Well worth searching out

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.

We hadn't booked but decided to go to Akademie on the strength of the Trip Advisor reviews we had read (and also because it was very near our hotel). The food, to be fair, did not disappoint - fantastic tortelloni, incredible veal saltimbocca, great cheeses and a good zabaione . It certainly is expensive (€5.90 for a litre of water,... More
