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

Enjoyed a nice dinner, including good wine and excellent service. Sitting outside, after a wasp committed suicide in our wine bottle, we instantly got a new bottle, for free.

The food was good also. But sometimes it is just hard to find a good glass of wine to have with your dinner! We had a great time. The staff was professional and the service was great! We will be back!

The hotel clerk recommended this restaurant and she was right: lovely Italian food for a reasonable price. When I entered, the restaurant was full, but I was allowed to wait at a high table until a seat became available. Started with the Vitello tonnato and then mushroom pasta as main dish. Two glasses of red wine made it perfect. As... More

My husband and I ate here on our honeymoon and had the most wonderful experience! The food was out of this world as well as the wine to accompany it!! Everything from our starters to our desserts was top notch. The service was also very attentive. I would highly recommend eating here while you are in Heidelberg if you are... More
