Zülpicher Straße 27, Köln, 50674 [Map]
Cologne is one of the oldest and most beautiful cities of Germany. It lies on the River Rhine and is a major cultural centre of the Rhineland. With institutions like the University of Cologne, one of Europe's oldest, a vibrant arts scene and celebrations like the Cologne Carnival, the city that lies on the River Rhine attracts millions of visitors and is home to friendly and welcoming people who make the most out of life.
Food gives them a reason to celebrate and so the city has a wide variety of restaurants, both German and others. Etrusca is a stylish little haven that serves tasty Italian cuisine, so if you wish to sample something other than typical Rhineland dishes, pop in to this rustic and intimate restaurant in Zülpicherstraße, a street that is full of lively bars and restaurants.
Wrought iron furniture, bare brick walls and chequered table cloth make Etrusca the perfect place to enjoy a lovely candlelit meal in classic Tuscan style.
Customers are given an opportunity to taste carefully selected Italian wines and the numbers there will not disappoint you. Carlo and Filippa Padiglia, the owners of Etrusca make sure there is always a good display of some of the tastiest regional Italian dishes on huge blackboards around the restaurant. You could visit them for a leisurely lunch, a family meal or catch up with friends over dinner.
Favourite dishes include wild salmon in chive, orecchiette pasta with homemade sausages, veal slices with gorgonzola and sea bream with herbs. The antipasti at Etrusca encompass carpaccio with rocket and Parmesan, fresh shrimp salad, and small plates of tempting bite sized delicacies that can be shared. Amongst the main courses expect to find choices such as duck breast in balsamic caramel sauce, rosemary lamb, lemon sole as well as a selection of fresh pastas.
For those wanting to satisfy their sweet tooth, there is tiramisu, an authentic Italian dessert with light sponge soaked in espresso and rum, layered with mascarpone cheese, eggs and dusted with cocoa powder; wonderfully light and fluffy zabaglione made with liquid custard, eggs and Marsala and served with fruit and ice, and almond parfait.

The Rathenauplatz is one of the prettiest spots in Cologne, a beautiful square with a park in the centre, almost like an oasis in this teeming city. Surrounded by a number of well maintained houses on one side, there are a few beer gardens as well as restaurants nearby, and among them, Restaurant Amabile is noteworthy for its excellent cuisine and serene atmosphere, providing a backdrop of relaxation and laidback enjoyment of life's pleasures.
The décor is quietly elegant with warm, wood furniture and interesting photographs along with some eclectic art on the walls. The ambience is just right for a romantic evening, and outside the dining options take on a very contemporary and carefree feel.
The mingled influences of French and Mediterranean cuisine make their presence felt in the menu, where fresh and seasonal produce are used widely to effectively create some of the most delicious fare you have ever had. For starters, Restaurant Amabile presents some delectable fried prawns and Jacob's mussels with white foam, tomatoes and marinated cucumber spaghetti. The snails in mushroom with Gorgonzola gratin sauce and herbs have the right elements that bind it together into a most appetizing dish.
Moving on to the main courses, the geschmorte lamb shoulder with needle beans and rosemary potato crepe; the monkfish with mozzarella and basil on bresaola filled risotto or the fillets of royal sea bream with polenta and red and orange cumin sauce all stand an equal chance of becoming well loved favourites.
If you're uncertain about what to choose, the three or four course surprise menu may be just the thing to opt for, and for a fixed amount per person, you can let the chef decide your meal. For dessert, apple tart with tonka beans ice cream or the luscious crème brûlée ring all the right notes and you are left with a feeling of pure bliss, a natural reaction towards the end of a fine meal.
When in Cologne, drink only Kölsch beer, maybe the diktat that many follow although at Restaurant Amabile you could indulge in some of their excellent wines as well. An eclectic selection, the wines there seem to have found the perfect balance with the food.
For an evening out at a delightful restaurant that promises to make an epicure out of you, a visit to Amabile becomes a foregone conclusion.
