And so is the location. We sat inside on a cold winter evening. The service is authentic Italian, friendly, loud... we loved it.

My food wasn't great, especially for the prices we paid.

All in all a nice place.

Gorgeous view and fab service. We weren't originally provided with the wine list and had to request it only after seeing other guests drinking bottles of wine. However we had a lovely evening and my main course of sea bass was truly lovely

When the weather is fine and you're seated outdoors, this place can hardly be beat. The view over the Elbe and the traffic in the port is quite a sight. Indoors it's more like a bus-station.

Food is clearly better than local average but IMHO lost the genuine touch.

This restaurant is perfectly located on the Hamburg Port (Elbe River), which means that while eating you wan witness huge cargo or cruise ships passing by... Amazing experience. The atmoshere is very nice with old style decoration that fits the location well...

The taste experience was average and it is pitty for this place. I had a steak to be on the safe side.. However it was an average taste experience... The asparagus soup was better, but I had more interesting versions tasted the previous days. However, I must admit that the cream brulee at the end was a dream... I have also tried some raviolies from one of my friends and the taste was very good...

The most negative thing was speed..Extremely slow between the courses.. The good part was the Italian somelier.. Very experienced guy, professional and funny at the same time...
