From the moment we walked into the restaurant it just oozed warmth and atmosphere.The service was excellent, the waitress very funny and the food was outstanding.I had a fabulous roast leg of lamb dish, my wife an exquisite fresh salmon with miso and fine beans. Take time to find this little gem

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.

Great restaurant with good options for carnivores and vegetarians. Nice ambiance with great service by professional waiters. Food is delicious, and if you have a fave dish not on the menu, don't hesitate to ask. Wine menu is also good, and desserts heavenly!

We happened into Vasso on our last night in Amsterdam or we would have returned every night! Delightful ambiance, delicious food, great service. Our server was from Torino and the chef that night was from Rome. When my husband commented that his favorite Roman dish was not on the menu, they offered to make it for him. He accepted and...

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.
