A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Vraag een Italiaan in Nederland waar je hier lekker Italiaans kunt eten en het zou goed kunnen dat het antwoord niet zo eenvoudig over de lippen komt. Italianen zijn immers gepassioneerd over eten en nemen niet gauw genoegen met half werk. Zo ook Marco Spina, dat samen met compagnon Daniele Lauritano de leiding heeft over Risto Enoteca Pepenero. Met een grotendeels Italiaanse garde koken ze niet ‘authentiek’, maar gewoon ECHT Italiaans. Geen wonder dat Marco en Daniele door de jaren heen behoorlijk wat gasten van stand hebben ontvangen: Mick Jagger, Marco Borsato en zo’n beetje de gehele Ajax-selectie gingen je voor.


Het team werkt volgens 3 basiswaarden: Professionaliteit, Italiaanse passie en Kwalitatieve Italiaanse producten. Probeer zo veel mogelijk van die verschillende producten te proberen - Antipasto misto alla PepeNero is dus sowieso een goed idee. Of laat je door Daniele verrassen met de beste Italiaanse kwaliteit die ze je te bieden hebben.

    We have been in the restaurant during our holidays in Amsterdam, found the place well recommended from few people. The ambience is very nice, cosy and makes me feel in Italy. Then the food: great and fresh products, the Burratina was just amazing and milky; And the Pastas “TOP”, well cooked and very tasty. The service was very attentive and cool! I highly recommend it! Thanks a lot Guys

    After living in Amsterdam for less than a year, I have finally found THE best Italian restaurant in town! Really cozy atmosphere with dimmed lights, in a beautiful area. Amazing service, staff is really good, multilingual and friendly, they cook some of the dishes in front of you (including spaghetti flambe in a large wheel of parmesan with Brandy Vecchia Romagna), the selection of wine is absolutely fine with wines ranging 20 to 60 Eur. Definitely a place I will visit many times from now! I recommend without any doubt!

    We have been to many Italien restaurants, but this one is one of the most impressive one. Not only because the meal types and delicious taste, but also the table side cooking! ( the waiting time between salad and main dish is a little too long....)

    Absolutely outstanding again. I could eat everything off the menu for the rest of my life. Superb service, especially from the tall, smiley, Sicilian with the glasses!

    PepeNero is the ultimate Italian restaurant in the Netherlands. Great ambiance and a classic menu. If you’re a millennial hipster looking for novelty this restaurant might not be perfect for you, but everybody that truly loves Italian cuisine owes it to themselves to pay them a visit.

    The food was excellent. Between 4 of us we had a mix of most of the antipasti for starters and they were very good quality - the ingredients were superb, so he overall effect was great. For mains we covered pesce, carne and pasta and all were superb, often with a slight twist in what was expected (the pesto, for example, was less punchy than usual, more subtle and more enjoyable for that). The service was a bit slow - it took about 40 minutes from ordering to receiving the first course - but that did not detract from the meal. A lovely meal, great quality and well cooked. I hope to come back some day.

Italian traditions

In the Netherlands we love the sunny flavors of the Mediterranean. The welcoming culture and the sensational flavors of the Italian cuisine are one of the biggest favorites. Risto Enoteca Pepenero in Amsterdam has a great name despite of tough competition. Led by host Marco Spina and Chef Daniele Laurintano they know exactly how to present the culinary treasures of Italy. Their secret? Authentic family recipes and hard work.
