We ate here twice during our two week stay in Frankfurt and had the same pork dish each time because it was so good the first time. I had some pork medallions without sauce as I follow a gluten free diet. They were quite flexible so far as vegetables go as I cannot eat potatoes. I asked the waiter if... More

There is always a thin line between being open with your costumer or just not caring what you say. Food is nice, I ate here before and the food was good. Team is mostly Italian and they keep the level but patient isn't their stronger side... We're use to it from Italy , but seriously when you ask the waiter... More

We were a group of five and reserved in advance to ensure we got a table. The waiter was welcoming but after that service was not very good. Two of us ordered starters - one was sent back because it was not correct and my minestrone soup was lukewarm and not very good. From arrival we waited for an hour... More

Was invited to have a dinner. Slightly confusing experience. Tuesday night. Supposed not to be too busy. Somehow the staff managed to make it busy. Ok. Antipasti, risotto, fish, tuna were perfect. Meat and truffel pasta need to improve. We were a group of 10. Most of us really happy. Most likely would go again.

I am originally a New Yorker, but now reside in Germany. If you know New Yorkers, we are very convinced our pizza is the best in the world. Unlike other New Yorkers, however, I have traveled all over the world, and in most countries I have also tried their pizza. OK, not every NY pizza is the best, but a... More

We were staying at the Westin and thus was recommended as a good nearby pizza. I asked the waiter if he was featured in a photo on the wall and he said no, it was from 1971. I said that I was in Ffm then and always went to Pizza Petro in Sachsenhausen and he said that the photo was... More

I don't get the fuss, this place comes highly recommended, the pizza is average, pasta so so. And the secundi platti forget about it.. Terrible open wines.....Busy with the locals though, maybe because its fairly priced, but it's nothing to get excited about

Colleague invited me to this restaurant. When we arrived I was quite skeptical as from outside it looked more like a cheap, old fashion Italian bistro in Germany i.e. not good. Now, the ambience in this case is a wrong indication of what food you can expect. As always I have asked for staff reco and ended up with octopus... More
