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!

I had the mozzarella and cherry tomatoes for a starter that was amazing. The waiter explained to me the tomatoes are boiled then skins removed. The chef then adds olive oil and herbs to them and cook at a low heat, the result is a slight sweetness that is unlike anything i have ever had before in a tomato.
For my main item I had the Gnocchi and Lobster which I enjoyed as well.
I highly recommend this restaurant great views from the many windows.

Great restaurant for a romantic dinner while on vacation in Amsterdam. First class service. Excellent selection of wines with equally excellent recommendations from the staff. Location is fantastic in the center of the city across from the flower market and the mint tower (Munttoren). Compliments to the chef and kitchen for delicious food with eye-catching presentation.

When planning our trip on friday evening, this was one of the few restaurants avaible for saturday evening in Amsterdam. The restaurant is hard to find being hidden behind a nondescript door and steep stairs, we were positively surprised by the quality of food. The wine cart was good as well. Only the service seemed to be a little slow sometimes (we got our wine refilled rather sluggish), but overall it was a positive experience.

Liked ambiance and friendliness of staff very much. Gnocchi, excellent; wine, very good indeed; desserts, excellent; lasagna, disappointing; prawn & quinoa, a little uninteresting; mozzarella & tomato, good; roast piglet, quite good, very fatty; salsify, good.

We enjoyed our experience and would come again. Thank you.

The service and food were simply excellent. Quality of ingredients clearly very high and the staff - unusually for Amsterdam - excellent at providing the exact right level of good service.

Our daughter lives in Amsterdam and we came over to visit and take her somewhere special for her birthday. We certainly managed that. Incanto is located with lovely views over the flower market, canal and bell tower. The restaurant is intimate and atmospheric. We were early for our table but were welcomed with open arms and the service was attentive, but not intrusive throughout. The food was delicious and beautifully presented especially the deserts when everyone at neighbouring tables stretched over to see what you had! My husband said that the tournados of beef just melted and I loved the mozzarella starter. A splendid, special evening, quite expensive, but worth it.

Food and service are top. Its a perfect place if you want different Italian dishes, chefs and waiters are genuine Italians, which makes us feel like we are in Italy with Amsterdam's canal views :) This time the restaurant hostess was a bit unease with the reservation regards the table , even though I made it clear on the reservation the type of the table chosen and we were early. After talks with another male host she granted our wish (a bit against her will seems like...) and from there on it was everything good! Oh and the lightening of the place could be a bit softer. Its a bit too bright if you want to have a romantic dinner...

I was slightly disappointed. Starter was under cooked (poached egg). Seated on the top floor with no ambiance compared to main restaurant. Had to go through the kitchen to the bathroom. Food was ok altogether but nothing compared to my expectations considering I heard such good reviews. Won't be recommending.

Staff were very welcoming and helpful, explaining dishes and offering advice on appropriate wines. Food was delicious - some unusual and effective food combinations but good variety with authentic Italian influence. Lovely friendly ambience. Also good value.
Overall, we had a fun & relaxed evening with tasty food without breaking the bank.

Everything was excellent except our sommelier did not listen to us when we explained which price range wine we are interested in and continued to suggest only the most expensive options.

The lunch is with a lot of light and windows to the street and channels. It makes the experience much better. Food is very well presented and the quality very good. We were 4 members and instead of going to menu, we decided to share a couple of starters and each one selected a different main course so we could see and feel different textures (we were all family to taking a bite from each other was acceptable). Wine can be serve on cup which is convenient. Dessert also very good. A little bit slow but good cooking takes time. You can to budget no less than 40€/person (a really minimum budget), ideally 60€/person.

Atmosphere was informal yet stylish. Staff were knowledgable, attentive and friendly. They made excellent wine recommendations. Food was delicious! We particularly enjoyed the black truffle risotto. The meal was a wonderful memory to add to our honeymoon. We look forward to visiting again (perhaps on our first anniversary)!

Solid performance. Food was good, I like the variety. The service was a bit off normal but still acceptable. It's a great place to people watch out the windows too. Enjoyable experience.
