    The Bosboom Tussaintstraat is beautiful in the summer. So try to get a table outside. The Italian has one dish you need to order: gnocchi with truffle. Nough said..

    Everything was delicious but if you don't need gluten free crust get the regular crust - gluten free doesn't go into the wood oven!

    I really liked their menu - it had a few extraordinary and really good options! Other than that the food is nice, proper service, casual atmosphere.

    Order the antipasti, followed by linguine vongole or gnocchi w/ truffle! Their house wine is good too. They have gluten free woodoven pizza. Ain't that good news! http://www.kitchenscript.net

    We tried a couple different pizzas, all were quite tasty yet different from what I’m used to (in a positive sense).

    Nice place ;) pizza & pasta with tomato sauce was fine, but my ravioli with mushrooms and tartufs was... with no tartufes:( I know its not Rome, but expected just a little bit more. Still tasty;))

    Stumbled across this gem. Shrimp ravioli special advertiser was wonderful. The gnocchi is outstanding.

    "Their wood-oven pies are generously garnished with the most flavourful mozzarella, pecorino, or mascarpone, adorned with perfectly roasted vegetables and cold cuts." Read more

    Excellent pizza - the De Italiaan with black truffles is well worth €18 of anyone's money. Friendly staff, small but good regional Italian wine list. Everything a neighborhood restaurant should be.

    Pizza was great: fresh ingredients, thincrust. Around 16€ for a good pizza but totally worth it

    A lot of meat options, only a few vegetarian options. Friendly service and nice use of colors inside.

    It's a quaint place but the food is really rather average. My "taleggio" ravioli tasted mostly like ricotta & far better pizza can be had elsewhere in Amsterdam.

    Meatballs and bruschetta were great, but the gnocchi was weird and mushy and tasted like baby food. Left hungry.

    There are much better Italian pizza places in town than this, passable but disappointing. It takes much more than a wood fire oven to produce a good pizza.
