Great fare. Perfect pasta. Fantastic veal dish. Topped off with great service assisting with wine and grappa selection. There are many great Italian restaurants in Düsseldorf, and if you are in Oberkassel/Niederkassel area of the city, try La Contessa.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a coworker. Even though I made my online reservations for the wrong time, the host quickly found a great table by the window for our party of five. The pasta (truffle) and seafood was delicious (and very filling), the wine was perfectly matched to our meal and the dessert, tiramisu, was one of... More

We sometimes go here with clients for lunch break and so far it has always been a good choice. The food tastes good and the service was attentive. It's a pretty small Restaurant and they really tried to put as much tables as possible in it, maybe a little too many.

Had a nice fish platter during a business meeting in Düsseldorf. Pasta with shrimps looks also nice. Service was friendly and quick.

I went to La Contessa two times during my stay in Dusseldorf. Both times I had a great time with my family and our friends there. The atmosphere is very pleasant and relaxed. The second time we were there, so it happened, they had live smooth jazz music which complemented our time with friends. The music wasn't loud and didn't... More

Food here was not bad - steak was really quite nice. Service was a bit ropey - food seemed to arrive before we had been offered drinks. Pleasant atmosphere. Given an average rating as I thought it was, well, average.

I travel to Dusseldorf on business from time to time and this was a very good Italian restuarant - both the food and atmosphere were superb. Very tasty food and I what I wanted was not actually on the menu so the chef made a pasta main course according the the ingredients I asked for - very impressed and it... More
