26 February 2017

Order Italian food platters at PIccolo Amsterdam

Piccolo Amsterdam is the new spot where you want and can taste the most delicious anti pasti on a food platter in Amsterdam West. Travel with us to the beautiful Italy at Piccolo Amsterdam. A small place next to De Hallen at the Tollenstraat where you can go to for a good coffee, lunch or light dinner. Wíth one of the aperitivio platters, or better said an Italian food platter. Olives, cheeses, ham, bread, and everything you could wish for to complete the perfect date night. For only ten euros you can already enjoy a food platter. Order a good glass of Italian wine or the spiced ginger mojito with it and your weekend started of right.

Nice: Piccolo means small in Italian. It’s all about the little – piccolo- moments in life and how to celebrate them. Piccolo tries tat by serving small tapas for lunch, aperitivo or a simple dinner.

Enjoy the beautiful Italy at Piccolo Amsterdam

Piccolo Amsterdam grew out of a lifelong dream, the owner wanted an Italian café where you walk in for a cup of coffee or an aperitif before dinner. Not really craving anti pasti? Order the zucchini soup with truffle butter and fresh bread for only 3 euros or take the pasta pesto or broccoli and gorgonzola quiche for 4 euros. Tip: don’t end your Italian night before ordering a caffé affogato, a double espresso with melted vanilla ice cream, it’s so delicious!

Piccolo Amsterdam gives you that amazing Italian feeling. A place with a lot of light, a lot of wood and a lot of plants and flowers. Oh we love that mediterranean feeling!
