My husband and I almost walked out of this restaurant after being ignored for more than 25 minutes after sitting down. Meanwhile, other diners came and were seated and getting their wine or cocktails before the server finally made her way to us. After ordering a couple glasses of wine, another 20 minutes went by and we were still waiting... More

We walked by this restaurant and it looks nice. It’s just inside city wall. We sat outside and looked at the old city wall. The food was very good, I had a steak that was perfectly cooked, the service was little slow. It was a good dinner choice

We ate here twice in two days, because in Germany it is hard to find other cuisines, especially if you dont want meat or heavy dishes. This place has kind service and lots of choices.

The restaurant looked cosy and inviting from the outside but there was no atmosphere at all. The waiting staff were grumpy and abrupt but we stayed because being vegetarians we are somewhat restricted to where we eat. I had no complaints about the food - all good . Service with a smile would have been appreciated and we weren't even... More

Looking for something different, we decided to try Michelangelo. Authentic Italian cuisine served in a stylish, comfortable environment. Prices were so reasonable, we almost expected less. But the quality and the presentation of the dishes was perfect. Tried the lamb chops (5). With pumpkin risotto. The chops were so tender, cooked perfectly. Also had seafood pasta, large portion. You can... More

Very unfriendly staff! 2 entrees ordered, after a long wait only one entree was served, no comment from the waiter that the other entree might take a bit longer, we waited awhile and then both of us shared the 1st entree, finally the second entree came, the pasta was not only cold but the center was FROZEN! When we complained,... More

The place to go when you want pure italian food in a stylish environment. To be honest, if this place was located in a big city it would be the top of the bill. Stylish interior, and a sublime cuisine. Honest dishes, high quality, simple and good prices. This should be the nr.1 on the list of restaurants in Rothenburg.

Beautiful meals. We had pasta, salad, pizza and fish. All were very nice and at reasonable prices for such a beautifully showpiece restaurant.

It was a very hot day on Aug 30th so the the Restaurant's outdoor terrace was splendid for an early light dinner. The Salads are splendid. I specially enjoyed the Esotica (green salad mixed with pineapple and melon dices) - perfect to end a hot tourist sightseeing day at the exquisite medieval "burg", Rothenburg! The rest of the family chose... More
