“Two times, mixed feelings”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

Known as Mannheims best Italian restaurant this comes as somewhat of a disappointment. It is okay but in now way a great Italian. Solid but not exciting, surprizing or highly original. Good choice of wines though.
Second time with a somewhat larger group the wiating time was unacceptable long. Despite asking we got no explanation or indication of when the food would come. Then the main course came in bits and pieces. Some where finished before the last meal came. Unacceptable but no apology or explanation.
No living up to its image.

“Wow...pricy”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

Walked in, the host is wearing a full tuxedo and there are chandeliers everywhere. Thought okay this is a decent set up for a small whole in-the-wall place. Sat down, again decent spread. Opened the menu and GAAAHHHH. 50 euro for a plate of pasta? No thank you. Looking around at the other plates and there is no way to justify that. Steak, sure...fish, maybe. Pasta... No thank you. Pasta is suppose to be a simple, wholesome Italian dish.

Not worth the price. There are about a dozen other places within 1000 meters that make homemade pasta for less than 15 euro a plate that is incredible.

“Higher class italian cuisine”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

The location is very central and near the famous wasserturm. From outside it doesn't appear much and the limited space of parking space around the area. But the friendly italian welcome and the great food makes up for it. We had the famous fish salad for starter and the perfectly cooked seabass in seasalt crust which is artistically presented and served in front of you! A real experience! The selection of Italian Spumante and excellent selection of Italian red wines rounded it up. For dessert we had the chocolate tortina wich was delicious! When in Mannheim, this is the place to go!

“fingerlicking good”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

Also somewhat pricey, well worth the expense. The food, the service and the "little" extras all excellent. Go there when you are in Mannheim, you will not regret it.

“Great Italian Restaurant in Mannheim”
Reviewed 22 June 2011

I've been to this restaurant on several occasions. The food and wine are great. Service is friendly and although a little pricey it's worth a visit. The pasta is delicious and the desserts too. The decor is bright crisp and clean, tables are nicely decorated. It's very bright so if you're looking for a cosy intimate romantic dinner, there are places more suited for that.
