Tuesday dinner

Was invited to have a dinner. Slightly confusing experience. Tuesday night. Supposed not to be too busy. Somehow the staff managed to make it busy. Ok. Antipasti, risotto, fish, tuna were perfect. Meat and truffel pasta need to improve. We were a group of 10. Most of us really happy. Most likely... read more

We were a group of five and reserved in advance to ensure we got a table. The waiter was welcoming but after that service was not very good. Two of us ordered starters - one was sent back because it was not correct and my minestrone soup was lukewarm and not very good. From arrival we waited for an hour... More

I am originally a New Yorker, but now reside in Germany. If you know New Yorkers, we are very convinced our pizza is the best in the world. Unlike other New Yorkers, however, I have traveled all over the world, and in most countries I have also tried their pizza. OK, not every NY pizza is the best, but a... More

We were staying at the Westin and thus was recommended as a good nearby pizza. I asked the waiter if he was featured in a photo on the wall and he said no, it was from 1971. I said that I was in Ffm then and always went to Pizza Petro in Sachsenhausen and he said that the photo was... More

I don't get the fuss, this place comes highly recommended, the pizza is average, pasta so so. And the secundi platti forget about it.. Terrible open wines.....Busy with the locals though, maybe because its fairly priced, but it's nothing to get excited about

Colleague invited me to this restaurant. When we arrived I was quite skeptical as from outside it looked more like a cheap, old fashion Italian bistro in Germany i.e. not good. Now, the ambience in this case is a wrong indication of what food you can expect. As always I have asked for staff reco and ended up with octopus... More

The food was excellent for the price range, the staff were very helpful and made good recommendations. On top of that the wine was also good. The reason I rated this only Average was that on top of the standard taxes and service charges added to my >200EUR bill, I found a very questionable 10EUR on my bill for cigarettes...which... More

No offence but I've lived in Italy for a while and I could tell the difference between good and bad pizzas. Not only that the dough was hard, the topping was lacking the aroma of fresh ingredients. The type and the amount of cheese isnt the same as what the Italians put, let alone the authenticity of proposed menu. The... More
