Bij Italiaans restaurant Cinema Paradiso ga je niet een hapje eten, nee je gaat hier uit eten. De lange gang leidt je naar het grote aquarium waarachter de dinerzaal zich bevindt. Wanneer je je eenmaal aan één van de mooi met wit linnen gedekte tafels hebt geïnstalleerd zorgt het team van Italiaanse obers ervoor dat je niets tekort komt. Op het menu staan echte Italiaanse klassiekers en chef Emilio laat zelfs ingrediënten uit Italië overvliegen om ervoor te zorgen dat wanneer je van zijn gerechten eet je je even in het land van la dolce vita waant. Cinema Paradiso bestaat al meer dan tien jaar en sinds vijf jaar wordt het bekende restaurant gerund door Gianni Gervasio en zijn zoon Salvatore. De favoriete gerechten van Salvatore? De linguine met verse kreeft (ze zwemmen in een vistank achterin de zaak) en de panzarotti met truffel. Sowieso staan er verschillende huisgemaakte pasta’s op de kaart, dus zeker eens eentje proberen.

Beautifully attentive service. Catering to dietary needs and they even made a pizza especially for my daughter and found me a good discount deal on my bill because I hadn’t realised it was no longer a pizza restaurant and the new menu would have been a bit out of budget for me. They fulfilled my request to have a sparkler in my daughters dessert because I was celebrating with her that she reached her goal with school results. The stood near the table to be part of the moment which felt so lovely and they made her feel really special. Thankyou so much! Louise
The best Italian restaurant in town, by far. No pizza parlor, but the chef's choice. Service friendly and welcoming. Just a bit noisy as the kitchen is basically next to you.
Food was real nice, super friendly service. And also the scropino's were ????????
The food & service was 10/10! I never leave reviews, but I was impressed about the atmosphere, amazing hospitality and yummy food! They allowed my friend to charge her phone, the 4 of us got free sgroppino (Italian sorbetto cocktail) and we even got 30% discount! We ordered 3 starters, 4 mains which also included lobster, 2 dessert and drinks..total 35€ including tips! It was my first time, but definitely not my last time at Cinema Paradiso!
Really delicious food in a cosy atmosphere
It was perfect! It’s a restaurant for every type of dinner with friends, with family or a business dinner. It’s a nice atmosphere and the staff makes everything to make your experience perfect. I come back for sure!!
Assolutamente da provare!
My girlfriend and I had dinner at Cinema Paradiso for her birthday. The place was nicely decorated and the mood was pleasantly informal given the high quality of the food. In addition, the service was excellent and the wine was good (note that we are by no means wine experts ;) ). The pricing is in accordance with the high quality (i.e. more expensive than the average restaurant). All in all it was an enjoyable evening with good food.
I spend a weekend in Amsterdam, from 3 days I spend 2 eating at cinema paradiso, and it was fabulous. For sure I come back if I am in Amsterdam! Finally a really good modern but also authentic Italian restaurant!!! Thank you
I’ve never enjoyed more Italian food then here! It was a nice atmosphere with all the people inside but still you get a lot of attention from the waiters! Really big menu and sure also something for everyone in the menu! And also the recommended wine Gavi di Gavi was lovely! I have to come back for sure and try the other stuff from the menu!
Delicious food and very friendly service
I freshly moved to amsterdam and one thing is sure with cinema paradiso i found my favourite italian restaurant!!
We had a great time. Our waiter, Salvatorio was super nice, funny and patient. It was a bit loud, as there was a large group (about 40 people) and then with the music, it was a bit intense. I suggest to not have music on, when a large, lively group is dining as well. Other than that, great experience. Thanks CP!
Very nice Italian restaurant good food very kind staff and one of the best Italian food I eat in Amsterdam see you soon again, greetings to Salvatore thanks for taking good care of us.
Our first waiter didn’t know anything about anything. Was a real twilight zone experience. Food was OK but far from amazing. Wine list is a joke.
Interesting atmosphere - takes you back to the sixties Italian movies! Very friendly and attentive staff. The tuna carpaccio was tasty but the portion could have been a bit more generous. The tomato sauce of the seafood dish was slightly overpowering. The Tartuffo was a little bland.
Great food, lovely staff.
Great experience & food!
What can I say, great atmosphere good service, helpfull staff and of course good Italian food and wine Excellent value for money

Taste, see and breath Italy
In the centre of the lively Jordaan is Cinema Paradiso an excellent choice for any party. Walking past the enormous aquarium filled with lobsters you'll enter the classic Italian space where a chandelier swings over your head. Pizza and pasta without limits and perfectly prepared by the chef. Also notice the projection screen with the occasional maffia film showing!
