“Make sure you go to the L' Originale”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

O now know, its right next to the Piusstr metro station ( on lines 3 or 4)
I nearly made the mistake of going to the Pizza Piccola, like the other writer mentioned , which is chain.
It's typical italian basic, pizzeria, simply good pizzas at 8 euros. We had a pizza and a Pasta Al Forno, both great. Including a litre of wine 26 euros.

We did not book, it was a very wet Tuesday and we arrived at 7pm. I would certainly go back. If it was near me at Home , I would go weekly.
We did not have it , but the roast vegetables looked very good, possibly part of the anti pasta.

“Very affordable and excellent pizzas”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

A dozen of different pizzas, between only 7 and 9 €. You finally got a huge but delicious pizza. Great garlic and spicy sauces.
As always, great Kölsch.

“Basic pasta and pizza-perfetto!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

While on a Rhine river cruise we got a craving for some red sauce while touring Cologne, Germany. The highly recommended L'Assaggio was closed so we opted for Pizzeria Piccola L'originale. It was about a 4km taxi ride from the river dock but well worth the ride.( Our taxi driver came back for us after dinner and got take-out! Smart man.) One of us tried the spaghetti Bolognese- perfect-and the other had pizza with veggie toppings which was delicious. Salads were very good too. Decent wine list. No room for dessert but had an excellent espresso. This is a tiny place so we were glad we made a reservation. We arrived at 7pm and watched the place fill up. There are about six to eight tables inside and about the same outside.The counter was doing a booming takeout business. This is a no-frills place but excellent food. Perfetto!

“Excellent Italian in Cologne”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Visited this restaurant twice in four days as it was so good in December 13.

Couldn't believe how cheap it was to be honest and the quality was excellent.
Knew it was going to be good when we walked through the door and it was full on a Tuesday night.
If I return to Cologne I will return to this restaurant.

Pizza's, pastas, salads and sides all freshly prepared.
We all had pizza and bruscetta which was excellent.

“Wonderful find”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

This small neighbourhood Italian restaurant is fabulous. Freshly made, delicious food - pasta, pizza, risottos, salads. Friendly staff, worth finding. I visit Köln frequently, and I am delighted to have found this restaurant. I had a black truffle risotto, that was expertly prepared.
