Amsterdam South has a new spot: La Lotteria, a typical Italian Osteria where pure Italian dishes fill the menu. It is a special collaboration between the Goede Doelen Loterijen and The Color Kitchen, and I would love to tell you more about this inspiring place.
In Italy an osteria is a restaurant where you get a big portion of simple but fresh food and feels as if it is your second living room
La Lotteria is located on the ground floor in the head office of the “Goede Doelen Loterijen”, which is the most sustainable renovated building in the Netherlands. It is a beautiful building where sustainability is key. All energy the building uses comes from 949 solar panels on the roof and water for plants and toilets – about 37 percent of all water consumption – is collected by rain. In addition, they are also supporting the unemployed community by training students from The Color Kitchen. The Color Kitchen is a social hospitality company where people with a disadvantage in the labor market are trained to become hospitality professionals (with a diploma) which gives these people new career opportunities.
Food & Drinks
On the menu you will find an extensive selection of the most delicious Italian dishes, aperitivi and wines. The products they use are of top quality and the ingredients and wines are organic and Fair Trade as much as possible. Every dish is prepared with local and seasonal products and there are collaborations with Instock and Wastewatchers to prevent food waste as much as possible. (Yes, all about sustainability!) The Pizza is highly recommended: it is light, thin and crispy. (Exactly how I want it!)
The richly prepared bruschetta, with for example mackerel and aubergine, are delicious as appetizer. You also have a wide choice of freshly caught fish, meat, pasta, salad and of course not to forget .. Italian desserts! From the house wine to a more luxurious choice, you can decide for yourself how exuberant you want to make it. You can have a three course meal starting around 30 euros which makes it very accessible to everyone.
La Lotteria is modern and tastefully decorated, it really feels like a warm living room
Overall, La Lotteria is an osteria with great food and wines but also with a purpose and a message. From a quick pasta and a good glass of wine to extensive dining with a bottle, there is something for everybody!
