Not too expensive and has nice outdoor seating. I have to say its a nice simple Italian restaurant and I would recommend it ( even the service was good).

The food is ok, but nothing out of this world as some people described it. The menu was only available in German so that was annoying having to ask to translate practically... More

We went there, as we read the reviews for the authentic Italian food. Well, the food was tasty, but not anything special, unfortunately there were not many choices in the menu (5-6 pasta dishes and another ~5 meat dishes I think), whereas I found the prices for an Italian restaurant a bit on the high side (in comparison always to...

I had my birthday dinner in Certo and have been there several times. I enjoy going for the authentic Italian food and excellent wine selection. The staff is also very friendly and the service is fast. They are also very knowledgeable about their wine.
