Sorry to read so many good reviews with no reason. At least, as far as I tried. I had risotto porcini (half sent back, without any question from the waitress) and a small pizza . Really, sorry to leave this kind of review, but they have no idea how to prepare Italian cousin. You may like it, it's fine by... More

Good Pizza, Nice ambience.. I have been there for lunch mostly when it is self service. The staff is friendly and the food is quite good.. I personally like their pasta's more than the Pizzas.

Great pizza, most of the staff was Italian which is cool. The pizza tasted just like in Italy and the prices were more than reasonable. I recommend!

This place was quite easy to find, it had seating outside which was nice on a warm summers evening.

Pasta was superb too and... More

We got a great homemade pasta and a pizza. Great friendly staff. Great price 25 euro for both food and one beer and one glass of wine. We recommend it.

Pass this place pretty often and it always seems to be packed during dinner. Drop by for brunch. Pretty nice pasta. Waiter was attentive. But I couldn't finish the huge portion. Wish I did. Read many reviews on the pizza, will be back very soon.

I am Italian and I am always disappointed as I never find real Italian pizzas when I go abroad It isn't the case for this little pizzeria I recommend you to ask pizza without Gouda cheese but only with mozzarella Highly recommended

A good place in Eheŕenfeld. They're Italian but not the best... With too much German style 😉 take a Schädelbräu and enjoy the best beer from Eheŕenfeld
