There's good food with amazing service. I went here with a friend but I can see it being a popular spot for dates.

I went to this restaurant for the first time almost a decade ago. I remember eating their Rucola salad. The ingredients were so good it blew my mind. Went there recently and ate Spaghetti Arrabiata. The taste was very good and the quantities were huge. The Tiramisu was incredible! Their service is excellent. Attentive but not intrusive. Will be happy... More

This is the place for pasta in Tubingen. Freshly prepared by a very friendly staff. Helpings are large, so order accordingly. Also enjoyed the outside table where you could watch the street life during dinner. Great, friendly place!

We dropped in for a late dinner (21:30) and were delighted by the friendly welcome and in general the friendly service, also the nice decor. We both ordered pasta dishes, which came quickly, in fact a bit too quickly to be a relaxed dinner. The food tasted good but it fell short of being great. (Perhaps we were spoiled by... More

For sure one of the best Italian restaurants in Tubingen in very nice environment; mid if Old town. Very good Pasta and alo very good main courses, excellent atmosphere and good wine. As it is in Old town, no parking but the walk over there is wort doing it.

I went there with friends. The dishes are okay, but the interior of the restaurant is quite special.

You get a fresh drink with a mix of Prosecco and red wine from Apulia while you wait cause it's basically always full. The owner is from Bari and keeps a tight control of the restaurant but still with a great atmosphere. Food is just delicious and house wine is such a bargain. Service is very quick and friendly. No... More

Unlike other Italian restaurants in town, this one has a knowledgeable Italian wait-staff. The place is charming--carved into the old city wall, very near to the river. The food was good both times we went. Tomatoes were in season, so the tomato salads were wonderful. The risotto was delicious, as were the sole, the salmon, and the monkfish. The pasta... More

Sometimes, when I miss Italian food (pizza, pasta, wine!), I will go there, and I like the atmosphere as well. It is a wine cave and quite romantic. They also have steaks (around 18 Euros). So if someone wants to have a relax night, it is a good choose, and the price is also moderate, for pizza and pasta is... More
