"Cologne's chic gourmet set love meeting at the Trattoria Enoteca for lively lunches, chatty catch-ups and romantic tables for two. Tucked away inside the stately Grand Hotel Schloss Bensberg, the restaurant and its moreish Mediterranean menu attracts a well-coiffed international crowd and businessy types. Relaxed and homely – the interior at Trattoria Enoteca has lemon walls hand-painted with vines, ruby red curtains and potted palms, and the hearty Italian-led menu includes favourites such as the hand-tapped beef carpaccio with spinach salad, citrus olive oil, old balsamic and Parmesan cheese; the Amalfi lemon risotto; and the ragoût of organic lamb shoulder with egg, Parmesan and homemade oricchette noodles.

Nice atmosphere, but the food was medium quality. To much marketing bla, bla in the menu. They did not deliver high quality food, too much oil, cheese, beef had a lot of fat. We complaint, but no serious feedback.

2 grissini on the table, the interpretation of Italian dishes despicable, portions are poor and far to fulfill expectations in terms of cuisine and price. The "risotto" a boiled rice, the carciofo, hardly to be seen in your plate, is more a cucumber sauce that comes with it, a normal prosciutto crudo becomes a Modena prosciutto crudo (since when Modena...

This trattoria is a very good Italian restaurant. Of course, the location of that restaurant in the beautiful hotel Schloss Bensberg is already nice, but then next door to the best restaurant of Germany makes it for the chef of this restaurant a challenge to perform. But do not worry, you will not be disappointed when visiting this restaurant. We... More

Have visited the restaurant a few times (when staying at the hotel). On each occasion, the food was very good and well-presented by knowledgeable staff. Next to à la carte, there is a choice of two menus: classical Italian and a creative interpretation of classics. Personal favourites are the "classic" fish soup from Livorno and the "classic" 60h slow-cooked beef.... More

Service left something to be desired, food was ok but nothing special. For the price paid I expected a lot more, they need to either lift their game or lower their prices. Will not return.

I do not like to go to a restaurant and feel like they are rushing us to leave. Especially at these prices. We ate here because the other two famous restaurants in the area were not open on Mondays. The food was average, I have never looked at my watch in a fine dining restaurant to see how long it... More
