“Great tasting fresh pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Hot is a small restaurant in a nice part of Duesseldorf. It is cosy with a great atmosphere. The fresh pasta is simply superb. Would recommend and will return regularly

“Best Pizza and Pasta in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

It's on the other side of the Rhine river but is was absolutely worth to catch a taxi to get us to that somewhat hidden place. It's totally off the beaten tourist tracks. In fact it's one of the best italian pizzerias we have been to in Germany. Food is nothing else but pizza and pasta. But all of that in a superbe quality and taste. Try Taglierini a la Hot if you are into curry and fancy a style of pasta sauce that you don't find every day. Pizzas are all good, big in size and thin as they should be.The best at this place though is the atmosphere. Its a small, intimate and cheerfull place. You can see the stuff working in the open kitchen. The music is not Italian Eros Ramazotti classics but more contemporary lounge sounds. It is packed with locals every day and its likely that you will have to wait for 10 minutes even on weekdays. But it's well worth it. As the place is quite small, the tables stand close to each other - so it's very likely that you will find yourselfes making contact with your neighbours quickly. But thats all part of the fun. Go there - you wont be disappointed

“Good place for pasta and pizza fans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2010

Hot La Cucina is our faborite place for Italian food in Duesseldorf. The pasta with usually creamy sauce and lots of spices is delicious. But also the pizza (to go if you like) is a sensation - crispy and tasty. This place is always busy so make a reservation to be on the safe side. Staff is friendly and fast. The bostro style restaurand is quite small so be prepared to get packed together with other guests on tiny tables - but that's part of the deal and fun.
