I had black ravioli with Truffle/cheese filling in a cream sauce, which was very nice. The home-made pasta was delicious but the overall dish lacked a 'wow' factor. It was very good. The cannelloni was also very good, and filling, but also lacked a 'wow' factor. Charming atmosphere. Giovanni the owner is always warm and friendly, his staff is less... More

After reading the many positive reviews of this place, we came here expecting excellent food and atmosphere, but we found neither. The decor and server uniforms were outdated and a bit kitschy. Our waitress was fine but we noticed some of the other servers serving food and drinks rather unprofessionally. We started with bruschetta, which was tasty but nothing special... More

Best bruschetta ever...the veal limone was outstanding and salad was fresh. Loved the interior of old and very cozy setting. Very relaxed evening, they never rush you to leave. Funny ending to evening, learned they do not take credit cards and had to carefully count our remaining euros to pay bill. Good thing we resisted the tiramisu but next time... More

One of the best restaurants in Marburg. Nice old building with a romantic flair inside. Perfect meals and very good service.

Located at the historic Marburg market place, Hostario del Castello provides best Italian food and services in an historic restaurant. The menue is extensive and various, the wine selection is good. The food is excellent, special wishes (e.g. without garlic) are always answered. The restaurant is located in a old half-timber house in the first floor, hence the restaurant is... More

We have been eating here several times now, since almost 4 years. The food is really good and the atmosphere is cosy. I would definitely recommend the "pleus a la chef" (grilled mushroom with garlic, sage and olive oil), our favourite starter. Pizza is ok (not excellent but decently good), but there is much more on the menu that is... More

The owner himself served us and he was so friendly. We were seated outside on the side walk overlooking the historic market palce in the old town of Marburg. The pizza was excellent and so were the appetizers Burgundy snails and the Italian salad. If you look for good italian food do not look further...go to the Valente!!!

We went on a hot Saturday evening and wanted to sit outside like everybody. We could wait inside and the staff made sure that we could sit outside on the terrace for our dinner. The personal was very busy and a bit hectic but they took good care of us no matter what. It was very lovely and the food... More

In nice weather, seating at the outdoor tables looking down the street toward the Markt and the Rathaus cannot be beat. The cuisine is primarily pasta and pizza. Don't expect anything gourmet, but the service was excellent and the prices were fair.

We came here because it is rated the # 2 restaurant in Marburg, don´t be fooled. The (frozen) pike-perche fillet with microwaved potatoes and maybe fresh cooked broccoli (E23) was almost tasteless. The pizza just ok for (E6). We would not eat there again.
