“A really fun but somewhat loud but reasonable italian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Great hospitality and a good meal and a lot of fun. The owner of the restaurant are generally on the floor and helping make you comfortable. When I was there it was really crowded but everyone was having a good time. I had the beef steak too and it was just right.

“very nicely home made food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

the restaurant is a short distance walk from the Marriott if staying there, we arrived very late but they welcomed us in a very nice italian hospitality.
there is only one waitress and she couldn't speak any english but it was not a big issue as food needs no language :)
The main dish was super amazing and they prepared our food as per our request as we did some changes and they were fine with it, I even ordered a Ravioli and it wasn't even on the menu and it was super great.
this place is a perfect place for a real Italian food in Germany and the atmosphere was very nice.

“Very good food, but disappointing service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

The Saltimbocca was delicious, the vegetables were very good and the potatoes were OK. The decor was nothing special, but it was nice. The tablecloths were linen as well as the napkins. A candle on each table added to the atmosphere and the house wine by the glass was nice. The only disappointing thing was the service. It was not personable, or attentive, and it seemed to be the same with everyone. They only had one waiter and an assistant for a Friday night so maybe that was the problem. It is located near the convention center, but they would have to improve their service before I would go back again.

“Very good and a short distance from the Marriott.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Main courses cost about 20 euro but the preparation is excellent. Both the veal scallops with sage butter and the beef steak with cognac pepper sauce were very good. The mozzarella tomato salad and the vegetable soup with truffles were also very good and cost under 10 euros each. They have a covered outside eating area and nice inside area, both with white tablecloths.
