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

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.
