    Wonderful and intimate restaurant. There is no menu, you choose between 3, 4, or 5 courses. The host was excellent and provided great wine choices aside from the pairings. All of the food was incredible and delicious. Would definitely recommend

    My wife and I dined here last night. Michele was very gracious and accommodating and explained food and wine pairings and ingredients in detail. Georgia’s dishes were gorgeously presented, delicious, used fresh ingredients, and combined flavors and ingredients in a creative and refreshing way. Restaurant is central but in a quieter residential neighborhood away from tourist madness. Met some locals, which made for a memorable evening. Will come back next time we visit Amsterdam.

    Wonderful little restaurant with a super friendly wait staff, absolutely wonderful tasting menu and outstanding wine pairing. We chose the half option of small pours with each of our four courses and enjoyed it tremendously. Wonderful memory of our trip to Amsterdam. Very good value for quality of food and ambiance. Highly recommend.

    This restaurant is a hidden gem. The food is simply perfect: creative, sofisticated and tasty. The service is the exact blend between friendliness and respect to the best Italian traditional osterias. I’m summary, the experience is like you came to visit a family member and discovered that he/she is now an awarded chef.

    We were lucky to be able to reserve a table for a Saturday evening at short notice. The food is simply AMAZING. Living in Paris, we are spoiled for choice, but Osteria Moderna managed to surprise us in the most positive way. The dishes are small pieces of art, beautifully looking and even better tasting. The surprise menu was full of, well, surprises. The pasta with liquid parmigiano in a prawn reduction blew us away, innovative and mouth watering. The wine pairing was great too, with some unusual Italian quality wines. If you likes desert wines, ask Michele about his special find, it will not disappoint. Overall, this Italian gem in Mokum is worth a detour!

    Food was absolutely great. With a cream of roasted garlic and anchocy with the rib eye being the absolute highlight! However, four courses took four hours. And that's too long for my attention span and hunger levels haha.

    Georgia and Michele welcomed me with love and dedication. I ordered the 4 course menu. I was stunned by the quality and the freshness of the food. Absolutely yes and absolutely we will we each other again.

    Food quality was all over the board (great steak, bad vegetable pairing like a wedge of burnt chewy onion). Elements of the dishes felt disconnected and for a pre fixe menu, that’s a huge disappointment

    What I like about this place is that the two owners are the chef and the sommelier so the wine selection on offer is excellent and match very well with the food. The food is very good and it’s a surprise 3/4/5 course menu, u choose. It was a nice experience.

    Wonderful time. We recommend doing the wine pairing, it was our favorite part and was very well done. This is a great place to go for a special occasion, as the hosts allow you to take your time and the meal is also an experience.

    We were looking forward to it: surprise menu italian style, in a small restaurant with a nice design! - wine: great choice - service/ friendly - meal: way too salty (raviolis and even the tomato icecream).. our neighbors even sent one plate back. First plate was original but fruits used were not ripe?.. - the evening was spoiled by a table of 6 with 2 crying babie and a toddler -tough luck- and the average waiting time of 45 mn between the courses. - it felt way to expensive: for 280eu for four.. We do assume we ll get more quality and tempo. Maybe it was a day off for the team?

    We loved everything about our meals! The atmosphere, the owners and then the three course tasting menu was magnificent! Truly the combinations the chef did were out of this world! We loved it so much we went back in the same week. Worth every euro and more!

    Thank you, it was our pleasure. Have a safe trip back to US. Arrivederci!!!

    Fantastic food, surprise menu 3 or 4 courses, light, but proper Italian dishes beautifully presented and very very tasty. Have few times now in last month and every time several tables full of Italian people. That's a sign that this is really good Italian food!

    Wine serving per glass seemed quite stingy (for the price per glass). Food was excellent recommend the chef's 3 or 4 course daily surprise menu. Wonderful to get a proper lunch vs the 'broodje' (on poor quality bread) that is everywhere in Amsterdam (so few good places to eat a decent lunch)

    Food was special, delicious and had a lot of taste. Staff suggested a lovely wine with the food and seemed to personally know every winery that was present on the wine menu. Will return.

    Food incredible..amazing. we took the 5 dishes menu and although we had some allergic and food diets, we got incredible food. I strongly recommend and I'm sure others will write great reviews

  • David S.8 reviews

    Serious cooking, clearly the chef is ambitious in wanting to make a name. The food is high quality and with eye for detail. We felt the food was not typical Italian. No surprise maybe, as the name of the restaurant already implies a modern twist to traditional Italian food. Overall a good experience, but if you’re hungry, the 3 course tasting menu is for sure too little food. Both appetizer and main course were (too) small.
