The restaurant has a really nice ambient and the pizza's are delicious. Once ordered, it only took around 15 minutes until the food was brought to the table. The pizza has a very fine crust and the toppings are really fresh. I would go here again when I come back to this area of Amsterdam. Thumbs up :)

An almost local place for a varied selection of good pizza and Italian cuisine. The pizza are best – large and flavourful, good selection and fresh flavours. A table outdoors in Summer under the magnificent old trees in a courtyard is best

Fresh, delicious Italian cuisine:) Fantastic slim pizza with beautiful Toskana wine, fresh burrata with salad. Service was perfect, very pleasant. A lot of space beetween tables. Really good place!

We enjoyed our calzone, the portions are very generous, you won't leave this place hungry. The crust was very tasty and thin. The staff is attentive. When you are in the neighborhood, this is a good Italian to stop for a bite.

I was pleasantly surprised by my dining experience.

When arrived we noticed that the terrace outside of the restaurant was busy as was the inside when we were shown to our table. When the waitresse arrived to take our order I asked for a "aubergine lasagne" starter to be told that it was... More

Food is okay-is he but the service is all over the place and never at your table when you need them. Like a choir without a conductor.

We got there and ordered drinks while we waited for a table outside to open up when one of the male staff members came and asked if we'd be... More

Please avoid this place if you have any interest in having a nice meal. Awful service from start to finish. Despite the fact that there was an overpriced menu with barely anything to choose from - the worst part was the service. Amsterdam is notorious for bad service and restaurants like these are exactly why. Our first waiter forgot many... More

My wife and I ate here on our last night in the city. The restaurant was convenient for us because it was located within 2 min walk from where we stayed. Initial impression was ok when we stepped inside the restaurant. Staff was friendly. The menu was all in Italian or Dutch. They don't serve any bread unless you order... More

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.
