One of our party who comes to Cologne every year just said this is the best restaurant in The city! I had the tuna tartare with avocado followed by the pasta with black truffles. A perfect meal. Many of our party had the carpaccio followed by Tuscan steak and were very impressed. Also the lamb crown was judged the best... More

With every opportunity visiting Cologne it's a top choice to visit. Very nice environment and an excellent selection of fine Italian dishes. This time I had the truffle spaghetti with a beef fillet accompanied by rucola and parmigiana. Everything perfectly cooked and served. Need to visit!! Definitely recommended.

Without doubt quality dishes 100% Italian with best pasta and best meat. All kinds of wines in a smart Italian environment . Two areas to choose to sit. Central in Cologne. A bit overpriced, you need to pay double than any other Italian but worth it only if you can afford it.

Friendly hospitality from Sr. Damian's and his team. The one standout dish was the Rognons as a starter which set the tone nicely for the evening.

Don't let the location trick you. It's a bit off center in a kind of ugly street near the train station. Step inside and you will forget what you just outside. Nothing so hard as rating food for the price you pay for it in a restaurant. I started with an octopus carpaccio with lemon. Combined with a Sicilian white... More

We arrived at 8:00PM and the kitchen simply bottlenecked: it took us 3 hours to eat three courses, waiting up to 40 minutes between plates. Even though the food is good the appetite was gone after the first hour of waiting. This ruined our dinner.

I was lucky, an italian Business friend invited me here....Italia's hospitality from Damiano and family was heartwarming. That atmosphere plus some very good dishes made this an unforgetable evening. Grazie mille! Place to come back too!

We had selections of red and white wines..both very good if a little pricey between 30-40 euros. The Food, A few of us started with either scallops or Prawns...Both were... More
