Market
“an excellent organic farmers market held on Saturdays at the Nordermarkt from 09h - 16h. The wild mushroom stall is wonderful and Le Perron sells great bread. The place to go for picnic supplies before you hire a boat and picnic on the canals”

Italian Restaurant
$$
“The strength of the Italian cuisine is its purity, simplicity and honesty. In Toscanini we cook according to this tradition. Every day, except on Sundays, the chefs prepare dishes from carefully chosen ingredients. The vegetables come from organic farms or from Italy. The meat is from the organic butcher and fish arrives fresh every day. We bake bread in our own bakery, and the pasta is homemade. We work with various products of Slow Food presidia in Italy. Presidia are projects that enable small producers to keep working on a small-scale and artisanal basis while using the original products and production methods from their region. The wine list features only wines from Italy, most made from native grape varieties. The large, bright space with open kitchen and the informal atmosphere is a main attraction of the restaurant.”

“"Our terrace is comfortable and pleasant where you can take place on the Prinsen as well as on the Brouwersgracht! The benches we put around our building during the Amsterdam terrace season will be provided with large soft pillows on the beautiful days so that everyone can enjoy the view in comfort. There are also pillows on the roof above the kitchen. From this wonderful hangout is the crossroads, the canal, the street as well as the bar to oversee !!!! During Queen's Day and the Gay Parade you have the best view of the canal and the boats on this corner".”
