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

In één van de schattigste steegje van de grachtengordel tref je Italiaans restaurant Pianeta Terra aan. Dit restaurant dat alweer zo’n 16 jaar in Amsterdam zit is gevestigd in een pand uit de 17e eeuw. Het karakteristieke gebouw fungeerde vroeger als paardenstal. Leuk om te weten: Waar nu de bar zit daar stonden vroeger de drinkbakken. De met wit linnen gedekte tafels zijn verdeeld over drie etages waardoor je in verschillend intieme hoekjes in alle rust je Italiaans maaltje kunt oppeuzelen. Bewuste eters zitten hier overigens goed. Los van het feit dat chef en eigenaar Fabio Antonini de meest kunstige borden uit zijn keuken tovert kookt hij ook met zijn hart. Zo kiest hij voor biologisch vlees, duurzame vis en kookt hij met groentes uit het seizoen. Hij fermenteert zelf ook veel groentes zodat hij ook buiten het seizoen gebruik kan maken van bepaald groen. Ook zijn ze aangesloten bij Slow Food dat zich afzet tegen de industriële productie van voedsel.

    Very friendly service. Charming man with impressive beard:). Wasn’t mad about the raw langoustine but everything else was top. Also the wine arrangement was excellent. Will be back.

    Excellent cuisine and a relaxed atmosphere made for a very pleasant evening. The mushroom and truffle risotto and the sea bass with fries carrots, heirloom carrots and fennel roasted with tumuric were the highlights of the evening. The wine pairings were lovely as well. Great experience!

    We went to this restaurant for my wife’s birthday. Great atmosphere, tasty food ( picked the 5 course menu with wine pairing) and great service (each dish is thoroughly explained to you and they added a candle as a small gesture to my wife’s dessert). Great find.

    Seriously good cooking which stays true to its classic Italian roots, but cleverly uses seasonal and local produce from the Netherlands. There is just enough innovation in the dishes, but not so much that they lose their soul. Wonderful wine list, and we were so happy that we had to option to have a wine pairing only with natural wines. Of course all this quality doesn't come cheap, but it's very fair value - and you will not leave hungry! The pace is fairly slow, but not crushingly so - and by Dutch standards it's positively brisk!

    Great experience! The food (and wine) was delicious and we felt very welcome and looked after throughout the evening. It is more expensive than the average restaurant but once you have tasted the food you know why. A lovely dinner.

    Great experience with our family. Excellent dishes, excellent wine pairing, good service. We're also great fans of the slow food movement and eat only organic food at home, so this was right up our alley. Will recommend this restaurant whole-heartedly and would love to return!
