It felt a bit like being in Italy more than in Amsterdam! We've walked by this place many times, but it always seemed dead, but once we took the plunge and entered, we realized there is a bar area upfront and the restaurant sits in...More

We visited the bar of Cinema Paradiso. It is a nice little place, with the simple but interesting decoration, tasty cocktails and a kind and friendly waiter. I think it's adorable!

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
