Local residents recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. We took our friends and enjoyed a special evening together. The ambience is welcoming. Dressing up or down is fine. Enough soft furnishings help hearing. We sampled all courses; everything, including the fish, was delicious. The food is Italian.

The food not only looked good (first-class presentation) but the taste was exceptional. I especially liked the ravioli with truffels. The wine list is also excellent. Yes, it is a bit expensive and even the students, who take their girlfriends there, are well dressed. I agree with NG F: "Wanna impress her? Take her there!" (gastro-gnomes = restaurant workers)

The second you are walking in you can see and feel that this is a high end high quality place but without the snobby attitude. Friendly and quick service, generous portions, reasonably priced. Real perfect authentic Italian taste. The perfect place for a business lunch or dinner or a romantic getaway evening.

Cooking and prices are just below a Michelin star. Very good italian fare. The chef is creative in his italian framwork. Examples are Lobster with truffles, Bouillabaissse, marianted Octopus with arucola and potato. Wine lsit is mainly Italian only and bang for the bug is good. Visit it frequently and the menu is not up to our frequency.

Certainly one the best Italian and one of the best restaurants in Tübingen. Always a pleasure to go there. Also good value for money.

Possibly one of the nicest restraunts in South Germany and clearly the best in Tübingen. Food is delious and service exceptional. Friendly without being over bearing yet welcoming and charming. Food is plentiful and well presented. Not cheap - but for what you get is an exceptional. Food is comparable to a stared restaurant. Excellent wine.

Constantly good italian food. Sometimes they use too much oil on the dishes. Tasty and fresh. Service is a hit and miss. They should spend more on the training of their people.
