Ponte Arcari is on the Herengracht, near the Utrechtsestraat. This small Italian restaurant is, not surprisingly, nearly always full. In the tiny kitchen really delicious classic Italian food is prepared: carpaccio, vongole, vitello tonnato, tiramisu all for a reasonable price. True, the service is slightly chaotic, with customers elbow-to-elbow but that's what gives the authentic Italian atmosphere.
