Cecconi's Amsterdam serves classic northern Italian food with a modern twist.
Located on the ground floor of the Bungehuis, the 130-seat restaurant includes a lounge with retractable glazed ceiling for an Italian courtyard feel, a large horse shoe shaped bar and a formal dining area and private dining room overlooking the canals of Amsterdam.
Originating in London’s Mayfair, Cecconi’s was first opened in 1978 by Enzo Cecconi, the youngest-ever general manager of the famous Cipriani in Venice. Reopened and then taken over by Soho House in 2005, the restaurant has been kept true to its original form. Cecconi’s Amsterdam continues to reference its history.
Executive Chef Lorenzo Zanaga worked alongside Soho House’s Executive Chef Andrea Cavalerie, to create a menu that offers a variety of cicchetti (Italian tapas), seasonal vegetables and salads, along with house-made pastas and pizzas. Main dishes include a selection of meat, fish and vegetarian options, all prepared in a wood- burning oven or charcoal grill.
The restaurant offers some incredible dishes, and delicious cocktails. It's in my opinion and opinion of many people the best Italian restaurant in Amsterdam. I have experienced it after a delighful time at their spa Cowshed right next door. You can book it as a package, which i would suggest for a relaxing afternoon. – Timotej Letonja
Soho House’s in-house team, Soho House Design, led the restaurant’s design. Blending the old with the new, the space fuses classic Venetian elements such as pink exterior plaster works, which speak to the restaurant's Italian heritage, with vintage furniture and Art deco characteristics of the Bungehuis. The three distinct areas were created to offer something for everyone – from a dinner in the main dining room or lounge, to a negroni and pizzetta at the main bar.
Cecconi’s Amsterdam is open from Monday through Sunday. Mondays through Wednesdays between 3pm and 6pm there is Cecconi’s Aperitivo Hour, with a small menu consisting of bites and drinks. For private events, options range from partial buy-outs, to dinners or cocktail receptions within the restaurant's private dining room.
Additional Cecconi’s outposts are located in West Hollywood and Miami, along with London, Berlin, Istanbul and most recently, Barcelona.
