The restaurant Scottadito is ideally located next to the Vondelpark on the Amstelveenseweg. Established in 2010 by an Italian family, the restaurant distinguishes itself with its tasty homemade cuisine and welcomes lovers of simple yet tasty food from Monday to Saturday from 3pm onwards.
What sets Scottadito apart is the freshness and healthy products used in its traditional Italian cuisine. Specially selecting the ingredients that go into their dishes is an art in itself: “We give a lot of importance to creating the best taste in our food. For this reason, we always import our truffles, flour, rice, sausages, mozzarella and wine from Italy. Everything else comes from the select group of certified local distributors we work with,” says restaurant manager Rozeta Karaj. With the pasta, pizza, lasagna and desserts being homemade by their chef, it is no wonder that their customers keep coming back for more.
“We have quite a lot of regular clients – mostly for the food of course, but also for the effort we put into creating a welcoming and warm atmosphere,” explains Karaj. Seating up to 35 people, guests can expect an explosion of flavours in the traditional Italian recipes on their plate. The truffle risotto is a house specialty and a popular choice for dinner occasions amongst friends or family. What could be a better finish than the homemade tiramisu or the panna cotta?
Uncompromising on the quality of the food and the service they provide, the team at Scottadito look forward to welcoming you at their cosy location. All to be enjoyed with a backdrop of classic Italian tunes.
