Restaurant Toscanini is, quite simply, an institution. The passionate chefs have been serving up authentic, Italian fare for more than 25 years and have been celebrated by almost every restaurant reviewer and have even published their own, well received book to commemorate their silver jubilee. Believing strongly in the fact that italian food should be pure, honest and simple, Toscanini succeeds in putting these beliefs into practise, serving exceptional dishes that are full of flavour.

Slow Food and the freshest home made pasta

Not only does Restaurant Toscanini support the Slow Food movement and use ingredients from certified small scale, artisanal producers, they of course use organic vegetables from local suppliers, fresh, daily caught fish and organic meat. They also make all of their pasta and bread fresh on the premises. It is their attention to quality, to making things fresh on their premises and the care and passion that they have for pure, honest, flavoursome food that makes this one of the best Italian restaurants in Amsterdam.

Restaurant Toscanini is not a run of the mill Italian restaurant, and as such they do not serve pizza. But they do serve the most deliciously prepared Italian cuisine in a beautiful and relaxed setting. Right in the Jordaan, the non-fussy interior is welcoming and the service is friendly and attentive. They offer a fantastic wine menu of exclusively Italian wines that further reinforce their approach to a pure, wholesome and authentic dining experience. This is Italian dining as it should be. Trust us, you will not be disappointed at Restaurant Toscanini.
