About us

Toscanini was founded in 1985 in a small street in the Amsterdam neighbourhood the Jordaan. In 1990 the restaurant moved to its current location on the Lindengracht.

In 1999 Leonardo Pacenti, born in South-Africa with a Italian father, became chef-owner. Leonardo’s cooking is intuitive and passionate, with whatever ingredients he has at his disposal.

We use recipes from different Italian regions, often executed in the classica way, but also often with our own “twist”.

Toscanini’s wine list is, apart from champagnes, completely Italian, with many hidden pearls of small producers.

Unfortunately we are closed for some weeks. But we will continue with take-away and delivery. For warm take-away meals check the button order now in the bottom right corner. For delivery check Deliveroo for the possibilities for lunch and dinner meals.

And of course our Deli next door will remain open for meals to prepare at home. We have a lot of beautiful Italian products (think of pasta sauces and fresh ravioli to cook at home). Check out Toscanini Deli.

A presto!
