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

This small neighbourhood Italian restaurant is fabulous. Freshly made, delicious food - pasta, pizza, risottos, salads. Friendly staff, worth finding. I visit Köln frequently, and I am delighted to have found this restaurant. I had a black truffle risotto, that was expertly prepared.

This is a small... Of course... Place. But so great in many meanings, so i shouldn't review it so positively, as i still want, as my friends do... Want to get a table. Meals are great and pizzas are best in Koeln, good choice of wines... Could have some more french ones... The ambience is not as nice as the... More
