Who were the Katzlmachers? This is how Italian immigrants hailing from Trentino and Val Gardena were called because they carried around a wooden spoon, a derogatory term used to address Italian migrants. Opened in 1983, Osteria der Ktarzmacher is now managed by Giorgio Cherubini. Locals flock here for solid and reliable Italian cuisine. The menu changes with the season, much more than any other Italian restaurant in Germany. Among classics are pappardelle with chianina beef ragout, sarde in saor served with polenta, and bacon-laced rabbit roast with porcini. The wine list is well stocked, with over 200 labels of both mainstream and small boutique Italian wineries.
