Yam Yam Trattoria Pizzeria
Italian trattoria and wood oven pizzeria
Unparalleled and inexpensive pastas and pizzas (from wood oven!) in a hip and casual atmosphere where you can eat outdoors on the terrace. Yam Yam is the Dutch translation of "yum yum" – the sound you make when you eat delicious food.
MenuThe trattoria menu offers good meat and fish dishes, homemade desserts and has delicious pasta's. It is not the casual Italian but more like a modern restaurant. But you can also go there for the pizza, which has a thin crust, is baked in a wood oven and generously garnished with fresh ingredients.
Yam Yam pizzaThe house specialty is the Yam Yam pizza with biological smoked ham, mozzarella, tomato sauce, rucola, Parmesan and truffle sauce - and a thin and crispy pizza dough. Simply delicious!
InteriorThe decor is simple with a casual and clean feel to it. The restaurant is split into two spaces with an open kitchen and the wood oven for pizza prominently featured behind the nicely white tiled counter. It has a dense feel to it as both rooms are filled with lots of small tables. In the summer there is a terrace outside.
Yam Yam is a favourite of locals as well as of travellers. Well worth the trip just outside (west) of the Jordaan, but be sure to book in advance as it is usually quite busy.
