Ristorante Alfredo – Cologne
In 1973, Alfredo Carturan opened his fine dining restaurant next to the Cologne opera house. Gourmets consider the elegant, light-flooded location as one of the highlights of fine Italian cuisine. In fact, in 2011 the restaurant was awarded one Michelin star. Meanwhile Alfredo’s son Roberto has taken over the restaurant, adding musical specialities to the culinary highlights: he is an opera singer and every Friday he invites his guests to musical soirées.
