At least two other English reviewers mentioned on here, service was unfriendly. Upon walking in on a Monday evening, I was greeted by not "Hallo" or "Good evening". This man said "Yes?" with snooty attitude as if he couldn't have guessed that I was there for dinner. I've dined at many places but had never encountered this kind of attitude... More

Alte Kanzlei is not a pizza, lasagna, and heavy tomato sauce Italian restaurant. It is upscale and serves interesting and very tasty dishes in a upscale restaurant atmosphere. A great place to try an Italian dish you haven't tasted before, because everything we had was excellent. A very good place for a business lunch, ask for the room at the... More

Interesting experience as this hotel seems to be in a small town house, with the diners sittings in small rooms with different amounts of tables in each area. The staff were very helpful. The food was goods, nice selection of truffle dishes to start with past dish for main course. Excellent wine.

I love spicy food but this pasta with some strange, very hot sausage was just awful. Sorry, I have to give one star. Next time I will try meat.

Nice look of the restaurant let me hope to eat well. Unfortunately, the meat was hidden under too much salsa and vegetables were overcooked.

Very good Italian restaurant. We had supper at Alte Kanzlei for two evenings. Mozzarella buffalo was too fresh, as in Italy. Meat was very tender and tasty, scallops were very delicious. The service was also good.

I went to this restaurant with a colleague to have an informal dinner. We were greeted by a welcoming hostess, and shown to a table in the back of the restaurant. It was a very nice setting, with a kind of library cosy feeling. Service at the table was really great - and it soon turned out that everybody serving... More

We had our dinner in this restaurant with around 30 people. As this was a business event, we had a prepared set meal and a choice for the main dish between vegetarian, fish and meat. Already the starter, a mix of different vegetables, was delicious. It then continued with a very nice, tender beef filet and potatoes, with some very... More

The food was very good indeed, the service was efficient but not what you would call very friendly. I was very put off by hearing one of the waiters complaining pretty loudly about a very small tip someone else had left.. Not very professional!
