There are many things waiting to be fixed in this restaurant. The food quality was below average, waiter was behaving little unusual (trying to avoid the word "weird") and even coffee was miles away from what one would get in Italy. But the main problem is actually the food. It was really not tasty, not even for German standards. I... More

Busy Italian restaurant in the centre of town off the Hauptmarkt. We we starving when we arrived so were impressed by the quick friendly service. I can recommend the Pizza Casa! Reasonable prices too.

Have returned here many times with my family who are local to Trier. Always found the food fresh and deliciously prepared. It is just a few steps from Hauptmarkt up a flight of stairs. Fornelli is casual and popular with locals and can get very busy during the main tourist season.

We arrived late but the friendly staff seated us quickly and saw to it that we had a drink very soon after. Our waiters English was sketchy but as we were the visitors to the country it would be unfair to criticise him for that. Food was fantastic and with multiple waiters working round us to reposition tables and to... More

I find this restaurant by the reviews. It was very disappointed. The food wasnt so good and the prices too much expensive for what they offer

We dined here twice during a short break to Trier. The staff were friendly, service was good and importantly pizzas were very tasty and the restaurant serves super draft pils lager. A good cheap and cheerful option in Trier Old Town!

We chose this restaurant based on reviews. We arrived early but the staff seemed challenged in seating customers. Once we were finally seated we waited a very long time for a waiter to attend our table. Our waiter was polite but kept making excuses he knew little English. Lack of English though was not the problem, he was just not... More

Trier has great surprises and this is one of them, a hidden gem. Good food service. Little hard to find and throw in getting up there but well worth the trek. A great meal makes it all worthwhile.

The restaurant is by Market Square with its sights and bustle. My wife liked her mushroom pizza and I my pepperoni, although I thought the sausage a little bit too spicy for my taste (I have a very low thresh hold for spicy foods.) The mixed salads were good. The chocolate mousse dessert was different from what we were used... More
