“A gem!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

The restaurant has an incredible atmosphere, very chic. You order from the front and then find a table. The food is all made to order, but the wait isn't long. The food is AMAZING. The pizzas are hearth-cooked and the pastas devine (my associate commented that it was the best bolognese he'd ever had). The best part though - the price. Our meal was only 17€ with two entrees and drinks.

“Best thing about Cologne!”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

We work at The Messe in Cologne (Exhibition Halls to English speakers).
Generally we stay in Mulheim, but our usual accommodation was all booked up so we tried Park Inn.. Trip Advisor recommended this place and WOW! Why would we choose to eat anywhere else?

Very casual with a great atmosphere, English speaking staff who are more than happy to explain everything and of course great food, well presented.

Order the Antipasti and see how you go.. It's fantastic..a work of art. For 9€ish a true bargain.
Pizzas are sublime and at 6-7€ another bargain. Beer at 2€ a bottle and Wine at 20€ per bottle, this is a great night out . Eat and drink like a King for <20€

The lads from Bold Display (bold.co.uk) will return, for sure, again and again.

Many thanks.

“Fantastic pizza and pastas!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

So glad we tried Pizzeria Piccola. The pizza and housemade pastas were delicious, and so affordable (dinner for 2 with wine = around €30). All the ingredients tasted fresh. The restaurant is very easy to find from the Piusstraat (line 3 or 4) U-bahn stop, just a short ride (or long walk) from the Dom area. A few tables outside (no great view) with the majority inside. When you arrive you can seat yourself, but then go to the counter to order (no table service). Wholeheartedly recommended-- I hope to eat here again! Thank you for a wonderful meal on the last night of our vacation.
