    The staff is so welcoming and kind. The food is fantastic. We’ve been in Amsterdam for 3 days and ate there twice!!! Highly recommend the tagliatelle which is finished off in a rind of parmigiana, the gnocchi, caprese salad, house rose and montepulchino wines.

    A very nice restaurant with true italians. Therefore delicious italian pasta at reasonable prices. I would really recommand it in this city where, more you're in the center, more the food is expensive without any quality behind it.

    Me and my girlfriend made a reservation to the restaurant on The Fork app, as they were offering 50% off food. When we got there, the place was very busy, but there was the table we booked. I made sure to ask one of the servers how the deal worked, as it was the first time I booked a table on the platform. As I got his confirmation that it was 50% off anything on the menu, we sat down. We waited about 15 minutes for the menu to finally arrive (bad). We ordered a starter to share and a pizza each. 25 minutes after the order, another person came and told us that to get the discount we had to order a 3 course menu each, which is something they never told me and isn’t stated on the reservation page. (OUTRAGINGLY BAD!) We ended up paying full price for the food, which came over ONE HOUR after we first sat down. The food was good and not too pricey, but the arrogance they treated us, overall made it a truly terrible experience never to repeat again.

    Foor was amazingly delicious and authentic. Service was quicker than any other Italian restaurant I have been before at. Waiter/waitress are very helpful and they give advice about the food. I recommend this place to everyone.

    Very tasty food! The time between entrée and main dish was quite extended, so if you're short on time be sure to mention it beforehand because after we did mention it, the time between main course and dessert shortened quite a lot! Pleasant experience in all and friendly service :)

    Unfriendly owner.. we reserved with 50% off, apparently only valid when ordering a 3 course menu. We found out when we got the bill. Not clearly mentioned and not mentioned in the terms and conditions in the app. We alerted the owner who couldn't care less and was simply rude. Food was okay but will never come back and will not recommend.

    The food was good, but we came with the 50% and they told us we had to order 3 courses each to apply us the discount. This condition was not written anywhere when booking so we consider it’s really unfair.

    Been here more often, surely will come around again. This restaurant delivers good quality dishes, though not all of them are the chefs' specialty. Well, nobody's perfect.

    The pizza was of high quality, but realy small, so it's rather pricy. Also the knifes were so blunt that eating that pizza was a real challenge.

    If u want to feel like in Italy u have to go there. I think is one of the best places where I had Italian food not in Italy. Everything from pizza, pasta to main courses and desserts. The food is prepared with passion and u can taste it. The service is also on the highest level and the waitress the one to steal your heart!

    From the service to the food, everything in Il Primo is amazing. If you’re looking for a nice place to eat in the 9 streets, this is the place.

    Indigenous Italians with Italian temperament and especially eye for true hospitality and service. All this alongside original Italian food and pace. Having dinner at Il Primo was a pleasure and will definitely come back!

    Food was nice but unfortunately the service was terrible. We were a party of 8 that had pre-booked. We had to repeatedly ask for one of the drinks we had ordered which eventually came after about 5 attempts of asking. They ran out of one of the starters so 3 of the party had to reorder. Not all of the starters arrived at the same time and then they tried to serve the mains whilst some of us were still eating the very late starters. Male waiter also told off one of the female waiters at the table for something that wasn't her fault - not very professional. To top it off they tried to charge us for a drink we hadn't ordered. It was a busy Friday night and I don't think they could cope with the amount of people in the restaurant.

    Sense was by far amazing restaurant. Food was out of this world. If you go make sure to get a tasting option they had them from 3 up to six and every meal is art incredible looking and tasting. Staff very nice and really know what there doing. And they had a traine called Danny and he was great couldn't be better so really hope he gets the job. 100% will be back.

    We had a lovely meal at Il Primo- the food was excellent, fresh ingredients and well seasoned, only criticism was a lack of vegetables alongside. Great service and atmosphere.
