Authentic Italian Pizza

Great pizza, most of the staff was Italian which is cool. The pizza tasted just like in Italy and the prices were more than reasonable. I recommend!

This place was quite easy to find, it had seating outside which was nice on a warm summers evening. Staff was very attentive and polite and was only too happy to advise and suggest, as well as translate. There was a pizza connoisseur among us who rated his pizza as one of the best ever! Pasta was superb too and... More

We got a great homemade pasta and a pizza. Great friendly staff. Great price 25 euro for both food and one beer and one glass of wine. We recommend it.

Pass this place pretty often and it always seems to be packed during dinner. Drop by for brunch. Pretty nice pasta. Waiter was attentive. But I couldn't finish the huge portion. Wish I did. Read many reviews on the pizza, will be back very soon.

I am Italian and I am always disappointed as I never find real Italian pizzas when I go abroad It isn't the case for this little pizzeria I recommend you to ask pizza without Gouda cheese but only with mozzarella Highly recommended

A good place in Eheŕenfeld. They're Italian but not the best... With too much German style 😉 take a Schädelbräu and enjoy the best beer from Eheŕenfeld

First of all, good for me as Italian not speaking German, you get welcomed with a smile and you can speak Italian.... There is a good choice of pizzas, service is fast and pizza is good. The atmosphere is very relaxed, most drink their beers at the bottle, the chit chat around and the small and cozy place made me... More

I spent the day exploring Cologne and had a hankering for good Italian food. Based on the positive reviews for Pizzeria Piccola, I figured it was worth a shot to leave the altstadt and give this place a try. I couldn't have been more impressed with the food! Delicious thin crust pizza that was both chewy and crunchy at the... More
