Just dined at Pastini and loved everything about it. The wines were unusual and excellent, pear salad delicious and well-balanced, gnocchi with vegetables was the most creative dish, delicious and nicely presented. Wish we had had room for dessert!

Booked one of the last tables on the evening. The food was really excellent. A marvellous lamb pasta and a glass of wine. Followed by good tiramisu. Lovely views over the canal in was a great evening.

Gorgeous little restaurant with some of the most delicious Italian food I have tasted. Certainly not a run of the mill Italian Restaurant. Beautifully crafted dishes give a new angle on Italian cuisine. The service is friendly and welcoming and we are going back soon.

Really quaint Italian restaurant in central Amsterdam. Food was superb! Would recommend this place but be sure to make a reservation as it is small and can get quite busy.

We went to this restaurant because one of us had visited before three years earlier and wanted to see if it was still as good. It was. The foie gras was delicious; we had lamb ragout and duck for mains and rhubarb with the pate...More

At first glance the menu looks a little limited, but there is an understated elegance to the simplicity of both the food and the environment. This was easily the best dining experience we had during a long weekend in Amsterdam. Thank you for squeezing us...More
