Ok having lived in Germany two tours in the military 3 years in Berlin and 4.5 years in Wertheim.

A small, quaint, unassuming restaurant with made from scratch food that brings you to Germany and Italy in a section of the country that really needed this diversity. Some of the best authentic German food we have eaten in the US. This small restaurant has seating for 26 inside and 16+ on the outside patio. Our waitress Jophia greeted us... More

We've had difficulty finding a restaurant that reminded us of the dinners we had while living in Germany. Well, look no more! Cannella was a wonderful experience and a culinary delight! The food was delicious and just like we used to enjoy in Germany. We can't wait to move to the area to enjoy a relaxing evening of our favorite... More

This husband and wife chef team boasts from Germany and Italy respectively. They prepare and serve authentic German and Italian cuisine at its best. Do not be deceived by its location and rather spartan atmosphere. This establishment serves some of the finest authentic representative dishes from that area of Europe you'll find stateside. Only the freshest and authentic ingredients are... More

This place was recommended by a local. We had to eat here once we learned it was Italian and German. I ended up ordering from the Italian side--squash ravioli. My husband ordered from the German side--Jager schnitzel. Everything is made fresh and their beers/coffee are imported. We shared a caprese salad which was classic and delicious, as was the stuffed... More

The specials you will not find anywhere else simply because some of his items are imported from Italy and Germany! My husband and I usually try to select a different dish and swap half way.

A piece of Europe. A small window into a beautiful part of this world. A married couple who using their old world cooking style and tradition brings to the coast long lost feel for many here in the south. Your cook actually grow up eating and preparing what we order.

This tiny quaint restaurant on Highway 90 in Bay St, Louis can be easily overlooked. The Italian and German husband and wife chefs offer a unique array of both traditional German and Italian comfort foods.
