Very high end Italian Restaurant. Not cheap at all. But the service and food are very good. We had wine by the bottle, so that off course increases the pricing. It is used for business lunch meetings a lot so be sure to make a reservation before you head there.
I loved the tiramisu of course and we chose a German Riesling for the wine. Anyone that appreciates great ambiance and good food in a quiet calm environment, this is definitely your place!

The restaurant is within convenient walking distance of the DeutschePost tower. A pleasant two or three course set lunch can be enjoyed on the outside patio in the spring and summer.

On a recent visit, I enjoyed a fresh green salad and a nicely prepared cod entree with vegetables and potatoes.

The menu and the food are not spectacular but perfectly acceptable for lunch. Service attentive and friendly.

Was invited here recently by a client. I'm glad he was paying. Food was excellent though portions on the small side: all very nouvelle cuisine, ie large white plates and small portions. My soup was excellent though there was far too little of it. Starters were around €15.00 and mains in the mid to high 20s. Didn't see the wine list so can't comment on prices or offering. Staff were friendly and multilingual. Whole place is a little bit formal and the atmosphere makes you want to speak in hushed tones. In a nutshell not for everyone but good if that's what you like.

After reading good reviews in the Bonn Restaurant Guide, we decided to try out this restaurant. It is located in a villa near the Post Tower and the River Rhine, but is certainly not in a touristy area. We were there on a Saturday evening and, since it was beautiful weather, we opted for a table on the terrace overlooking a nice garden. Although the terrace and some of the tables inside were full, the waiters had everything under control and we were served very professionally.
There was an à la carte and an evening menu which sounded delicious but was more than we wanted to eat. We noticed that the menu included a lot of seasonal produce which is exactly what we prefer. Our starters were delicious (carpaccio and a summer salad with an excellent sauce).We both chose veal steaks on a bed of porcini mushrooms for our main course. The porcini were fantastic and the steaks melt-in-the-mouth tender – a wonderfully light summer meal.
The wine list was good. The glass of prosecco we had as an aperitif was fresh and nicely chilled. We did not eat dessert but simply finished our meal with an espresso. When we asked for the bill we were offered a glass of champagne on the house as we had mentioned it was our wedding anniversary when making the reservation. Since we were there for the very first time, we found this an extremely nice gesture.
We had a very enjoyable evening. The food was excellent and freshly prepared, the service totally professional. We will certainly be back.
