This is by far the best Italian restaurant I’ve been to outside Italy. The staff are all Italians and they know their menu inside out.
They were very helpful and suggesting us what to order, and all their recommendations were great. We got the homemade tagliatelle with porcini, tuna steak, and two beef fillets, one with green pepper sauce and one with porcini sauce.
The food arrived extremely fast, which was amazing. Everything was so delicious that we barely spoke between each other. We also got a bottle of Brunello de Montalcino, which was also recommended by one of the waiters.
Don’t hesitate to ask for their desert menu, as well. They have quite a few different desserts, but we went for the tiramisu, panacotta, and tartufo. Again, the dessert was also delicious.
It was the best dinner we had in Amsterdam by far, and I would definitely go back when I have the chance.

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!
