It is a mystery to me why this restaurant is so well rated. The food is average, the space cramped and the service unfriendly to rude. During our last lunch visit two of us waited 35 minutes for the food to arrive and the third person in our party another 10 minutes. When we pointed this out to the owner... More

Nice little Italian place here, usually quite colorful Italian waiters that seem out of place in Frankfurt but make the meal entertaining. Good salads and pastas here. Small place but they often are in Europe

Boutique place with quality staff, great food and a beautiful atmosphere. Seemed to be full of locals, pretty well priced as well (80 Euro for two for lunch).

It was 3pm and I was walking alone in Frankfurt as I had 5 hour layover. So I decided to go and eat near the Opernplatz. My surprise that most restaurants do not serve food after 2-3pm. I had to look carefully to find the good place I can sit, eat and read my book. So I entered this restaurant.... More

The food was very mediocre, but that's not an issue - the service is the worst ever, especially the bald Italian waiter (I guess he's Sicilian) was very rude, sometimes even shamelessly saying swear words in his Italian language!!! Those who don't wanna be insulted never go to that restaurant!!!!!!!!!! Waiters contain the worst qualities of infamous Italian mobsters (not... More
