Vraag een Italiaan in Nederland waar je hier lekker Italiaans kunt eten en het zou goed kunnen dat het antwoord niet zo eenvoudig over de lippen komt. Italianen zijn immers gepassioneerd over eten en nemen niet gauw genoegen met half werk. Zo ook Marco Spina, dat samen met compagnon Daniele Lauritano de leiding heeft over Risto Enoteca Pepenero. Met een grotendeels Italiaanse garde koken ze niet ‘authentiek’, maar gewoon ECHT Italiaans. Geen wonder dat Marco en Daniele door de jaren heen behoorlijk wat gasten van stand hebben ontvangen: Mick Jagger, Marco Borsato en zo’n beetje de gehele Ajax-selectie gingen je voor.

PepeNero is the ultimate Italian restaurant in the Netherlands. Great ambiance and a classic menu. If you’re a millennial hipster looking for novelty this restaurant might not be perfect for you, but everybody that truly loves Italian cuisine owes it to themselves to pay them a visit.

Gorgeous food, amazing service. Strongly suggested
Great staff and amazing risotto collection
The food was excellent. Between 4 of us we had a mix of most of the antipasti for starters and they were very good quality - the ingredients were superb, so he overall effect was great. For mains we covered pesce, carne and pasta and all were superb, often with a slight twist in what was expected (the pesto, for example, was less punchy than usual, more subtle and more enjoyable for that). The service was a bit slow - it took about 40 minutes from ordering to receiving the first course - but that did not detract from the meal. A lovely meal, great quality and well cooked. I hope to come back some day.
Excellent food and service. It is essential to make a reservation before.
Cozy restaurant with beautiful interior and warm lighting. Food was great.
As always amazing food, very good service and beautiful pairing wine. We’ve had the mixed anti pasti which was great, then the owner came to me to tell me he had lamb rack fresh delivers apart from the menu and that was amazing. Pasta vongole was amazing as well as my Italian friend told me. Thumbs up!
Excellent meal with very nice service
Really delicious food. Best Italian restaurant in Amsterdam. We went to Italy in the summer and the food in Risto Enoteca PepeNero is even better. The staff is really friendly, we only come twice a year (because we have to save money as students to go out for dinner) and they still remember us. They even gave us advice to reheat the food (I can never finish my plate but still order too much because everything is good). I would recommend the Antipasto misto alla PepeNero (per 2 personen) as appetizer because you can taste all the appetizers at once and then you will know how good they are. Plus the flambé spaghetti is amazing to eat and watch. All the desserts are good, but the Sgroppino is the best we ever had. So if you like Sgroppino then order here.
Delicious food and great wines again and not to forget the great service! Grazie mille! Very authentic and beautiful products. Recommend it to everyone!
Outstanding restaurant, certainly the best Italian restaurant in Amsterdam by far!
Great quality and atmosphere, for food, personnel and dishes. Great value and highly recommended
Wonderful experience, the food excellent the service is personal. The prices are very reasonable. My wife had the four course meal and I had steak with real truffles. All the dishes were super delicious, will definitely go back. Southern Italian cooking rules! :-)
My first time today and honestly, I am already planing to visit this place very soon and also planing to arrange my birthday dinner with my family. Delicious food, warm atmosphere and amazing staff. Deffinately will be back again and recommend to friends and family.
Always a pleasure to eat at Risto Enoteca PepeNero! The atmosphere is gezellig, the service is exceptional and the food...oh, the food! This time I went with my traditional mix: melanzane alla parmigiana, spaghetti al parmigiano con pomodorini and sgroppino. The eggplant was coocked perfectly, the tomato perfectly seasoned and gooey cheese to top it of. The spaghetti brings the show: what can top pasta flambe in a large wheel of parmigiano? Maybe the sgroppino prepared at the table. Overall, as always, a great experience! Will come back for sure!
Great food and ambiance. Best Italian restaurant in Amsterdam. We had invited some friends to join us in our favourite Italian restaurant and they were very impressed ...., they were just back from a holiday in Puglia. And they found the Pepenero ‘experience’ fantastic.
Great food, authentic flavours, lovely service. Scroppino made at the table, lovely ravioli, clams were delicious. Gezellig atmosphere.
Eerste Oosterparkstraat 3, 1091, Amsterdam, Netherlands
In the Netherlands we love the sunny flavors of the Mediterranean. The welcoming culture and the sensational flavors of the Italian cuisine are one of the biggest favorites. Risto Enoteca Pepenero in Amsterdam has a great name despite of tough competition. Led by host Marco Spina and Chef Daniele Laurintano they know exactly how to present the culinary treasures of Italy. Their secret? Authentic family recipes and hard work.
