Attentive staff; good pizza, extremely cozy

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

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.
