This small restaurant cooks up a great Italien pasta dinner for anyone who is looking for a hearty Italian meal. Definitely a recommendation when you're in the area. Staff is friendly, helpful and on point. Great evening! Do note that as the restaurant is small, it's smart to make a reservation. We saw plenty of people being turned away as... More

Wine, food, service = the best in Koln! Owners very friendly. Indoors or outdoors very comfortable. Kitchen small yet, amazingly clean and organized.

We were only in Cologne one night and were told we HAD to go here. We took a taxi from our hotel and waited 30 minutes outside to get a table, and boy are we glad we did. (If you know you are going, call ahead for reservations.) This was the best pasta we have ever had! Absolutely delicious. The... More

The restaurant is located very centrally at the Barbarossa Platz. The restaurant is very tiny with a bunch of small tables. The interior is decorated nicely and tasteful. The menu is not very large but the dishes are not the standard stuff. I had Pici with Aubergines. Pici are big spaghettis. The meal was arranged nicely but the Pici lacked... More

The salad was ready made from nearby grocery store REWE. They charged 10x more for it. The gnocchi was very bland. White bread served was poor quality as well.

Excellent little Italian restaurant situated just next to Barbarossa platz. When we passed by we saw people having tasty plates in front of their noses. And we decided to ask if we could have a spot. I guess we were lucky and can recommend to book a table in advance if you don't want to have a bad surprise. The... More

On a pretty busy street, really accessible by transit. We sat outside because the inside was packed and pretty small. Good pasta, good service. Every pasta dish our table had was enjoyed, I don't think you can go wrong ordering any of them.

We went here based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. I guess you would call it a neighbourhood restaurant as it is a little out of the centre but absolutely worth making the journey, about 25 mins walk or 5-10 minutes in a taxi from the Dom. We went for a late lunch and the... More

My girlfriend and I went here based on previous TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Pasta bar is a very small restaurant (holds roughly 20) but the quality is very high and the atmosphere is good. There was a solid choice of mains and we both went for sea food style pasta dishes, and were both extremely pleased with... More
