Palazzolo succeeds with flying colors. Da Cla gets its name from its owner Claudio, who spent time in Sicily learning the tricks of the trade before settling in Dusseldorf to bring authentic Italian cuisine to the German masses. The restaurant can be found in the Medienhafen district of Dusseldorf, overlooking the harbor. A rustic and cozy decor reflect the restaurant’s Provencal style mixed with a coastal charm. With a focus on simple flavors and high-quality ingredients,the seasonal menu features classic Italian dishes with a refined, modern touch. From octopus and prawns to mussels, Da Cla’s focus on frutti del mare does not disappoint. Don’t miss the lobster and truffle spaghetti, and take advantage of the long list of Italian wines. If you can’t get to Sicily, Da Cla is your next best bet for a stellar Italian meal.
