Nice food, but crappy service

Rather disappointing to have one or two waiters ruin your business. If management would be a little bit more engaged with staff training and conduct, that place would get 5 stars easily. As it stands it doesnt deserve 4 - but the food was great! Details: Arrived on a hot summer evening, and... read more

Great location in the historic centre of Mainz, in summer months you can enjoy the large covered terrace. The choice and quality of food is wondeful, service is swift and great selection of exceptional wines. This is not a typical mass market Italian, they care about what they offer their clients

Good quality, good service are consistent. There are the classic Italian dishes as well as a seasonal menu for the taste adventurous. Solid choice for a positive business dinner, but also for a date or family dinner. Prices are fair and mid range. Make a reservation to be safe.

Really good pizza and pasta - food is 5 stars. They were able to accommodate us spontaneously which was great, but unfortunately we waited for over one hour -> minus one star = four well deserved stars

Traveled to Mainz many times for business, this was our favorite restaurant for Italian food. The atmosphere is variable: when its warm the outside seating area is great. In the colder months, the upstairs is typical European cafe and the basement is more historically quaint. The food is the star of this restaurant. We have ordered everything from appetizers, salads,... More

started with Antipasti, and then we had pizza and freshly made pasta. all very tasty also the matching wine to go with it. Our table was in the cellar, and due the high / curved ceiling a little bit too noisy for my liking - restaurant was busy. nevertheless I would recommend the place!

i live in Ireland but have visited Mainz on 3 separate occasions. Each time I have dined in this restaurant. It is run by Italians and the food is authentic and really really good. The prices are average, the wine list comprehensive. However the staff are not your usual friendly relaxed Italians. They rush you through, in fairness the place... More

Great food in a nice place. We went for a family lunch over the busy Xmas period and with some food intolerances needed a bit of help which we were willingly given, despite a full house being demanding on the service team. Especially the pumpkin pizza is worth mentioning - a great adaptation of an italian classic... Reservation recommended.

Very typical Italian restaurant but this one is a bit cheaper and more casual than its sister restaurant Il Contro. Most of your choices are pasta, pizza, and salad but they have very creative dishes especially featuring seasonal ingredients. Biggest plus is that they have gluten free pasta for all you people like me with Celiacs. They do sometimes take... More
