Casual dining off a small alley. Ordered the anitpasto to share which was terrific - highly recommend. Had grilled vegetables, steak tartar and lovely spreads and cheeses - almost a meal in itself. We had two pasta dishes, one with meat and one with seafood - both good. Waiters were fun and lively.

We stumbled upon Vasso as we were looking to stop for a drink prior to having dinner elsewhere. While we were enjoying our prosecco, the waitress brought us some bruschetta. It was amazing! We decided to cancel our other reservation and stay for dinner. We started with tuna carpaccio, which was equally as amazing as the bruschetta. Dinner was a... More

Vasso is a consistently great Italian restaurant situated in the heart of Amsterdam. Fresh ingredients and traditional dishes served in a cosy environment. Also, great service!

we had a nice meal there, the staff was welcoming and the aperitif good. The pasta were al dente but they didn't seem to have a large selection of beers. I haven't tested the pizzas so can't say much about it. The price was ok.

This is a good restaurant but our experience was ruined by a rogue chilli in a seafood pasta dish. We have eaten fruit to di mare in many places including Italy and it has never had a hot chilli in it. Imagine my wife's shock and surprise when she bit into o a very hot chilli in a dish that...

Italian environment (you can also speak Italian with the attendants), tidy and cozy dining room. All dishes are delicious, in my case, 'penne a la puttanesca' was hot (chilli) and incredible. Wine was also the highest quality for a cheap price. A must to go place while in Amsterdam.

Vasso is a typical (authentic) Italian restaurant. The menu is as one would expect, but they really do a good job of it. Personal favorites here are vittello tonnato, salmtimboca followed by tiramisu. We had an excellent bottle of BOLGHERI ROSSO SERRE NUOVE from Tenuta dell’Ornellaia, Toscana at Euro 89,00 (a fraction of big brother ORNELLAIA).Good service.

Very central in Amsterdam, reachable with the tram. Had great food and amazing wine. The owner was there and talked to us for a while, very nice guy. Can be very romantic or a lovely night with the family.

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
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.
