We've visited this pizzeria several times now and would go every week if not for our budget. The pizzas are absolutely worth every cent you spend on them. The place is rather small, so make sure you have a reservation, it will be full! Both the regular menu and the specials are worth checking out. Last time we went they had a lovely asparagus and prosciutto combination, all fresh and imported from Italy. The staff members are actual Italians and you can bring your Italian friends and relatives here without getting an earful ;). The dough is the exact right recipe and the wood fired oven make the whole experience perfect. You might just forget you are actually still in Amsterdam for a moment. All in all; good service, nice ambiance and most importantly, great food! I'd definitely recommend this place!

The pizzas here are DELICIOUS. 4 guys were working 2 on floor and 2 in kitchen and when I sat working I mean it. They were flat out as the place was full and yet they still had time for a friendly chat and provided great service. I would strongly recommend eating here. Well worth whatever small wait you may have if you're cheeky like us and walk in without a booking! I had the diavola pizza and it was delicious!!

Great atmosphere, very friendly service, the pizza was tasty, but that's the only 'main course' available here so don't expect pastas or any other options as a main. There is a selection of very tasty looking starters though. Price was a bit steep for what it was...

We arrived here late on a Tues evening (about 9pm) with our two children after visiting Anne Frank's house, and needed a quick supper. I have since read another review that says children are not permitted after 7pm but we were welcomed with no questions (our children are 11 and 9 so maybe older children are OK). The restaurant was busy but not full and we ordered three pizzas to share between four. The order was taken quickly and because we sat near the back of the restaurant we got to watch the chefs make our pizzas and then cook them in the huge wood fired oven. The pizzas were absolutely delicious and just the right amount for the four of us. Service was attentive without being overpowering. Highly recommended, would definitely go back.

You won't find a more Italian pizzeria in Amsterdam. Simple but cosy restaurant with a nice open kitchen so you can actually see your pizza going in the wood oven. The Italian staff speaks Dutch and English and was very friendly. There is no overdo of choices; it's just some antipasti and some 15 different pizza's topped with authentic ingredients. The pizza's were good and so was the coffee (espresso)! I found it overall just slightly expensive.
