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 Also no atmosphere at all as all completely outdated.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 was looking for another restaurant but thought this was it. Found out after I left that the restaurant I wanted was actually across the street. 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

They refused to accept payment with a credit card saying that card was declined by the bank. Food is good but overpriced and waiting time is not always reasonable. In my estimation 5 waiters are serving around 60 guests. They are doing their job virtuously but obviously facility is understaffed! Free tapas with vine. Refusal to get payment via credit... More

I didn't even get as far as dining here. The man who served me was very rude about my British accent (I still do speak fluent German though). He was speaking in a slow, patronising voice and had no interest in being polite- just shoving the specials board in my face and being rude............so I left...This might be a nice... More

I dined at this restaurant twice in a row. It was close to my hotel and my customers liked it. Italian staff, Menu on a board that is brought to your table. Twice ate fish, very good. Wine selection good. Not tried the dessert. Very busy, better to reserve. Has outside tables with some heating.
