A nice dinner in anice location close to the Alster lake. The Italian style food, especially the fish, is really good. Reservation is recommended. The ambient and the athmosphere is very relaxing

A good restaurant to enjoy Hamburg on a warm summer evening right by the water. Reservations definitely recommended as the place tends to get crowded. A good Italian menu with fish, meat and pasta selections. The portions are generous and quality is fair. All three of us had two appetisers each with desert and this was definitely more than sufficient... More

I was searching a nice dining out for a close friend of mine who visited Hamburg. I wanted to have good food, nice ambience but also a little bit of Hamburg flavor.

What a fantastic dinner. I would recommend reservations which we did not have. Nonetheless the host was gracious and found us a table after a very short wait. Dinner was superb, as good as any in the states if not better. We shared 2 pastas for appetizers the ravioli, scrumptious and the nightly special pata with asparagus and 1/2 a... More

We had time to kill in Hamburg until our room was ready on a Sunday. The hotel suggested this restaurant. We decided to try it as it was nearby and we were both exhausted from travelling. It was Mother's Day and our anniversary so we were hoping for something special. Boy, did we get it! From the beautiful setting on... More

A fantastic restaurant! Top location, incredible food quality, very fun, professional & welcoming staff. Suitable for long enjoyable dining in a discrete atmosphere, pleasure for all the senses! Great wine selection!!! The tiramisu was superb (and I know about Tiramisu:) Pricey but absolutely in accordance with the quality of food and service! Would recommend it over and over again.

There is a buzz in this restaurant among the many diners and this is very popular with a clientele that clearly dines here often. Its due in part to the location in a white painted wooden cabin with windows and a terrace right on the main lake in Hamburg. The menu is extensive, mostly Italian with a wine list that... More

I had a great experience in this restaurant. The food is fantastic! I am Italian and I can tell you that this is real Italian food. I was with a colleague.
