Always a pleasure to dine here! The food is wonderful and affordable. Only German - Italian restaurant in the city. The service is friendly top - class.
As a German, I can recommend this place! It’s about as close as you can get to good German food outside of Europe.

Amazing Food from their German Italian menu, We were sharing PIZZA which is the best on UWS. Hungarian Goulash is delicious. The service and live music was out of this world. Finally found our favorite place.

It’s a little weird to have a full German menu, then things eggplant parm and pizzas - but I had the German platter and everything was delicious. I’d go back.

German dishes seem to overtake the italian that we came for. The Mama Mia salad was a marinated salad swimming in too much dressing. I always used to love this restaurant,

Great German food but a bit pricey for what you get. While the schnitzel was huge, it was paper thin. The waitress really didn’t have a clue and couldn’t answer any question, without having to ask.

Delicious meal! I had the veggie frittata with potatoes and a salad. My partner had the mushroom fettuccine. Reasonably priced for the area and so is is a good value. The owners are very nice people.

I enjoyed my experience as did my brunch/luncheon companions.
I guess it's been a while since I was there because I was startled by the addition of all the "wursts" and German menu items. Ditto the guitars and other musical instruments hanging from the ceiling.
My husband had the German Breakfast - he enjoyed it. I had the Salad Romano - the fennel was in chunks rather than the thin shavings I have enjoyed before. the dressing wasn't as lemony as I would have liked. I then had Eggplant Parmigiana and it turned out to be Eggplant Involtini instead. That's an ok dish, prepared in a health-conscious way (which pleased my waistline) but not what I had anticipated.
Our guest had the Caesar Salad - she liked it - I missed the addition of either croutons or anchovies. She followed with Baked Eggs w/ tomato sauce & cheese - and found it delightful especially the red sauce.
The Tiramisu was very good. The Chocolate Hazelnut Cake was ok but not great. The Cafe Americano was a bit watery - just ok.
We enjoyed talking with the new (to me) owner and hearing him play the piano. There was a delightful impromptu presentation of a song from Mama Mia by our (pleasant and responsive) waitress who is looking forward to a theater career once the theater re-opens! We wish her the best!

Went to this restaurant before going to the Beacon theatre on Feb 7th. Small, restaurant with tables extremely close to each other. I ordered the chicken in lemon and wine sauce with mashed potatoes. My huband ordered the lasagna. His food came out piping hot. I have a pet peeve about the temperature of my dinner and my dinner came out luke warm. The chicken was not hot at all which leads me to believe it was premade and not made to order. I sent the meal back and when it returned, it was the same temperature as when I sent it back. I did not want to make a big deal out of this, so I ate it. Won't be back.
