Floating on the Alster with excellent atmosphere especially at night. Good Italian food. Attentive service. Certainly worthwhile going to.

Our group enjoyed a very enjoyable meal on Alster Lake. Service was solid with positive comments received for the main fish dishes. Highly recommend the appetizer sampler. Great wine list to accompany your meal.

Great food, lovely location on a hot summer evening. We dined by the water as the ducks and swans swim by. Only drawback was the staff. They were friendly but so busy I could not get their attention for long periods.

Sure, the house made Tiramisu classico with fruits. Absolutely delicious from start to finish....More

Beautiful Italian restaurant with classy atmosphere, excellent food, efficient service and a great view to the Alster. It's pricey (2 starters, 2 main dishes and 4 glasses of Sekt added up to a 100 euros) but it's definitely worth it. They have a good variety...More
