The menu changes regularly, so a visit is always a surprise. All the food is Italian (Tuscan) and tastes amazing. There are not many different choices on the menu (probably like 5 starters, first and second), but we think this is the kind of restaurant...More

The dinner was nice and atmosphere is great. Staff is very nice and friendly except for a rude old man walking by the tables. We ve been forced to pay cash. Crazy... Do they want to evade taxes???

We literally walked in when the restaurant opened at lunchtime so had to wait 20mins to really get started but the staff were great and very helpful. The important bit..... THE FOOD...... perfect italian home cooked food highly recommend it.

Traditional italian restaurant with a atmosphere to match. Service was amazing; they are so passionate about the food, I loved how our waiter read out the entire menu in detail to us. Food itself and the wine was top notch. Worth every cent.

We came and had two pastas. I had the mushroom raviolini. My wife had the pasta with a tomato sauce. The raviolini was pretty good. I expected more pronounced flavor and would have preferred a larger portion, but it was enjoyable. The pasta with tomato...More

Do not expect to choose pizza or pasta from a menu. There is daily fixed menu of 3-5 starters, primi and secondi. Mostly NOT mainstream italian food. Visited by tourists, served by italians, enjoy!

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Il Pacioccone is something totally new in Amsterdam: the Italian tradition of food, the quality of products and the experience. Everything comes from Italy, everything is genuine, everything is original and our Chef is an Italiano vero!
