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.

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 Also no atmosphere at all as all completely outdated.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

Great food, well informed staff and the Truffle Spaghetti, well no words, just FANTASTIC!! I informed them that we were both Vegetarians and they promptly suggested the Buratta with Tomatoes and the Spaghetti and another dish - the food was perfect, the service perfect, shall definitely go back!!

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

We went there on a business dinner (three people). Our food was mediocre to say the least. We all ordered fish and the flavors were very flat and un-interesting. The portions were quite small so we ordered bread a couple of times... The service was good and the waitors friendly. The big surprise was the check! It was very pricy... More

I arrived 15 minutes too early however being that it was chilly outside, A waiter came to me and said that I was too early. I asked if I could sit inside until they... More
