The original tiles from the butchers still adorn the walls, which gives the interior a special, authentic atmosphere. “We kept everything in the old style,” says manager Fernant Bos. The restaurant opened its doors in 1978. It is located in the Oud-Zuid (old south) area, just behind the Concertgebouw concert hall and very close to the Museumplein with the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum and the Stedelijk Museum. The neighbourhood is one the most beautiful and wealthiest parts of Amsterdam, with many famous people living here. On the extensive menu you can find wellknown pastas, pizzas and other typical Italian dishes.
