We were four of us and my son had invited us to have dinner here. It is indeed a very charming place, an old "bruin café". In the center of Amsterdam. It was crowded and the tables stood very close to each other. However the atmosphere was good. It is an Italian restaurant and they had several interesting dishes but... More

Such a beautiful restaurant! Small but simply charming. Great service and the food was delicious. The area around it is also very cool so great to wander around. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone going to Amsterdam.

Firstly this restaurant is gorgeous - it is in a beautiful old building and is so lovely and cosy inside. The evening started well when the lovely hostess allowed us to try each of the 3 wines by the glass - all of which I would have had. I then had an amazing pasta with Gorgonzola and walnuts as a...

Such a lovely historical house, this alone is already a reason to visit this place. However we came for the authentic real Italian food, as we love Italian cuisine! We started with a primi, being the pasta with gorgonzola (pretty heavy due to the cheese, if you are a light eater just stick to one dish). As a secondi, I... More

I consider it extremely fortuitous that my father located this restaurant in the Jordaan district of Amsterdam. This establishment offered authentic Italian cuisine in a cosy and attractive setting. The restaurant was very popular and it is certainly advisable to book ahead. The proprietors were very friendly and considerate, providing an excellent service and interesting conversation. I selected the mushroom... More

We had a nice dinner with a group of colleagues. I had the ravioli, which was simple, but very fresh and surprisingly good

We came on the recommendation of our hosts and weren't sorry. Between the two of us we are a daily ravioli special and a veal special and we both felt they were above average for very good prices. When the food arrived the portions appeared small, but as we ate we realized the shape of the dishes created that illusion.... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
