Better than Italy

You need to eat here! The food is delicious and the ambiance is great. I ate on the back patio and enjoyed the fresh pasta. I had little pasta bindles stuffed with pears and gorgonzola topped with a saffron cream sauce. The best Italian meal I've had -- even those in Rome and Naples!

I wanted to like this restaurant but didn't. It looked so nice and the staff was friendly, just the food was bland and tasteless. On top of that because of it's location at dusk the place is invaded by thousands or flys. I asked the waiter and he said it happens every night in the summer. Stay away

Service was bad....left everything at the end of the table instead of placing it in front of you.. When we complained about the problems with the meal to the owner they deducted $3 from a $110 bill. In the salad the lettuce was rotten and there was hair in the spag bol. There were 5 of us and my meal... More

Well I've been traveling around Germany eating mainly lunch meat and pommes frittes ( French fries) for the last two weeks, so if you are gluten free, nice to know this place had pretty decent gluten free rotini pasta. I had it with Bolognese sauce, very nice. My husband had the lasagne and my daughter had a pizza. All pretty... More

Fantastic lasagna and air conditioning too. I will return here the next time I'm in Rothenburg and try something else on their menu.

Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. You can sit outside in the shadow of the ancient city wall. The wine list is not exhaustive but plenty of choices are available. All the pasta and gnocchi are house made and simply melt in your mouth. We had wonderful sauces on the pasta dishes we ordered. All the food was... More

We eat twice at this restaurant during our stay in rothenburg, and on both nights we had excellent meals and great service . If you like pizzas you must try the vesuvo and have your camera ready . The pasta dish was really filling too , it was mushroom filled pasta with tomatoes and beef strips it was really yummy.... More

So after spending a few weeks in Germany I have come to the conclusion that Germans must love Italian food. It seemed like everywhere we went there we more than a few Italian places to eat. My wife and I ate at here on our last evening in Rothenburg. I think the strongest point of Michelangelo is the atmosphere. Very... More

We had a good dinner last night at Michelangelo. We arrived before 6 pm so we were the only couple in the restaurant for about 20 minutes. The waiter hovered a bit, which was a little disconcerting, but once he had more than one table going his attentiveness was less annoying. The food was nicely prepared and the gelato was... More

Just got back to hotel after an absolutely amazing meal in an amazing restaurant. Hadn't booked and they found a table for us both,not bothered it was a table for four and they were busy. The choice on the menu was vast and it was hard to choose between all the lovely sounding dishes. All the courses were fantastic, freshly... More
