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 to rip off tourists who only eat there once. Avoid it!

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 it, they happily obliged. My boyfriend had the carbonara and said it rivaled the dish in Italy that made him fall in love with carbonara in the first place. We sat outside on a perfect tiny alley which was a nice setting/mood. Wait staff was friendly and I would highly recommend for anyone looking for great Italian food!

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. Well worth a visit.
