Selected by Insider

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

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.

Insider tip
Het team werkt volgens 3 basiswaarden: Professionaliteit, Italiaanse passie en Kwalitatieve Italiaanse producten. Probeer zo veel mogelijk van die verschillende producten te proberen - Antipasto misto alla PepeNero is dus sowieso een goed idee. Of laat je door Daniele verrassen met de beste Italiaanse kwaliteit die ze je te bieden hebben.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
