“Not just truffles”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

I have eaten at this Resturant on many occasions and the food remains consistently high in both standard and quality . The house speciality is the truffle pasta which is best enjoyed as a starter.
The mains are made up of a variety of cut meats the lamb fillet in particular with truffle sauce is exceptional as are the fresh fish on offer. If you have enough room for deserts then I wish you luck ! An extensive wine list is on offer and with knowledgeable staff you will be guided to the right choice - one not to be missed !

“Great Choice in Koln”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Have dined here multiple times and have enjoyed consistently fine meals, with truly attentitive and professional service. From the greeting at the front door and generous olives, bread basket, delicious tomato and chive cream cheese spreads along with complimentary small appetizer sent by the chef, to the excellent quality of the fish, beef, pasta and risotto entrees (including a wide array of dishes with fresh truffles...they have an entire truffle menu that will dazzle) Grande Milano is very well run and will meet and exceed expectations. The soups are particularly good! This is a "go to" place for a great meal in Koln!

“Amazing restaurant, fantastic service!!”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

I visited Grande Milano for the third year in a row this year during a business event but this is the first time I've thought to write a review as naively I didn't think to write a review for a restaurant in another country!

Every year we have had a minimum table of 6, every year we've had some of the best service I've ever experienced and every year we have outstanding food.

A firm favourite of many is the beef carpaccio and the simple truffle spaghetti. No special request is too much trouble, and the staff have gone above and beyond every visit.

The restaurant suprisingly always seems quiet when we visit, and we're so disappointed for the restaurant as it is amazing! The fact that the truffles come out in a special jar and are shaved at the table is just brilliant. Better still that your dinner is revealed from under silver covers simultaneously, it really is such a treat!

Myself and my colleagues wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Simply one of the best!

“Best Carpaccio of beef ever!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Staff very attentive. One waiter was super stressed and this led to the only disappointment of the evening. The food was top class. Harry's carpaccio has to be the best of all time. The tagliatelle in cream sauce with black truffles was divine. A superb selection of Piedmont wines and a Barolo grappa exquisite. Chef/owner looked sad but still performed outstandingly. His wife is a hoot!

“The truffle place of Cologne”
Reviewed February 17, 2011

If you love truffles, then this is your place. They claim to have the biggest truffle consumption of Cologne and I believe them. The food is pricey though (no wonder with truffles). This is a great place for business dinners when you don't have to watch tight budgets. And we did also spot some famous people there once upon a time (Roberto Benigni). The atmosphere of the place is not too much my style though, the place is not very exciting inside. Could need some interior designer again.
