Café De Curtis is situated in the Tweede Anjeliersdwarsstraat, one of my favorite streets of the Jordaan. The street is full of nice restaurants and bars, like Burgers Patio, Café de Tuin and La Perla (soon to be reviewed). But it’s also known for the many Italian restaurants and that’s why this street is called Little Italy. It always makes me feel like I’m abroad, especially in Summer!
As does dinner at Café De Curtis: the noisy mediterranean atmosphere, the expats, the tourists, the Italian owner Marcello and waiter Angelo who stand outside the restaurant to meet and greet everyone they know from the neighbourhood. Also inside they make you as comfortable as you want, you feel right at home (at least I did!). It’s like you’re in someone’s living room. Like we Dutchies say “het is gezellig” (cosy as some might say).
Café De Curtis is an authentic Italian restaurant with a minimalistic interior and delicious food. As a starter we enjoyed tuna fish with rocket and a soft burrata with grilled veggies. Then we shared pasta vongole and ravioli with spinach and ricotto with a butter of sage. And as a main tasty white fish and the deliciously tender Filetto de Curtis with truffle butter and Parmesan cheese! The last one is a De Curtis’ specialty.
