One of the liveliest restaurants in Amsterdam, Cinema Paradiso used to be, as the name suggests, a cinema. The former auditorium is now the main dining area of the restaurant, with an open kitchen to one side where one can watch the vibrant preparation of various culinary delights. On offer are a large selection of Antipasti, Bruschette (various Italian bread), Rosticceria (for four persons), salads, pasta dishes, pizzas, and desserts. An excellent selection of wines, champagne, and spumante are available.
It is only possible to book a table for parties of ten persons or more, so the only way to be assured of a table is to arrive at 6pm when the doors open.
