Just before closing, we opt for the pizza and lasagna. Waiter warn us, that pizza would be small. We didn't mind. Lasagna come at the same time, unfortunately cold inside. We asked to heat it up. The second time lasagna come after long waiting time(we...tought they will bring new one) like vulcano, smaller and burned at the edge. The chef didnt bother to come out and we suggest him to check the microwave settings properly.We got offered 2 shots of limoncello at the end by waiter. Avoid this place if you can.More

It’s a simple restaurant located in Trier’s old town. The service is quick and food ok, they are not going easy on salt though :-)

My hotel was literally around the corner and I called to order a pizza for takeaway. The phone order was no problem and the pizza was ready in about 25 minutes. Pizza was good but I don't think there was any mozzarella cheese. I asked...for a napkin but they unfortunately did not have any plastic forks or knives.More

In despite of being Saturday at 13H10, and the restaurant being full, we just waited about 5" until we had a free table. The attention given to customers is Excellent, as well as food quality and presentation. Our lunch was served in 25',demonstrating that the...team is Focused on a good service.More

In despite of visiting Trier on regular basis, this was the first tine in this pizzeria. It offers a good service, has a professional staff and the food is of very good quality and well presented. Is located within a 3' walk from the city...centre. This restaurant receives the DOC award since 2013.More

I happened on the Pizzeria Fornelli by chance and enjoyed it so much I went back the following night. This is a very good, no nonsense Italian restaurant that serves up excellent Italian food in decent but not glamourous surroundings. The staff are very efficient...and pleasant and ensure that the place runs smoothly and diners are looked after. The antepasti we had was super and fresh; pizzas and pasta are both excellent. The limoncello digestif was a welcome addition at the end of the meal. Well worth a visit but always try and book ahead.More

Food was edible, the best was the melon and prosciutto. The rest was just ok. The thing that made it not good was to many flies. It made it difficult to eat.

There are a few Italian restaurants around this part of Trier and of the two we tried - this is the only one that can be recommended. It’s located at the top of a staircase and we were only alerted to its presence by the...blackboard outside, which told us that today’s special was pasta with Porcini. Porcini are my wife’s “catnip”, so I had little choice. The room itself is very compact but we never felt cramped. It was a mixture of Italian charm and German “gemutlichkeit”. From the menu I had a good octopus carpaccio, which would have been even better had the deliciously thin-sliced octopus, not been buried under a layer of salad - albeit very good fresh salad. My wife had her usual Caprese salad with buffalo Mozzarella, which she enjoyed - commenting on the quality ingredients. As with my octopus, the “stars” of the Caprese were buried under very non-Caprese salad items. Perhaps it’s how the locals like it? For the mains, I had a very good seafood spaghetti which had lots of seafood but above all, a really delicious, tomato-based, seafood sauce - piquant and rich. A minor complaint, the pasta was a trifle overcooked for my taste but again, maybe not for the regular customers. My wife’s tagliatelle with “steinpilze” was also very good, with lots of lovely fungus dressing the pasta. With the meal we had a bottle of Primitivo di Manduria from Varvaglione, the Papale Linea D’Oro which was simply outstanding. The excellent waiter offered to chill it for us, fearing it would be a little too warm but he need not have worried - it was perfect. In fact I was so impressed that I’m looking to order some for home consumption, now I’m back in the UK. This little Italian won over our hearts and stomachs. It’s a very friendly, totally unpretentious place, where students can enjoy pizza, while others can enjoy a very good, pizza-less lunch. Just around the corner is another “Italian” which in comparison, wasn’t even in the same league. This is the place to go - make no mistake.More

I️ chose the pick your own pasta and sauce option: spinach ravioli with a mushroom cream sauce. It was excellent. Great wine too. I was looking for German food but could find anything open. I’m glad I️ stumbled upon this gem. The staff knows enough...English to help if you need. I know a little German and spoke with one of the other waiters briefly and he was very sweet as well.More
