Mappa Italian Restaurant in Amsterdam

At Mappa they don’t pretend to be the Italian Stalion, they are Amsterdammers who embrace the Italian kitchen. They don’t always play by the Italian rules, but their choices are well made. Little Vinnie & Ard are given the creative freedom in our kitchen, the result? Great tasting, beautiful food inspired by recipes from all over Italy.

The history of Mappa Amsterdam

In the very heart of the city on the historic Nes street, Mappa is situated in a former coffee house which was opened in 1810 by the Frascati brothers who became famous for their very popular Frascati Café (from 1940 on). Later, the building was a theater and the Frascati Café was just a part of it. Since 2001, however, restaurant Mappa is the happy occupant. Mappa offers Italian cuisine and everything is home-made and made with love. Authentic Italian food is what Mappa offers, and the restaurant is proud of the fact that all its homemade dishes are made from fresh, organic products. Mappa is mainly known for its variety of pasta dishes, but it also has some beautiful antipasti (starters) and a few fish and meat specialties. The menu at Mappa is changed regularly to ensure creativity and quality in the kitchen.

Needless to say, good Italian food goes hand in hand with beautiful wines. The wine list at Mappa is predominantly Italian, from small vineyards in Puglia to great wine masters such as Walter Massa. The interior of Restaurant Mappa is stylish in a timeless way; 60 people can be seated here. The staff at Mappa is friendly and always ready to help. As hospitality is very important to Mappa, you are guaranteed a wonderful evening out at the restaurant.
