Pinsa's pizza is just great. It is prepared in a style slightly different from traditional Naples, with less tomato and a thin, soft dough (friends mentioned this is 'Rome style'? Can't say if that exists). The dough is the best we've had out of Italy and the seasonal pizzas are rich, if only on the expensive side like most pizza... More

Am baffled by the positive reviews! This was by far the worst pizza I have had in my entire life. Maybe it was just the wrong choice, I had the Parmigiana. Either way will def not return here!

Dear customer, I would like to respond point by point. 1.

If we comparisons with a restaurant with 200 seats, of course we are small... More

After reading some reviews of Gluten free food at Pinsa's I was excited to get a pizza on the last day of my holiday. We booked a reservation 2 days in advance like the website recommend if you needed catering for gf food. I never ever write bad reviews, but unfortunately my experience here was really disappointing. When I got... More

The pizza's are great, real and authentic Italian. The service and the food is quite slow but if you have been in the place you know that is in this case also just part of the charm. Go here if you are looking for high quality pizza.

This restaurant has an entire room for kids to play so that you can enjoy your pizza knowing the kids are safe. Great pizza. My favourite is the one with n'duja if you like it spicy

Very good pizza’s (#3 in the world…) in a basic (Ikea style) setting. There is a big choice of mainly pizza’s. The restaurant is run by an Italian mother and her son, who both only speak English. You can see they are passionate to deliver the best pizza possible. They also innovate and come with new pizza’s every season. For... More

What is there else to say? It's the best pizza of Amsterdam, and number 10 of the world. They're only open in the evening hours, and it's a bummer they're closed on Sunday's.

Pinsa's was recommended to my boyfriend, and I'm glad he listened. The pizza was genuinely delicious and the staff were friendly. We were initially sat on a teeny table near the door even though we had booked in advance but we moved no problem to a different one and had a lovely experience at this restaurant.

It took a while to get our food, but it was good when we got it. The old lady running the place is really nice, but it took her some time to figure out the computer, and they don't take credit cards. What year is this?

Description
In the World Pizza Championship 2013 we are 11 in the world and 1 in Nederland.The reasons why our pizzas are special: We use one of the best Italian mixtures of flour: bio soybean, wheatand rice flour. We leave our dough to rise for 48/72 hours. Features of our Pizza: Thin - Crispy - Low calorieand - Light - Easily Digested. We have special rooms for large groups (26 people). It's still best to book a table in advance (one week) on Thursday, Friday and Saturday
