Excellent neighborhood Italian

Very pleasant ambience with a menu to suit most tastes, Italian-style. Service was helpful and the wine list offered some great Italians.

Food here was not bad - steak was really quite nice. Service was a bit ropey - food seemed to arrive before we had been offered drinks. Pleasant atmosphere. Given an average rating as I thought it was, well, average.

A nice restaurant in a quieter part of Dusseldorf. The pumpkin ravioli was outstanding! You won't be disappointed if you eat here!

I selected the menu of the day, which included "velvet" like rucola soup, a tender steak with pepper sauce and panacotta for desert.... More
