excellent pasta

Food was excellent, spaghetti de casa and spinazie ravioli as was the Pino Grigo. Restaurant is in a typical German style with swift service.

Very accommodating staff considering we brought a 1 and 3 year old to dinner. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Excellent service and food. The pasta and meat dishes were stellar.

We had an excellent meal. As a starter we had the platter with all kinds of small starters. The ham was magnificent. The wine was really really good. No pizza to be found here but only true italian dishes. We loved it

A previous reviewer convinced me to try Akademie by stating this was genuinely a place where he could say the food was great without specifying "for Germany". I can only confirm the food at Akademie was a superb experience. You'll find deceptively simple classic Italian dishes on the suggestion menu, they appear full of complex and well balanced savours on... More

Since this used to be one of our favorite restaurants when we lived in Heidelberg, we decided to visit it again on our familiy trip. And we were not disappointed by the quality of the food and wines they serve. Even better; one of my favorite dishes (tortellini filled with spinach) was still on the menu and tasted just as...

We ate here twice during our 2 night stay in Heidelberg as we saw no reason to go elsewhere having had a great first meal. The menu is small but there are many daily specials which we had - the tortelloni with truffle and the aubergine parmegiani were exceptionally good. Wine was good and reasonably priced. The service was slow... More

Hidden away from the main street this restaurant is well worth the visit. The specials board had some interesting variations, both the spicy sausage penne and the Chanterelle tagliatelle were delicious. Friendly atmosphere and good service - value for money too, we would certainly recommend!

Quaint little restaurant off the market square. Would definitely return. My wife and I shared a bottle of Resieling and fresh prosciutto and cheese. She had a pasta dish, while I had the lamb. The food was delicious. The staff were very kind and the atmosphere was very quiet and relaxing. Would give 10 stars if possible. Loved it.

Ristorante Akademie's basic menu features only 5-6 entries per category - the 'usual suspects' one associates with Italian cuisine. The daily menu, however, is a compilation of the season's highlights and includes fish and seafood. The freshly-sliced Prosciutto di Parma is a must-have - its 'melt-in-your-mouth' effect is a rare treat. Overall, the food is well-prepared, the simplicity allows the... More
