I've walked past this classy-looking restaurant several times over the last fortnight, and popped in tonight as it looked quiet. And indeed it was, until 7:30pm when a noisy party of 12 arrived and other tables were rapidly filled. So much for tranquility and peace! The menu is extensive, covering the usual Italian fare supplemented by some more unusual game... More

Great little restaurant in Seestern. Authentic Italian food and waiters, even though they spoke German and English too. Food was excellent, including a vegetarian dish for one of our guests. Antipasto appetizer was very good, with very large shrimps and grilled vegetables. Seafood pesto risoto was outstanding and to top it of we tiramisu for dessert was to die for.... More

Great fare. Perfect pasta. Fantastic veal dish. Topped off with great service assisting with wine and grappa selection. There are many great Italian restaurants in Düsseldorf, and if you are in Oberkassel/Niederkassel area of the city, try La Contessa.

The pasta (truffle) and seafood was delicious (and very filling), the wine was perfectly matched to our meal and the dessert, tiramisu, was one of... More

We sometimes go here with clients for lunch break and so far it has always been a good choice. The food tastes good and the service was attentive. It's a pretty small Restaurant and they really tried to put as much tables as possible in it, maybe a little too many.
