This place is not as good as the rating lets you believe. Food was ok, but the service was bad. The waiter was so annoyed by having to work. Wouldn't go back.

Owner didn't care when we told him the food was not good. All the seafood was tasteless (clearly frozen not fresh) and pasta sauces were tasteless or sour. 15 years ago this was a fabulous special restaurant but the current owner appears to just want...More

A nice little Italian restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere. Is located in a side alley that separates from the Kalverstaat street. We ate pasta and a dish of salmon that were delicious. They do not serve pizzas.

I know you don’t necessarily go to Amsterdam seeking out Italian food but when you’re as picky a eater as I am Italian is always a safe bet. Vasso did not disappoint. I had gnocchi and asked that they put a spicy red sauce on...More

Glad we stumbled across this restaurant. Cosy Italian, fresh food and friendly staff. The owner was a bit surly initially but we couldn’t fault the service. Best sea bass I’ve ever had, fresh and moist with perfectly crispy skin. Around €50 a head including wine....More

There are plentiful of Italian restaurants everywhere and mosty they offer the same or nearly the same - standard food consisting of pasta, pizza, some wine and decoration that pretends to be Italian trattoria. Predictable, yet boring. Vasso, however is nothing like that. Everything here...More

For a supposedly traditional Italian long standing Restaurant you'd think cooking pasta would be simple, however uncooked pasta is what I got. And to top that off it was expensive and the rude waitress did not help our disappointing experience. I think we should have...More

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
