Family get together

good atmosphere, tasty Antipasti, good Pizza and Pasta, friendly Service. Everytime we stopover in Cologne to visit my daughter she organises a dinner in Toscanini. It is always a warm gettogether in a Family oriented atmosphere.

We had a late dinner here after a long day of work. The place is on a relatively quiet and lonely street, but it was nice to get there and be greeted by friendly staff and see some parties there dining on a very relaxed environment. The menu is what you would expect in any mid level “Tuscan” restaurant in... More

Excellent stone oven pizza with good value prices. Service is excellent, also when arriving with a big group. Located on a quiet street but all the happy guests tend to get a little noicy as the evening passes, maybe not the ideal place for a quiet business conversation but excellent for a group or leasure talk.

This is the best pizza in Koln. My husband first took me here when we were dating back in 2007, and each time we go back to Koln, now with our daughter, we make reservations for a pizza night at Toscanini, It is the same great taste and high quality. Angelo is the best pizza maker around; he takes pride... More

We have been going to Toscanini for years now and can really recommend it. For the pizza. Service wise it really depends on where you are sitting. In the main room: Great service. Back room: We call it the cave. Dark and too warm, slow service. Rumor has it that the owner keeps the tips. All this in mind I... More

We went here for a dinner in december. We liked it, but cuisine is german-italian, plates are decent and well made, but you can feel that they miss some kind of italian twist or geniality according to me. If you go and eat italian, you should be able to order italian-style. I ordered antipasta, than a pasta and than a... More

The pizzas at the Toscanini are very big, quite good overall. You can ask to have two different "half pizza". If you can't choose between two, you can order half of each ! Don't even try to go there without a reservation. You won't get a table. Even with a late reservation, you had to wait 15 minutes. Service was... More
