We enjoyed our last meal
In Amsterdam in this small restaurant in the Jordaan. It was recommended to us by friends who had just dined here the previous week. We started with the vitello tonnato, really bistecca tonnato. Beautifully thin slices of beef with a delicious tuna sauce to add as you wish. Excellent. Next we had their Lasagnetta-an inventive riff on lasagne that was a beautiful tower of layered pasta, ragù, and a version of besciamella, plus a kiss of demiglace on the plate. A terrific combination of textures and flavors - bravo! For dolci we had their "not a tiramisu". Perfect ending for a memorable meal. The two waiters added to our evening, both helpful, charming, and moving with speed and grace to keep up with the hungry diners. We will return if we're back in Amsterdam.

My husband and I went to this restaurant as it seemed quiet with a small menu. We were not disapointed! We tried the Osso Bucco which was one of the best I had. It took some time to be served but this dish needs some time to be prepared ! House Tiramisu was also great: a coffee mascarpone served in a chocolate cup, original, tasty. Simply a great meal. Only bad point: door left open when its below 10 degrees outside...

Tiny little Italian gem of a little restaurant with a modern but cozy atmosphere, and incredibly affordable pricing. Feels like a "neighborhood" place, but with such creativity, quality, and precise execution, it's worth making your way here from anywhere in Amsterdam. This is a complete reinvention of what you think Italian food is; if you want lots of tomato sauce and parmesan cheese on your dinner, this is not the place for you! Our server was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate, about both the food AND the wine. Excellent wine by the glass menu with wines selected personally by the owner on his trips to Italy. One of the best chianti's I've ever had, and a very nice Valpolicella Ripasso with my main course. We were even treated to a little limoncello on the house to end our evening. Grazie mille Locanda!

A fantastic Italian restaurant with high quality food cooked with Italian skills.The staff is kind, Italian speaking and accurate about explaining the ingredients. It is probably the sole Italian restaurant worth enjoying in Amsterdam. Price is more than acceptable and affordable by everyone keen on having Italian food abroad.
