We've had lunch and dinner at C'era Una Volta. Both were excellent. Splendid, authentic southern Italian food spiced with the well known Italian hospitality. Last but not least: very friendly prices. Don't leave Nürnberg without eating here!

Not just the food is worth it, but the service was excellent. Completely recommended! Had the tortellini as first, delicious sicilian red wine, and a fantastic sea bass for second. On top of this, grand dessert and grappa on the house. Great night

Perfect, delicious, fresh and homemade food, great drinks (just listen to recommendations) and a very pleasant atmosphere. The family running the restaurant are so sympathetic that its extremely difficult to find a favorite one. An amazing Chef, Franco, makes the place that much memorable. Being a neighbor for more than a year, I am so sad that I did not... More

Super food, nice wines, perfect ambiance and a super chef! This was our second visit. The first one was in May 2014. It was so great that we couldn't wait to come back. This time we came with a group of 30 people, business friends, from Germany, Spain, Italy, Singapore and The Netherlands. Franco welcomed us in the most heartwarming... More

The starter was fresh and so tasty and my main course was sea bass which was cooked perfectly, my business partner had the beef which she described as stunning. The house wine at 35€ was a fantastic recommendation. Overall the meal was so good and the bill was... More

I came with a group of friends and left with the bad feeling of having been thoroughly ripped off. The food was good, straightforward and well prepared, but the overall experience was so negative that consequently I would never go back. As pointed out in other reviews, there is neiter a menu nor a wine list available, only a prix-fix... More
