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

Here they serve you with a genuine smile and nothing is a problem. Lovely restaurant on a start of a great street. Woodfire pizza oven and the Pizza was sensational, crisp and not oily, should have had more time to visit more often. Thanks for lovely lunch!

I arrived in Frankfurt on a business trip, quite late at night after a delay. There wasn't much open. The aroma of fresh pizza drew me in. Within minutes, I was seated and eating a rather excellent pizza which not only staved off the hunger, but tasted wonderful. Friendly service, relaxed atmosphere and a real find.
