Amazing food !! They have vegetarian and pescatarian options !! Very good traditional Italian food and good service. We ordered with some changes from the original menu and they had no problem doing the food they way we wanted. Ask for extra Parmesan cheese real Italian cheese !!

I went here with two friends and we enjoyed an excellent night filled with exquisite food, vibrant atmosphere and wonderful staff. Even though this place lends itself perfectly for a romantic dinner, me and my friends went there to have a nice Italian dinner to catch up. Having never been here before this was quite the experience. We were greeted... More

After a busy week in Amsterdam I wanted to treat myself to a good meal. I forget how I found restaurant incanto but I am glad I did. I walk up to the 2nd floor dining room and was greeted by the host and given a table by the window overlooking the canal. It was nice to above street level... More

We had a very pleasant dinner at a table facing the Munt tower, went through the actual kitchen to get to our table but it was a nice twist! The filletto was cooked exactly right, nicely seared but almost buttery in the middle, delicious flavor. Nice wine, we also received a very tasty appetiser, smoked eel with gratin potatoes, packed...

Great service, good wine list, perfect stop for lunch. We enjoyed everything except for the scallop ravioli which tasted much fishier than scallops should. Do be careful if you indulge in some wine, there are some steep stairs to/from the restaurant.

Wine selection menu is great. Regarding the food, they do not have variety choises but they are very successful about what are they serving. We ordered risotto, octopus as starters which were very nice and beef and lamp as a main dish. They were all great with a nice presentation. If you're lucky enough, you can also enjoy a canal...

This place is remarkable for its almost invisibility. Hidden on the first floor with an unassuming entrance, you are knocked of your feet when entering the restaurant. On the corner of the Muntplein, views almost to all sides through wide, low windows, views strechting over the Rokin all the way to the Dam, over the Flower Market and the Munttower.... More
