An Italian treat in Germany

Wide menu with authentic Italian dishes - not just pizzas! Good value for money. Younger waiting staff a bit on the slow side but if you're not in a hurry it is worth a visit. Good atmosphere - low barrel vaulted ceiling with old farm implements on the walls; built into the rock on which Cochem... read more

After a week in the Cochem area a change from the German cuisine was welcome. We had a pizza here and it was ok, not the best ever but certainly not bad.

Very good food. The service was little bit chaotic, but people are friendly there (most of them Italians). The Restaurant looks really nice and interesting inside.

Excellent Service and Italian food including fish options. The first night we couldn't get in as we had no reservation but we got in on the second try and it was worth it. Very nice and helpful waiter and the food and wine selection was excellent. A good option when the standard German restaurant fare of meat and potatoes starts... More

The manager of our hotel suggested this place. I love Italian food, and I think I went in with expectations a little high. The spaghetti was a little dry, but still OK. My wife had their lasagna which was very runny. Great flavor, but quite a bit different than what we have experienced. Our server was pleasant and charming, but... More

We went expecting good Italian food but found the opposite. The lasagne tasted like chef boyardee and the seafood pasta was nothing special nor tasty. The wine was good and the bread with their special butter were the only good things. One of our worst meals in Germany.

I booked here after reading some good reviews on Trip Advisor and I feel quite let down after tonight's visit. My husband and I only had 4 days in Cochem, so I wanted our meals to be special. We were met inside by an older man ( maybe the owner- he didn't introduce himself, so we don't know!) and all... More

Very nice restaurant with good food and excellent vine selection. Lots of the Cochem and surrounding history is found inside the restaurant. Kind and hard working staff. I will definitely go there again.

A very nice Italian authentic place, in the city center but away from the touristy spots on the promenade. The owner who is Italian but speaks good English is very friendly and helpful. The food is very good and the place is very much recommend.
