A perfect location is matched by competence in the kitchen. Staff were generally attentive, but inexperience showed at times. This is a great venue for that long lingering summer lunch - book a table to be sure of getting the right spot.

The food is very good especially the pasta and deserts! The service is very careful and efficient! The restaurant is better than the current ranking on Tripadvisor

We celebrated my birthday at this marvellous Italien restaurant with a party of 32. Not only that everyone but everyone was full of praise, most of them said that they will definitly return. We had a 4 course menue and had absolutely nothing to complain. Perfect service, perfect drinks and an unbeatable location with a great view towards the river... More

My number one in Hamburg is and stays La Mirabelle. My number 2, when 1 is closed (grande catastrophe!), would be La Vela. I came numerous times over the year, I always found the cuisine delicious, fresh, authentically Italian, the waiters all great Italian personalities. You sit directly near the water, the view into the harbour is fantastic. Ideal as... More

Went there for business dinner. The service was excellent, punctial and fast. I ate tuna as main dish which was very very good but a bit pricey. The restaurant also has a nice view of the docks and the wine list is quite decent.

Excellent food, wines and top service. Try the antipasta mix as a starter. The Lamb Hallibut was really nice

It's the second time that we have been to this restaurant. I hope the last. I agree that if you want to sit close to the river you have to pay the price. Especially in Hamburg. This doesn't meen that you can afford a poor service... We were 5, business relaxed dinner. Booked a table. When we arrived, only the... More
