“Crappy food, crappy wine, and crappy attitude”
Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

Contrary to other reviews that led me choose this place, the house wine was terrible. The Margharita pizza was supposed to be topped with Basil. It had a single basil leaf on the entire pizza. Pitiful.
The pizza was bland and the dough was chewy. Not light and crispy like an authentic pizza. The waiter - literally - refused to bring me crushed red pepper, stating that they "had none." He did bring me a mixture of oil and crushed red pepper, though, indicating that it was "homemade."

FROM WHAT? I thought you had no crushed red pepper in the house! When I requested the red pepper 'dry', he stood his ground-refusing it again.

So...I'm summary: Food sux...wine sux...attitude sux...

Go somewhere else!

I arrived alone at about 9pm. The restaurant was quite busy, but they found me a table quickly and a menu with english translation. The service was quick and attentive and oh my lord.... the food was great. Would definately recommend

“Late Night Pizza Perfect!”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

It was late, they were open and happy to see me. They poured excellent wine and made a fantastic, simple pizza. Good service, upscale setting, very laid back, perfect for "I just arrived, it's late and I'm hungry."

“Superb italian food”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

I have been there already several times, and each time, the food is perfect. Probably the best italian food I have found so far in Düsseldorf. The service is not very quick but people is very nice in this restaurant. An intersting information is also the fact that you can get your carpark ticket stamped so that it is free of charge.
