Great pasta!

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

O now know, its right next to the Piusstr metro station ( on lines 3 or 4) I nearly made the mistake of going to the Pizza Piccola, like the other writer mentioned , which is chain. It's typical italian basic, pizzeria, simply good pizzas at 8 euros. We had a pizza and a Pasta Al Forno, both great. Including... More

A dozen of different pizzas, between only 7 and 9 €. You finally got a huge but delicious pizza. Great garlic and spicy sauces. As always, great Kölsch.

While on a Rhine river cruise we got a craving for some red sauce while touring Cologne, Germany. The highly recommended L'Assaggio was closed so we opted for Pizzeria Piccola L'originale. It was about a 4km taxi ride from the river dock but well worth the ride.( Our taxi driver came back for us after dinner and got take-out! Smart... More

Visited this restaurant twice in four days as it was so good in December 13. Couldn't believe how cheap it was to be honest and the quality was excellent. Knew it was going to be good when we walked through the door and it was full on a Tuesday night. If I return to Cologne I will return to this... More
