Paolo Granatella opens Pastarotti in Bonn Röttgen

Newly discovered
Pastarotti in the tennis club

Paolo Granatella and his wife Antje have reopened the gastronomy of the tennis club Röttgen as «Pastarotti».

Paolo Granatella is a well-known and respected name in the gastronomy scene in Bonn. The native Sicilian ran Fattoria di Paolo in Duisdorf from 1994 to 2014 and Pastarotti on Brüser Berg from 2014 to 2020. Now Paolo and his wife Antje have taken over the gastronomy (also open to non-members) in the tennis club Röttgen, also under the same name Pastarotti.

“Mediterranean cuisine with the typical Italian classics in a family atmosphere”, is how the friendly Padrone sums up the concept. The interior with dark wooden furniture and dark brown leather upholstery shows atmospheric Italian pictures and paintings of the host couple and has 30 seats. Another 30 guests can be accommodated on the high terrace and have panoramic views of the green area over the tennis courts.


The antipasti and salads include, for example, Pane condito (shepherd’s bread with olives, capers, anchovies and coarse parmesan) for 5.50 euros or Insalata tacchino with fried turkey strips in herbal sauce (11.50 euros). The pasta dishes include penne mafiosi with spinach and mushrooms in Gorgonzola sauce (9.50 euros) and spaghetti carciofi with artichokes in cognac cream sauce (10.50 euros).

In addition to the pizza standards, there are also more unusual varieties: Pizza Contadina (with artichokes, olives, mushrooms, peppers and onions), Pizza Biancaneve (with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, arugula, parmesan and garlic) or Pizza Quattro Caci with four types of cheese ( all 9.50 euros each). Paolo’s recommendations currently include Alsatian pizza with crème fraîche, goat cheese, bacon, apple, pomegranate and leek and pasta con polpettine al pomodoro (pasta with meatballs in strong tomato sauce), both dishes at 11.90 euros each.


Peters Kölsch is on tap (0.25l for two euros), Radeberger Pils (0.33l for 2.30 euros), Schöfferhofer wheat beer (0.5l for four euros each) and the Italian beers Moretti, Peroni and will soon also come from bottle Ichnusa (all 0.33l three euros each).

The wines by the glass include Regaleali Nero d’Avola by Conte Tasca d’Almerita from Sicily (0.2 l for seven euros). There are also ten bottled wines from 21 euros to choose from, such as Vermentino “Costamolino” from Argiolas (Sardinia) for 24 euros.


Paolo Granatella also plans theme nights. This Sunday, June 26, the Cologne sports journalist Stephan Klemm will visit Pastarotti from
