“True Italian food without a fuzz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

This feels like a true Italian family restaurant. The pasta is home made and its the type of small neighborhood restaurant that wouldn't dream to make their tomato sauce any other way than with fresh tomatoes from scratch. It's far from fancy but the food is simply fresh and great tasting and the service feels like you are eating in an Italian family's kitchen. The location is convenient, just at the lower part of Oederweg in the Nordend of Central Frankfurt. Finally, a restaurant that has been around for 33 years as Locanda Della Torre has been, simply must be good!

“Small restaurant; average quality.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

This is a rather small restaurant with small tables. I can imagine that it will be very cramped when full. The usual variety of dishes for Italian restaurants although most other guests seem to have taken the pizza or pasta. For a main course with meat you have to pay from 16 € upwards. I had the special of the day which is veal with porcinni at 36 €. It was disappointing, especially as the porcinni tasted nothing. I did not have any dessert this time as it was quite ordinary the last time. All in all, not really good value for the money.
