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

We were in Köln just for 1 day and we walked all the way there just because all the people rating this restaurant can't possibly be wrong about how good the food in this place is. And they are ! We had the most amazing food (shrimp risotto and caneloni) for the best price ever. Pizzeria Piccola L'Originale for n#1... More

We came here as a second option due to some last minute eviction from a Steakhouse we were looking fwd to eat. This was even better than we hoped! Our toddler fell asleep in the car while on our way, so we opted to order take out. My husband had a hard time picking which pizza to order so he... More

We went to Piccola pizzeria yesterday and had the most amazing meal there. It is not the typical restaurant, for instance, you make your orders on the counter and are responsible for picking up your food and bevarages. But the quality of the foo makes up for all of that! The pizza is delicious! Don't worry if you don't speak... More

What a place, just remember its about the food not the location. I was out with customers so when I walked in a was little disappointed when they pointed us to sit on the end of another table rather than our own table. We nearly walked out as it just looked like a canteen but staying was the best decision... More
