Frankfurt is a bit of a dump, and one our least favourite destinations in the entire world. There is absolutely Zero chance of London bankers wanting to move there! However, we still have to go there on business, and when we do, La Contessa gets to serve us dinner. Its ambiance and menu are well above average for the city... More

Nice italian neighborhood restaurant that is close to the Frankfurt fair. We go there often and the food is always great. Very family friendly (even though the place is more frequented by business people). In the summer they have a nice terrace.

This is ideal for business groups visiting the nearby Messe exhibition area. Good food and friendly service. I recommend that you make a reservation in advance, as it was very busy when we visited.

We arrived without reservation on Tuesday evening for 11 persons, there was space for us and it did not seem too busy but the service was slow. However the food was very nice and very hot, and the price was reasonable, short walk from Marriott hotel and exhibition centre.

This place is not far from the Messe Frankfurt and was great for a quiet dinner with cystomers/friends. The food was good and the service was adequate.

The food was well prepared and presented. The waiters had a good knowledge of the menu and the wine list. The wine was quite expensive when compared to other restaurants.

The staff were very nice and beer was good. I had a mozzarella, tomato and spinach starter which was huge for a starter and tasted nice. The main was disappointing! The rice had pungent herbs added which didn't blend with the fish and asparagus. The fish was ok but, parts of it tasted raw. The pizza dishes looked respectable and... More

We were staying at the Marriott near by and they recommended this place for Italian. We were not disappointed! We had Penne with Italian sausage and a pizza. Both were excellent! Staff were very nice!

It was my second visit to this restaurant and both were equally good. I had to take Saltimbocca alla Romana again, as on my first visit it was delicious. Having been to Italy countless times I have to say that this restaurant is as authentic as they get and the value for money is excellent.
