La Favola, Amsterdam
Every one has his own favourite local Italian place right? With a local Italian I mean a restaurant close to your house, which serves delicious traditional Italian food and where you could easily go for easy dinner. No modern interior, no moliculair kitchen, and no need for dress up. My local Italian is La Favola. It’s just around the corner of my house, has approximately twelve tables, typical romantic Italian decoration and amazing food. They have a fixed menu, with classics like carpaccio, filetto and shrimps. But also a daily menu with specialties. La Favola is a restaurant you really go to for good food and hospitality. I (Hunter Niels) am a big fan of fish, and at Favola they serve different maincourses of fish each week. I prefer starting with antipasti. When you have antipasti at La Favola the whole table will be covered in small dishes. As a main course I often go for a grilled fish, and I love finishing my dinner at La Favola with a Scropino. So enough reason for me to come back. Besides that, the son of the owners (a couple who are the chef of the restaurant) is very attractive and a great host.
