Really enjoyable meal

Had a really good meal here. The truffle pasta dish was exquisite. I'd come here again and would recommend this place without reservation.

We tried this restaurant based on a recommendation from our hotel and were presently surprised. The staff were very warm and welcoming and joked with us through out the meal. They translated the menu into English and made recommendations. We had scallops, pasta and meat dishes which were all excellent. The tiramisu was also excellent for dessert! If you are... More

So my family of four was in Cologne for the Weinachtenmarket and staying at the Marriott. We had no dinner reservations and arrived at 6 pm on Friday evening-so we expected we were not going to do well on a restaurant. But the hotel reception attendant (great asset for the Marriott team) called over to Luciano II and wangled us... More

If you want to feel like you are eating with with a lovely Italian family, eat here! Amazing food, friendly and wonderful service. Menu is on a chalk board so it changes every day. The chef was happy to offer things not on the menu. Cozy and perfect!

Luciano's was one of several recommendations from the nearby Hilton staff. Good choice! The food is authentic, tasty, and appealing. Staff are somewhat brusque, but come around with a little encouragement. Luciano's is typically quite busy till the late evening.

Totally overpriced Italian with food quality below average, a tourist trap in Cologne! Also no atmosphere at all as all completely outdated. There is no Menu to choose from, the waiter comes to you with a badly written peace of wood, which is hardly readable from your sit and gives you about 30seconds to decide. After he made you decide... More

1 minute walk from the Hilton Hotel Cologne you can find this Italian restaurant (actually, there are 2 Italian restaurants next to each other, this can be a little confusing). From the outside the appeal is not so nice, also the interior is really not very nice. However, as I said do not judge a book by its cover, the... More

We tried to get in at the Italian next door which had a much higher tripadvisor ranking but it was fully booked due to the marathon taking place the next day and everywhere was busy. So our hotel recommended this place instead. It was fine, nothing particularly special. We took our German phrase book with us to help read the... More
