bolanese which was delicious. It's a shame that our waiter wasn't particularly friendly and really needs to cheer up, no need to snatch the menus. Reasonably well priced with great food!

Went in for afternoon launch with a big group of us. Food was average at best. Appreciate the city is busy however we were asked to leave literally two minutes after finishing our meal. Found this very offensive and totally un acceptable.

Similar menu to many other restaurants and cafes this one looked busy so we chose here. Pleasantly surprised meat was cooked perfectly, sauces were tasty and food was all hot and fresh, 2 drinks and 2 mains and the bill was reasonable. Would recommend it.

I found this place last minute as I was returning to the metro. It looked appealing from the outside so I gave it a shot. The seating was a little cramped, but not uncomfortable. They maximized the space available. I had the chicken and mushroom penne and it was amazing. The beer is nice and cold and the food is... More

We traveled straight from the airport into the center so we're absolutely starving. When we saw pizza we thought it was an easy bet. Both ordered pizza with chips to share. In fairness, one pizza would do two people with side. But we were so hungry! Service was fast, pizzas were warm and clearly freshly made. Pizza quality was great,... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
