We found this restaurant by accident whilst staying at the Hotel Cristall, very close by. Very small, reminiscent of home but the walls are hung with mirrors so looks bigger than it is. Lovely intimate atmosphere and we chatted with other diners. The Italian food was excellent, not cheap but beautifully served and just the right amount. Very classy place all round. Waiters spoke good English and were friendly but discreet. Wish it were closer instead of a 3hr train ride!

I was just looking for a nice restaurant at Marzellenstraße and ended up entering Da Damiano. Thank the gods!
Everything was just great. Very nice atmosphere, cool decoration and AMAZING food.
Try the baby calamaris as entrée, delicious. And the tiramisu was among the 3 best I've ever had... How I wish I lived nearby Da Damiano, so that I could go there from time to time...
Staff is great as well.
Only negative point is that inside the restaurant the menu was written on a mirror (very cool, but hard to read from my table).
Anyway, a place not to be missed by gourmets.

It was more expensive than its equivalent in London would be - but we were on hols and liked the fact it was a short walk from the hotel and that the concierge recommended it. The food was very good, fresh and seasonal, the staff were extremely helpful and all in all - we had a lovely family celebration.

While I'm not a big fan of german food, I admit they make the best sausages and beer in the world. But after a few days, you're ready for something else. Considering that GErmany is filled with Italian imigrants and italian restaurants, there are many great options, and this is certainly one of them. Of course it helps to speak to them in italian, but you'll definitely eat well here. They had great antipasti, pasta with truffles and excellent desserts. Also good wines by the glass as well.

Next door to Luciano's, but not as atmospheric. Excellent food, but staff seemed a little disinterested.
