This restaurant is out of the hub so often very quite but by far after year of eating elsewhere in Cologne we go here. Unbelievable prices for the best food in Cologne. The salads are fresh and great, the seafood amazing. Order the "Gambas" (big prawns) cooked on the side in oil and garlic, then the spaghetti "aglio olio" which... More

Very nice option for quiet lunch, this place is tucked away in a small alley nearby Heumarkt. Efficient friendly service, good quality food. Set menus available at lunchtime (soup/salad, main course and dessert/coffee).

Friendly waiters, some even spoke dutch. We ordered bruschetti, the calamari salad and tapa platter as starter. Bruschetti weren't good, they lacked flavour, bread wasn't toasted. This was just some pieces of bread with a few tomatoes on it. This should be toasted, rubbed with garlic, put some olio and salt on it... Calamari was very good, perfectly seasoned, great... More

We ordered gin and tonic and shrimps for starters. They were tasty and fried properly, but the pepper was too hot. Bread wasn't good. The pork tenderloin was perfect and so was the green pepper sauce. We ordered no desserts nor coffee. The bill totaled 80 euros, not bad if compared to France and Italy, but more expensive than you'd... More

The restaurant is situated in a basement of a historical building. That is it. The food is mediocre. Pizza with French fries. As everywhere else and not the best.

Nice Italian restaurant with traditional dishes, based on pure and original ingredients. The atmosphere is pleasant, the waiters a bit formal and the prices very reasonable.

We were recommended by our hotel to this restaurant but when we arrived they were full. We booked for the next evening and were asked to arrive early as they were catering for 60. This never really materialised so we were a bit put off by this. The food was good although the portions were not that large. It may... More

The first thing to say about this place is that it is a bit hidden up an alley. But it is quite well signed so it shouldn't be too hard to find. I'd make the effort. In fact I did make the effort and will definitely do so again. We took a risk in going without a reservation and were... More

Came here with friends based on the recommendations here in trip advisor. The food is very good, we all enjoyed it. However, the service is so slow!! It took about 15 minutes to get our menus, and then another 15 to take our order. Time waiting for food orders was long as well. The restaurant was half empty, so no... More
