What to write after all the other superlatives from other reviewers. The hospitality experience is as brilliant as the food and the family atmosphere and friendliness of the team is difficult to better. So informal on one hand and totally professional on the other. The ambience, decor and spaced out tables are cleverly done to give an authentic Italian experience.... More

Family run, excellent service and great food! Be sure and try the homemade pasta that is mixed in the parmesan cheese bowl table side. I have never tasted anything quite like it.

All waiters speak Italian, people are nice and friendly. Good wines and food. One of the most famous option is the pasta with truffle, which they prepare inside a Parmigiano cheese right next the table. I strongly recommend going by taxi or by Bahn since it is very difficult to park and you can easily find many options of Bahn... More

I was here for a week in Cologne, I came for dinner 5 nights! The food is the best, a real Italian family restaurant. Try the white truffle pasta, it is just magic you become addicted . The service is wonderful and the atmosphere cosy. Grazie!

Located in a very lively area of Koln, Etusca was recommend by a foodie colleague - I was not disappointed! With a party of 5, every dish was outstanding and you will be short changing yourself not to have a starter (dreamy carpaccio), a pasta dish (Truffle linguine) plus a fish/meat (Veal Chop outstanding. Room for a pudding. Of course.... More

I stopped off here for a quick bite at lunchtime. Not a great time for atmosphere as I was the only person there, however the food was still fresh and fantastic. They treated me as if it was a normal service, with amuse boushe, bread etc.. Great looking menu and would like to go back

My husband and I were here at the start of March. We left saying to each other that that was the best meal we've ever had! The food is truly Italian and simply out of this world! The staff were so helpful and friendly and we received a little cup of delicious soup as a present from the kitchen. The... More
