Such a pleasant restaurant, dim lights, small room and good italian food combining for a quiet experience. The owner is a very lively and nice old man from Napoli that won't hesitate to start a conversation with you. Good pastas.

We could have checked tripadvisor, the lack of guests should perhaps warned us but we where tired of walking, hungry and thirsty. We where in an area along nieuwezijds voorburgwal where all restaurants where either Argentinan grill or Italian.
Having had Argentinan the day before we finally gave in and chose an Italian who seemed to have comfortable chairs...

The waiter was not rude, nor friendly but rather a lack of interest.
We ordered pizza and entrecote.
The pizza was plain, nothing special.
The entrecote with mozzarella and pesto was my worst meal in 5 days of our Amsterdam visit. The meat was overdone, like chewing shoe sole. Over poured with thick layers of almost melted mozzarella topped with pesto straight from the industrial jar. Luckily it was accompanied by uninspiring french fries with the crunch similar to the canals of Amsterdam....

Our adwise: Walk on by

Avoid this place !!! Wait 10 min before having the menu after asking for it!
Unrespectful, strange and aggressive waiter, took the menu while we were choosing our meal, insult gay people and threat our friend (girl) with animal sounds.
But the food was not so bad but i couldn’t finish because of his threats. So disappointed...

Most Disgusting, uncourteous and ruthless staff in Amsterdam. Doesn’t even deserve 1 rating. Pathetic behaviour with the travellers of other countries. Disgusting food and they don’t even give plates to eat. They should jus close their shop.. unworthy plz don’t go there

The mushroom starter was pretty basic. Pizza bread and pasta dishes were pretty good although completely lacked seasoning. The place could have a nice feel to it with decent staff as it's cosy and welcoming. Unfortunately not the case. The guy was plain rude and the lady just didn't have alot to say for herself.
