I know I am not alone when I say Italian food is an all time favourite and I am happy to report there are many places in Amsterdam that do this cuisine a great justice.
Check out our list of Best Italian Restaurants in Amsterdam and grab a pizza food for yourself…
Pasta Bar, CentrumPrice: €-€
Pasta Bar is in a great location, just a few minutes walk from Amsterdam Centraal and also is very reasonably priced! The menu isn’t too extensive but it’s ideal if you’re looking for some fresh but fast food. It’s usually quite busy but you never have to wait long for a table – and they say that’s a good sign right? Their Margherita pizzas start at just €4.95

Ristorante Due Napoletani, De PijpPrice: €€-€€€
They have a Parmesan wheel.
Need I say any more? Ok, if you need any more than that they are rated 4.5*s on Tripadvisor.

Spaghetteria Pastabar, throughout AmsterdamPrice: €€
Spaghetteria say that “in the evening our Italian chefs prepare the daily fresh pasta is six different dishes on the daily changing menu”. It’s a super light but cosy and friendly atmosphere in a restaurant with really tasty pasta dishes.
New York Pizza, fast food – throughout AmsterdamPrice: €
Ok, it’s Dutch owned, it’s got ‘New York’ in the name – it’s a few steps away from authentic Italian BUT it’s pizza and it’s cheap, fast and convenient so I couldn’t not have it on the list. Most importantly, it’s tasty too. I recommend asking them to drizzle their garlic oil on your pizza too!

Italia Oggi, CentrumPrice: €-€€
Super close to The Red Light District (De Wallen), Italia Oggi is rated 4.5*s on Tripadvisor and serves up antipasti, pasta, meat and fish! I’s often very busy which is worth bearing that in mind.

Piadina Bar, Oude PijpPrice: €
Located next to The Heineken Experience, Piadina Bar serves the tastiest Piadinas and the staff are super friendlty too. Never tried one? Piadina Bar describe them as “a flatbread, folded and filled with a variety of typical Italian products, such as Prosciutto, Mozzarella di Bufala or Parmigiano Reggiano.
