A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

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.

    Enjoyed the cinema theme Italian restaurant. The food was excellent. Started with Bruschetta bread with mozzarella & tomatoes. Main course of ravioli with fillet steak beautifully presented & tasted sumptuous. Enjoyed watching classic 1964 Sophia Loren Italian movie with a glass of Toscan wine

    Food was ok and restaurant looks very nice when you enter. But the service is very distant and a bit arrogant even. Never understand why to be a restaurant waiter and have the the attitude you only like customers for handing out the check.

    Nice food, good wine, nice location and friendly staff. Apparently this place is mostly visited by locals, so a good way to feel the real Amsterdam vibe.

    Very good place, nice decor (but not for everyone's taste) - excellent dishes - everything tasted really good and the friendly Italian service was a nice touch for the fantastic evening we had. The only downside - we arrive on a Wednesday night in January and the place was almost empty. We did not care cause we arrived with friends and we had a lot of catching up to do... but I can imagine that if I came with my partner, the fact that there were hardly any people would feel strange. All together an excellent choice for a decent price in the Jordan! Well done. we will be back

    Been here with a group of colleagues. Wow.. what a place from the entrance to the dining room. The spectacular wall painting is a true eye catcher. We chose for a menu and we've been spoiled with delight. Nice wine's good food and nice ambiance. Time flew by! Would come back for sure!

About the restaurant

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!
