The pizza in here is fantastic. Also tried the stuffed pepper with rice which was lovely. Accommodating for large groups.

Not bad pizza, and pasta. Wine is fine. Beer good German style. Go for the Pizza Judas- it'll turn on you! Great service. Picturesque interior.

Really great Italian food. The steaks (and lamb shank when it is on the menu) and Pizzas are amazing. i always eat there on my monthly business trip to cologne. The house wine is also really good qulity and resonably priced. Service is really freindly and the staff are really pleasant (not always the case in Cologne) bit can be... More

We ate there our last dinner in Cologne and it was nice place, but! The place is to dark so if you are looking for place with light this is not the place to eat. The soups are great! Very recommended.. The pizza is missing tomato sauce, so it seems like you eating bread with cheese. The pasta is great!

This was our last dinner in Koln (Cologne). The atmosphere was electric with business people partying at the end of a stressful convention. The buzz was contagious. We had to order a pizza because it looked so good as waiters scurried by carrying large orders. We were not disappointed. Our waiter in particular was awesome, so friendly, engaging, and professional.... More

Perhaps it was because of the trade fair peak visiting time ...but waiting more than an hour for the food and on average 20 minutes for a glass of wine is not nice... It's a rather industrial place, old is ok but not more. The kind of place for large touri-groups/busses. Cologne ha so s many other better places ...... More

Initially put in a little back area with no atmosphere, but changed to main room on request. Lovely candlelight and painted ceilings. Busy but not frantic. Such a friendly waiter from Italy, and amazing food. Pizzas as good as Naples. Steak from Ireland cooked perfectly. Wine served at the right temperature. Quite a relief after eating so much German food!

Our waiter was rude and sexist. Apparently women don't order for themselves. The arugala salad was ok -too much dressing, but the penne arrabiata,a house specialty, was really really bad. Don't waste your time or money here.

I have just returned from a week long business trip in Cologne and ate here twice. The place was a virant bubbling noise of chatter and clatter, a real great atmosphere. The food was very well priced and the Pizzas were very good indeed. The desserts were alo very good :-) Will definately return next January!
