Very good pizza

Very good pizza diavolo (thin crust) and outstanding tiramisu. Tiramisu was close to what you get in Italian which is quite rare. Nice ambience, service. Red wine was excellent. Reasonably priced.

I can very well recommend Toscanini, a very tasty wood oven pizza and Italian food restaurant. Pizza is pretty big at a perfect value for money ratio. Other meals are a little more expensive but usually tasty and classic. Toscanini was just renovated and is therefore pretty new and modern. Pay attention to make a reservation since it will mostly...

We keep on coming back for their excellent lunch menu. For nearly 10 Eur you get the daily menu for lunch, which is soup or salat (huge), a pizza or a daily changing meal and a espresso or dessert. We keep on coming back, as food, value, service and atmosphere is great.

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
