Very friendly staff with a most tasteful menu. Good choices and a large wine selection. The owner is always present with his recommendation. Try the fried eggs on spinach wtih truffles.

“Good food....dishonest wait staff”
Reviewed 14 January 2009

Recently, I was on a business trip to Frankfurt, Germany. My colleagues and I were staying at the Marriott downtown and asked the concierge for recommendations for dinner. "Vini…Da Sabatini" was recommended to us as a great restaurant, good atmosphere and served a variety of food choices (Pasta, Fish, Steak, etc.).

We were received in the restaurant with a warm welcome and complimentary valet service. Upon seating and looking at the menu, my colleagues and I (four in total), reviewed the menu, and commented on the very limited selection and very expensive food.

The time came to order wine, they refused to give us wine by the glass, indicating that they did not have any wine by the glass – as they did not have this as an option. Let me also comment, that one of the colleagues speaks perfect German; so all conversations were held in Germany, and therefore no language barrier.

As dinner progressed, another table sat down next to us – and we quickly noticed that their menu was completely different with completely different prices. This ‘new menu’ was double the size, and half the price of our menu. We asked to see their menu, and confronted the waiter with this problem with menu in hand - specifically, that on this new menu there is wine by the glass!!! Of course, the waiter indicated that we were given the wrong menu, due to the waiter being new on the job, and that we were going to get the appropriate prices.

The food was very good – too bad that is over shadowed by the horrible service and the dishonesty of their wait staff. The only time that I would recommend this restaurant is if you want to be swindled.

Frankfurt is a huge and wonderful city: Get out and enjoy it – don’t eat here.
