Refined Italian cuisine

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... read more

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

In a square a few 100 metres from the main shopping street. The restaurant had an upmarket atmosphere - there seemed to be a few business dinners going on. There was a very warm welcome from the owner as we walked in. Generally the service was excellent with well presented and tasty food. Wines available in smaller measures with a... More

You will find this cosy restaurant in a quiet back streets of Heidelberg. Dining at a Italian restaurant in Germany goes against my principles but there are so many Italian restaurants in Heidelberg and so few good German restaurants. The hotel concierge recommended Akademie and it was perfect. It is a small restaurant with a cosy and warm atmosphere. The... More

Nice and comfy restaurant located near the main Street of the old City quarter of Heidelberg. We went there for dinning and were absolutely satisfied about the quality of the served dishes: from the Starters to the deserts. A great place to go!

This is my favorite restaurant in Heidelberg. Once of the few places I can genuinely say has excellent food without having to add "for Germany" to the end.
