Friday evening we had the pleasure of trying some real authentic Italian food at D’Antica in Amsterdam. The owner and the chef had arranged a special menu as we were with a delegation from the AIC (Accademia Italiana della Cucina).
Antipasto fresh tuna with a caviar of balsamico
A dish of antipasti: mozzarella, carciofi, fried aubergine and olives, pancetta, tonno fitello
Ravioli with meat dressed with a sauce of cherry tomatoes
Freshly cooked meat seasoned with a delicious truffle sauce
Chocolate cake with an ice cream cone
Overall it was a wonderful experience in good company! We enjoyed the variety of dishes and the ambiance in the restaurant. We were close to the open kitchen and could watch closely what was being prepared.
