We had a nice dinner here the other day. We enjoyed bruschettas as a compliment from the chef, beef tartar and halibut fish. Deserts are worth mentioning as well. Warm chocolate cake is heavenly tasty, as well as tiramisu. But be aware: by the end of the evening they sometimes run out of sweets. The only downside to this great... More

If you want to go back to the same restaurant in one week that is certainly a clear indication for a great restaurant. La Vecchia Banca is a beautiful classical Italian restaurant with rich decoration and tall ceilings. The walls were decorated with very attractive modern art. The personnel is very patient and friendly. If you get very tasteful fish... More

A type of restaurant where even an Italian can be satisfied. The food is not too much adapted to the local taste (Germany), that's why I like it. Good food, excellent wine excellent service. A place to go.

I visited all Italian places in Bad Homburg. This is the best one IMHO. Staff was really friendly and has good English. Will go revisit them tonight 😄

The restaurant is a typical Bad Homburg Italian one. The location is excellent, nearby all major hotels in the city. Food is good and there is a large selection of wines, but you need to know what wine to choose. When it's crowded (and this happens many times) the service becomes slow, because there is only a few people that... More

The restaurant has a very nice ambiance. The welcoming already is relatively cold almost unfriendly. It takes quite a while until you get the menus and then again a while until your order is taken. For the wine list you have to ask separately as it is not offered from the beginning. Prices on the menu are above average. We... More

Travelling alone on business is horrible at meal times. However this place was welcoming and the food and drink quite excellent. Nice outside tables and a grand interior. Cooking done with obvious care and only mid priced which is cheap for an Englander abroad. Please open a branch in the UK

This restaurant obviously likes to think that it's really high quality, and in some ways it is - the food was really good and beautifully presented, and the wine list is enormous. However, there are some real let-downs. The service was very slow - to be fair, that is the Italian way and they did warn us - but it... More

Was this really a bank? In the basement, next to the washroom there is this huge old safe. Dining area is nice, elegant, classy. Selection is not enormous, and for lunch they have three menus at acceptable prices. The soup was lukewarm, the meat (veal) rather small, flat and chewy. Service was nice and fast. Not sure how they got... More
