This lovely place is located just outside the city center and away from the tourist traps. We walked there over the old city walls and back over the normal road They serve decent Italian food, nothing extraordinary but we enjoyed it

Great restaurant...very atmospheric! Beautiful dinning room....felt like you were in a wine cave. The owner was very friendly to us and shared some stories. I had the veggie pizza with added arugula...delicious. Our waitress was top notch and the wine superb.

Quality, authentic Italian food! Owned by two brothers! Everything on the menu is outstanding and has amazing flavors! They have an English menu and have staff that speaks English as well. The restaurant is inside a wine cellar that used to belong to the Castle once upon a time. They did a wonderful job with the interior to reflect the... More

If you've a craving for Italian food in Cochem, then Castello will do. Nothing was hard to swallow. Yet, nothing deserves special mention. An earlier review mentioned that the pasta tasted like it came out of a can. . I wouldn't go as far as to say this but they did use canned peas in their tagliatelle in tomato cream..... More

After a week in the Cochem area a change from the German cuisine was welcome. We had a pizza here and it was ok, not the best ever but certainly not bad.

Wide menu with authentic Italian dishes - not just pizzas! Good value for money. Younger waiting staff a bit on the slow side but if you're not in a hurry it is worth a visit. Good atmosphere - low barrel vaulted ceiling with old farm implements on the walls; built into the rock on which Cochem castle stands.

Very good food. The service was little bit chaotic, but people are friendly there (most of them Italians). The Restaurant looks really nice and interesting inside.

Excellent Service and Italian food including fish options. The first night we couldn't get in as we had no reservation but we got in on the second try and it was worth it. Very nice and helpful waiter and the food and wine selection was excellent. A good option when the standard German restaurant fare of meat and potatoes starts... More

The manager of our hotel suggested this place. I love Italian food, and I think I went in with expectations a little high. The spaghetti was a little dry, but still OK. My wife had their lasagna which was very runny. Great flavor, but quite a bit different than what we have experienced. Our server was pleasant and charming, but... More
