“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

A most pleasant find. On the advice trip advisor reviews we had supper there during our one night in Bonn. We left "comblé".
" Intimate, friendly, excellent food, great wine at decent cost (try the piedmontais 85 % Barbera 15% syrah (sorry I just can't recall the name) discreet service, in a warm atmosphere. Family run but with class. The northern Italian husband cooks, the german wife is Maitre D and the waiter is agem from southern Italy. Youi feel welcome from the moment you set foot inside and by the time we left we felt we were habitual customers. Rare. A 35 Euro wine, 2 starters, main courses and one desert ran us just under 100 Euros
It's about a fifteen minute walk from the Kennedy bridge or Hilton Hotel just to orient you and we would return without any hesitation.

“Very good Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Family run (husband does the kitchen, wife does front of house) in a nice atmosphere, nice tables, excellent and proper Italian cooking. The main waiter, Italian, is first class. Do follow his wine tips!

“best saltimbocca alla romana outside Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2011

I dine out at Caminetto every time I'm in Bonn. It is an excellent restaurant, very professionally run and serving great food. My Saltimbocca alla Romana was as good as you would get anywhere in Italy -- and for just €18 ! The vitello tonnato is also unctuous. The decor is formal, with good linen, decorative plates and scalloped plaster on the walls -- something from the 1970s, I fear -- but there's a small, informal outdoor area which is used when weather permits. Good wine list too and altogether a satisfying experience. And of course, I'll be going back

“Great surprise, an elegant place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2009

I I was just walking at the Römerstrasse from the downtown when I found that interesting small kind Restaurant. The neighbourhood is not so nice, but the place is really great, with elegant furniture and candles. A good place for a romantic date, or even a business meeting. There is maybe just eight to ten tables, and only one waiter, so resertations are recomendded. The environment is peaceful. The price is very good considering that is quite sofisticated. Only the beef options are expensive what is normal here in Germany. I tried a traditional italian ravioli, and it was really very nice.
