Food Wise- Octopus did not agree with me and suggest another starter or salad. Wine and overall value was good but on the high side of the... read more

Two colleagues and I were in Bad Homburg on business and stumbled upon this restaurant, built in what appeared from the name and the decor to be an old banking hall. The menu was not extensive but there was plenty of choice, both with regard to food and wine. My squid appetiser was superb as was the veal special of... More

Business associate brought me here and I really enjoyed it. The room and the decor were inspiring and artful. The food was really solid too. I had the shrimp scampi and they were the largest prawns this side of flemings steak house in the US. Incredibly meaty and came with the heads attached. Good crusty bread and a decent if... More

This is supposed to be an Italian restaurant, but I was deeply disappointed to have a dinner here. The appetizer (octopus) was barely acceptable, but the meat (beef tagliata) was stiff and the arugula with grana were served in a separate disk, as a salad. The wine was not bad... Globally too expensive.

This very nice place offers, when the weather allows it) the option to eat on the terrace, inside or in between (inside but next to the fully open window). The food offered is based on traditional Italian cuisine with local ingredients where appropriate. It also offers a good choice of well priced excellent wines (some also available by glass). Traditionally... More

Walked in to this restaurant on the very quiet Sunday evening in Bad Homburg. Instantly felt like a lucky break. The waiters were spot on traditional Italian. Had some of the best lamb ever - the serving was huge! We asked for a recommendation from the wine list within a given budget and was richly rewarded with an excellent red... More

A very nice evening out with some working collegues. The menu of choice consisted of a small Prosecco, a small starter , an intermezzo disk with truffle pasta, an excellent seafood disk as main course, an awesome desert. All paired with a nice bottle of White and Red wine. It was one of the better Italian menus I was able... More

Food that melts in your mouth. If you want to experience Italian gourmet dining with that extra innovative, contemporary touch, then this is the place to be. Every detail from the decor to the service is "Italian". The restaurant is conveniently situated near the center of Bad Homburg and close to the beautiful "Kurpark" and hotels. I would recommend a...
