We (3 persons) had a nice lunch which included gnocci, spaghetti bolognese and a combination plate of filled pasta. All the dishes were generous in size and very tasty. The house wine went well with the food. If you are looking for a reasonably priced place for lunch with decent food, you can't go wrong here.

This restaurant is one of the most comfortable and cozy places to eat and relax in Gießen. The pizza always seems to hit the spot and the menu is full of numerous choices. We made reservations which appeared to be unnecessary, but were told that during the Christmas season that a Sunday evening is considered slow. The appetizer of mozzarella,... More

I travel solo, a great deal. I am sensitive that during busy times, many restaurants may not want singles occupying their tables. But when I approached Zum Loewen, there were several vacant tables. Nonetheless, the wait staff made it clear that they did not want to serve me. I stayed because I noticed another patron enjoying the mussels, and they... More

In Giessen on business on Monday during end of Carnivale and wanted traditional German food. However, all the German restaurants were closed. Found this authentic Italian restaurant was open. Had Brushetta and the Three Pasta dish. Both were very good with large pils. Finished with tiramazu and grappo which were also very good. Service was authentic Italian as waiter only... More

I have continual good luck eating Italian in Germany and this beautiful half-timbered building where Goethe ate served an excellent lunch. Service was prompt and fast, though as I watched people around me, I wish I had tried the pizza.
