It took 35 minutes to get a drink, the starter and main cane within 20 minutes😕

Noise was so loud and bad, and the pasta undercooked, risotto undercooked, beef was not tender, over all not good at all!

The ambience was great! The wine was great. Service did there best. Only we needed to ask 4 times for more bread. The food was really not good! We came many times to different places in Italy but this food was not even come close. The meatballs way too salty. With the buratta we could play golf!! The seabsrs was doable the meat and pasta also okay not excellent. We orderd all the desserts on the menu and we only liked the salted caramel and tiramisu.

We keep on going above to the soho house but not anymore to this restaurant.

We went voor de Sunday lunch which is a buffet. The food was good. Service you have to be lucky who is helping you. Some of the staff is reaaly great but we where in an area thatvwas less fortunate. Drinks were forgotten twice. And luckily we could get our food ourselves.
Still a great place to eat!

Cecconi's is THE Sunday brunch location in Amsterdam. Relaxed, charming, bustling and loads of delectable food choice.

We come here often! It's one of our favorite places to eat Italian food & have drinks. The aubergine parmigiano is the best. Lovely live music by a great pianist & singer!

Very much overpriced and poor service. Food is nice but there are much better Italian restaurants in town for half the price. Waiters care more about themselves than the customers

When entering the restaurant, the first thing told was the time we had to leave. After sitting we asked for another table, but this was not possible due to reservations. The table we’ve asked for, was empty for another 1,5 hour.
The starters where good, but the maincourses very disappointing. The pizza was burned and the meat was extremely huge and not very tastefull. It was my birthday, but it wasn’t a great experience.

Mooie inrichting, fijne ambiance. Bediening erg beleefd alhoewel we vaak wel erg lang moesten wachten voordat er iemand langs kwam. Aanraders: 'Beef tartare, black truffle, quail egg' 'Doversole' en 'Spaghetti lobster'

Lovely place. Classic decor. The food was very nice but a little sparse. The service was good. Perhaps the lighting was a little too low

Lovely restaurant in a wonderful location. This really is a beautiful building with a great feel about the place. As we walked in we were welcomed by the staff, there was someone playing the piano in the restaurant which was a nice touch. Food and wine was really great. Unfortunately the service was rather slow and we had to ask several times for our wine to be topped up and to place our first drinks order took a long time! Bit of a shame because it really could be one of the best places to eat in Amsterdam but the service let it down a bit. Was still a great place with delicious food in a really grand location

Cheap pizza’s and brunch at 14.30 was pretty much finished and not ‘refilled’. At €45,- an absolute overpriced and bad quality food experience. We will not be back!

I had lunch with my best friend for her birthday at Cecconi and from the beginning until the end was exceptional. The service and food was outstanding and I was very happy I made the reservation at this restaurant. I want to thank the staff for such a wonderful day and I will be coming back very soon again! Special thanks to Djando Dominico (I hope I wrote it right) and the gentleman with the nice moustache. The service was out of this world. I worked in the hospitality business for many years and this is how service should be like. Once again a huge thank you Cecconi for having such a magical day!

We were welcomed in a friendly manner, due to our table not being ready the lady sent us to have a drink at the bar. Unfortunately, there were no spots available at the bar but it was okay for us so we waited. Our waitress started off with telling us she was hungry and did not inform us about the restaurant. She did not come across as happy/proud to be working. It was a real pitty that her service was of poor quality as her colleagues were great and the food was outstanding. Would definitely recommend, however this lady could really have gotten more out of our evening because of her behaviour.

Cecconi’s is a beautiful place. The Sunday buffet is very appealing but the meats that are so tempting are cold. I had no pleasure in eating cold pork, they must find a better system to keep them warm. The oysters were so small and the circulation on the right of the buffet where the oysters are is way too tight as it is the end of the bar and there is the cart with the plates there too so you keep having to fight your way to it if there is just one person already there. Otherwise the pasti and salads were great as well as the cakes. A waiter took a tea saucer out I do not know why and when I asked for a new one, he just dropped it on the table, would have been good service if he had put it under the tea cup... why did I have to do it? Yes waiters and waitresses are all very lovely. A beautiful place but above stated improvements would make it a Wonderful.

A lovely atmosphere in Cecconi's however the brunch buffet selection could have more variety and empty dishes such as salads could be replaced faster. The meat always tends to be cold and as a result loses flavour, how about a new hot plate to better maintain the buffet meat options to at least room temperature?

Very good food and friendly staff. The Italian waiter was an entertainer and knew the menu very well. Only suggestion I have for improvement is a wardrobe service at the entrance.

Absolutely stunning venue and location. We got a nice table as booked ahead. Biggest downside is the service from the waiting staff. Must be the worst I have seen in a long time in Amsterdam. Long wait until orders are taken, a hassle to get our coats taken away from the table, not responding to request to fill up our wine glasses and before you know it, in large part due to the poor waiting staff, our 2 hour period was over and we ended up forced to eat our desert in the bar area (where we were seated). Food was OK, not great (as described in some of the reviews from local newspapers).

You have to be done with dining within 2 hours. We had our desert and our Berlini's still on the table and the manager asked us to move because he needed the table for new guests. After 5 min. he came back and he didn't had any spare places left for us to finish our drinks or desert. Their problem became our problem and the manager told us this was their policy.

The restaurant has an nice, living room charm but it was very noisy. I was surprised at how full it was for a Tuesday evening. The staff is very attentive and the food was delicious. I would definitely want to go again but may request a table in a corner that isn't so loud.

Just one thing I found a shame is that our two-hour slot started at 14.45 but the food was cleared at 16.00 so not really a two-hour slot.

A nice atmosphere and generally good food, but it was all cold - even the hot food such as risotto, roast potatoes and pizza was not kept warm once it was placed on the buffet.
