20. District 5 (Amsterdam)

In a field of Michelin-starred restaurants, District 5 may seem an unlikely contender for our list, but those seeking a taste of Italy in Amsterdam are loyal diners at this well-run, authentic trattoria. Chef Emiliano Covelli crafts a menu (that changes biweekly) of various pastas and meat, fish, and vegetarian dishes, enhanced by a solid wine list featuring lots of small producers. The pizzas, including the District 5 (tomato, mozzarella, prosciutto di Parma, and arugula) and the pizza tartufo (white truffle sauce, arugula, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and buffalo mozzarella), are most probably the best in town.
