This might never have been. We showed up, and were told they were full, and we needed a reservation. But 5 minutes later called again, and they took our name, for right away. All is forgiven. Limited vegetarian options, but very well done. A vegetarian antipasto plate, coupled with two different vegetarian raviolis (one with pear and gorgonzola -- way... More

My wife and I had a very good dinner at this very unique restaurant. There is no menu, the data dishes are presented by the waitor, no proces, but don not sorry. We had a very 3 dish dinner, very tasteful and some good wine and coffee for just eur 75!!!! Fantastic quality/price relationship. I highly recommend this place.

There is no menu, so you need to pay good attention, when the waiter list the menu for you. The menu ranging from appetizers to main courses and desserts. So i was basically stuck on the appetizers, and forgot all the other courses our waiter mentioned, but it went well, and the food was great.,

Down a few steps and through the strangest doorway leads you to a wonderfully warm dining experience. The waiter tells you what is on the menu - there is nothing written down anywhere - so you have to pay attention. This is hard, because sometimes your mind wanders thinking about wonderful tastes to come..... The main highlights of our evening... More

It's a little surprising not to have a menu but soon forgotten as the description from the waiter is clear and concise. The quality of ingredients could not be faulted, service was excellent, presentation and skill of the chef in producing well cooked food at a reasonable price makes this a great experience.

Ate here twice this week and had two very fine meals at a reasonable price. It is a quiet place with not much atmosphere but the food and service are great. Recommended.

A little restaurant just off a happening square this Italian based restaurant made for a wonderful end to our Hamburg trip. As others have commented, to recite the menu from memory in several languages takes some doing and was just part of the pleasant service. The waiter helpfully suggested sharing 3 starter platters between the 5 of us and that... More

Small restaurant with excellent food and service. Not the greatest selection of food, and they do NOT have a menu-card! In stead the waiter - in a very charming way - tells you about the different choices. It works fine, and the will appreciates the quality of the food.
