“Good architecture, mediocre food, poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

In the harbor of Duesseldorf you feel you are in Hamburg: exciting architecture wherever you turn your eye. The menu at Bocconcino has unfortunately nothing to excite you: ordinary Italian food, Service is slow and forgetful. Do not take the affugato: it is served as an iced espresso.

“Very Close to Courtyard by Marriott, Hafen.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

A very modern and busy italian restaurant. the cocktails and the food was of a high standard. We enjoyed our evening, the service could be a little friendlier, maybe thats just me though, as it was efficient. moderately expensive.

“Large, stylish restaurant but food fairly average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

This is quite a pleasant place to sit and eat, although it has a huge seating area. It was fairly full at the time and we waited quite a long time between our first and second course. I was disappointed in the dessert - zabaglione - it was too sweet and had a lot of liquid underneath it. I've had better in much less expensive places. I'd go again but it's not top of my list.

“Excellent restaurant, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

This is so far our favourite Italian restaurant in Düsseldorf - the staff is friendly, the food is great. it's a great place to bring business clients.

We had seafood, pizza and pasta. The fish was perfectly cooked. The pasta was excellent and the pizza was very large (larger than the plate) and very thin, just the way it should be.
The kitchen is open so you can see your food being prepared, and the choice of fish sits on ice so you can go and see for yourself it's fresh.

“Welcoming restaurant that takes pride in itself”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

This large restaurant sits in the Median Hafen. From the doorman outside, to the front of house staff and the waiting staff, everyone was extremely welcoming and attentive. The decor and atmosphere make for quite a special smart lounge atmosphere. We were lucky enough to be seated in front of the kitchen so could see much of the preparation.
I enjoyed the whole experience.
