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

Of je nou zin hebt in een aperitief met wat kleins te eten of een volledige Italiaanse maaltijd, bij Primi Cucina & Bar zit je goed. Eigenaren Valerio en Matteo ontvangen je met open armen in hun gezellige en knusse zaak. De mannen komen zelf uit Sicilië, maar op hun kaart staan verschillende Italiaanse lekkernijen.

Kijk niet gek op als je hier pas na uren lekker hangen weer op huis aan gaat, de mannen hebben er een talent voor om het hun gasten naar de zin te maken en ze laten je pas weer weggaan als je een topavond hebt gehad. En dat is eerlijk gezegd niet zo moeilijk bij dit geweldige Italiaanse pareltje.

    Very good food, friendly staff. Do make a reservation, as the place is quite small so it fills up fast.

    Best Italian restaurant in Amsterdam. The owners are the most welcoming people and they will make you feel at home. The food is typical from the south of italy, and as Italian, I have to say it is the most authentic in the city. Quality of the ingredients is top notch, you won’t be disappointed. Try the parmigiana, arancini and cuttlefish ragù pasta, it will feel like being in Sicily! ❤️

    Our favorite restaurant! Very kind people running it and the food is delicious as well. A good balance of classics and (at least for me) new combinations. Keep up the good work and see you soon!
