Selected by Insider

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

Wauw, ik weet niet of je ergens anders een mooier uitzicht over het Rokin hebt dan bij Incanto. Het Italiaans restaurant zit verborgen op de eerste etage van het prachtige pand boven Van Amstel Diamond. De mysterieuze trap leidt je naar het sfeervolle en karakteristieke restaurant. Het keukenteam bestaat uit alleen maar Italianen (van Napels tot aan de Dolomieten) en bereid onder leiding van chef Michele Mascolo de Italiaanse gerechten met enorm veel passie en liefde. Voor een verse pasta met huisgemaakte ragout zit je hier goed, maar ook voor super malse kalfstong met bagna cauda ben je bij Incanto aan het juiste adres. Chef de patisserie Giovanni Miele bakt iedere dag zo’n drie verschillende soorten broden en is een ster in het maken van killer desserts die niet alleen mooi voor het oog zijn, maar ook fijn zijn om op te lepelen.

Insider tip
Tip van bySam: Probeer de kalfstong. Hij is krokant van buiten en supermals van binnen. Echt een genot!

    despite the good score of the restaurant it was a disappointing experience. Very touristic restaurant, we did not see any view, they needed to get us out of the door as quickly as possible. Unpleasant waiters and the quality of the food was disappointing on top the portions were very small. We will defiantly not return there.

    Attentive service and excellent food in the most central setting one can possibly wish for in Amsterdam, yet set quietly above the hustle and buzz of the city one floor below. Will definitely return.

    Nice location, good food, professional service. Prices maybe a little bit too high. If you accept that you will have a lovely dinner here.

    When we arrived for lunch yesterday there was no one that welcomed us. The cleaner told us to wait for the waiter. We stood there for 5 minutes. To be honest, if you have a restaurant with these prices that's unacceptable. The waiter wasn't really welcoming and open - not smiling. The food was absolutely great, but the service (to me) is also what you pay for. The service wasn't bad, but definitely not friendly, warm and welcoming either.

    Place was lovely with beautiful light and views in the evening sun, service was very Italian but excellent, the food was a bit of a let down, tuna tartare was tasteless and lobster gnocchi had very little lobster.

    Lovely meal with very friendly staff, brilliant with gluten free for me. Meal full of flavour complimented by well selected wines.

    I chose this restaurant because of the good rating together with the location but most of all because they make pasta cacio e Pepe , one of my favorite dish . The quality of this dish was even better than my expectations! Nicely presented as well , and good service .

    This is a restaurant that creates excellence in the kitchen, and can pair a great bottle of wine with it. A climb up a set of stairs, but it is well worth the effort. Linen tablecloths, flatware by Villeroy & Boch are clues to what’s to arrive on a plate. I would recommend to my family and friends.
