The location is good, staff is friendly and the portions good, just missing the seasoning. For the price one would expect creme in the creme sauce. I guess this may be as good as it gets this close to the tourist autobahn. The food does...More

An expensive meal for average good. Service was hit and miss. My pasta dish was dry, lacking sauce. Comments of other diners at our table made comment food was very average. Wouldn't recommend.

It was very crowded but we found a table on the street and shared a few pizzas, all of which were really good. The seafood one with octopus was exceptional, as was another with eggplant. Washed down with pinto grigio, great. Not exactly German food...More

At one end of Marktplatz, our family found this Italian restaurant after eating German food for a few days and needed a break. Nice tables outside to people watch. We had the gnocchi, spaghetti with meat sauce and the cannelloni. All the food was good....More

There are a few mixed reviews on this page, but I had a fantastic lunch here! I wandered in sopping wet (because it was raining, not because I'd gone for an impromptu swim or something) and unable to speak German and carrying a large backpack....More

Awful restaurant. Ordered cannelloni, was brought 'special with a surprise'. Turned out to be a lump of reheated veggie lasagne with some penne and ravioli on top. Sent it back and asked for conventional lasagne. It arrived scorching hot on the outside and stone cold...More

We got there for lunch: Service was not quick, menus were not written in correct Italian, pizza was not cooked enough, pasta was just good enough, tomato sauce could have been better. For the same price I have had better food, and one which is...More
