I had a lot of italian food outside of Italy. My thought is the same! All of them are average and mediocre. In this restaurant I felt the same before I even ordered my food. I ordered an asparagus risotto and it was bad, so I ordered pizza and it was ok. Nothing really to remember from this restaurant. Its... More

This is a very large and thus rather noisy pizza and pasta joint. There is the usual range of pizza options and various choices /adaptations for vegetarians and vegans. Service was good and the price reasonable. Nothing special but perfectly acceptable if hungry.

Good Italian food in a nicely laid out clean location close to the pedestrian zone. The pasta dishes were very good and the appetizers exceptional. The staff was a little on the less then friendly side, but the food more than made up for their shortfall.

Located next to a bombed-out court yard,, this restaurant has both indoor and outside seating. I enjoyed the spargel which was served without potatoes--very un-German--and the tiramisu.

I went here several times, when i lived in Kassel. This Restaurant not far from the city centre called Königsplatz and even very close to the beautiful riverside area of the Fulda on the other side gives you an italian feeling like nowhere else in this area. Gently background music surrounded by very obliging service personal lets the right atmosphere... More

The restaurant is located un a former convent, as the name suggests. It has an expansive courtyard converted into outdoor dining. The servings are rather large, so don't go overboard when ordering. I found the prices very reasonable and the service to be average. Although I think they are a tad understaffed but you will hardly notice if you are... More
