Beautiful ambience and interior design. Food is fine, but you expect more for what they charge. Service is fast but authenticity is missing.

There was such a hype about the place one gets into expectations. ambiance is very nice but the restaurant part smells so much food if you meet people afterwards they will ask you o were you at Cecconis? cocktails were weak, starter fried zucchini was soft and very oily, aubergine parmigiana was ok, pasta was not successful, pizza was delicious. three plus points are ambiance, pizza and prices

Since day one i'v always had a good feeling when I'm at Cecconi's! Great atmosphere, friendly service and good food. You just need to reserve to on time to have a regular table though cause those low seats and table aren't the most comfortable to have diner at like we sat once when we just walked in. Lucinda is a most friendly host, too bad she wasn't there last time.

The food was pretty much tasteless so we had to add a lot of salt ourselves to get it it to even taste something. My friend asked for any spicy sauces they had in the back because her food was so bland.
It was disappointing, especially as it was a birthday dinner.

After the dinner, we went to get our coats but then stopped to ask one of the waiters to take a photo of us by the piano. He took the photo and quickly walked off, almost throwing the phone back to me and said "I don't like it." - We have a sense of humour and it could be a funny joke, but this waiter was not joking.

Would not recommend and are now hesitating to visit any of the other Cecconi's in the world.

Yes, I would recommend.
Pizza is OK and prices should be lower for such offer. In Amsterdam for 18 euro you can get far better pizza.

But other dishes are great! Keep up the quality.
Especially the starters are super tasty. Very happy.

Good cosy spot to have some lunch or diner. This time we were seated near the windows instead at the part nearby the bar. The ober was so nervous and rushy, he even took our glasses of Prosecco while we didn't even finished it. Service wasnt good this time, but overal I like this cosy place to have diner/drinks.

Slechte ervaring: Op 31 oktober hadden we gereserveerd om 2,5 maand (!) later uiteten te gaan voor een speciale gelegenheid. We werden aan een lage tafel gezet in het lobby gedeelte, heel oncomfortabel. Toen we vroegen om een andere tafel zei de serveerster: de andere mensen aan de restaurantkant hebben eerder gereserveerd dan jullie. Heel onbeleefd en onvoorstelbaar. Vervolgens kregen we een normale tafel en een ongeduldige andere serveerster, die al drie keer in vijf minuten vroeg of we al wisten wat we wilden eten. Na de derde keer zei ze: weten jullie dat jullie 2 uur deze tafel krijgen? Dan moeten jullie weg. We waren met stomheid geslagen! De hele sfeer was er bij ons wel uit, en onze avond was eigenlijk verpest. En dit alles was ook nog in het Engels. Hier hadden we niet 2,5 maand op gewacht. Hele slechte service, niet aan te raden dus. We hadden hoge verwachtingen van deze plek, maar die zijn zeker bijgesteld. Erg jammer.

Beautiful restaurant with even beautiful staf however the food was mediocre,you would expect much more from an ambiance like this.It feels weird to “Dress up” for the occassion and then eat food you can eat in any mediocre Italian restaurant.

As a real foody I was really disappointed in the food.
Especially as there is a long waitinglist to book a table, my expectations were really high.
The place and the ambiance are really nice. But this is defenitly not the Italian food I am used to and will not come back for a diner.

The food is ok, but not outstanding or amazing. There are better Italian restaurants in Amsterdam. Toscanini beats every dish served. Cecconi's Amsterdam has a lovely setting, but the food is underwhelming to be honest.
I would say that having to wait for weeks before you can make a reservation is more to do with the limited amount of tables than because of the quality of the food.

Chaotic, inexperienced and poor service. Had a spaghetti with tomato sauce and the pasta was undercooked, I do want to eat my pasta al dente but this was to al dente! The sauce was made from reduced tinned tomatoes which is no problem if you add some flavor to it like a little salt and pepper and basil. As I am quite a good hobby cook myself and prefer to cook Italian (I cook and eat pasta nearly every day!!! I would like to invite the Chef to come over so I can teach him how to cook pasta an make a decent tomato sauce.

Bij binnenkomst was er nogal wat chaos. Onze tafel, en die van andere arriverende gasten, was nog niet gereed. We werden naar de bar gedirigeerd, die ook erg vol was. We kregen een prachtig glas prosecco en de gastdame kwam bij ons langs om te checken of alles ok was en dat onze tafel nog een kwartier zou duren. Dat was heel fijn. Bij het legen van ons glas, was onze tafel gereed. Uiteindelijk mooie tafel gekregen en fijne avond gehad. De prosecco was van het huis. Prima opgelost allemaal. Wat een mooi restaurant.

We have been to Cecconi's before in different locations so were excited to see what this new Amsterdam location would belike. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful, the interior is very well done. We had booked an table for the 1st sitting so we saw how the restaurant got busier as the evening went on. Our orders came out fast and the food tasted amazing, only towards the end (when it really started to fill up w people who had a late reservation) things started to become sloppy w/r to service. Many tables around us were waiting very long to get their orders, as well as many people waiting for over an hr (after their reservation time) to be seated. That didn't contribute to the atmosphere, which is truly a shame. We were lucky to be able to escape to the upstairs Soho House were we continued our evening very pleasantly.

I like to 'blame' the newness and inexperience of the restaurant for this and hope they get organized quickly so soon everyone can merely focus on the amazing quality food, drinks and amazing surroundings :).

To be honest I expected more than the vibrant bar scene and the noise from everywhere. The kitchen: Romana Gnocchi were cold, Spaghetti (Lobster) cooked to long and in part little frozen Tiramisu

I will surely go again (Soho House are favourite spots) and hope for a better kitchen performance (reason to visit a restaurant).
