Lovely evening meal at the end of short holiday trip

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.

We didnt plan to eat at this restaurant but the interior and the atomsphere made us stay. Food was awesome, very fresh and probably the best pasta I had in Europe. Service depends, we were with a kid. Didn't get the best attitude we could get from all people. Some are really nice, one is just fine. Would like to... More

My boyfriend and I had just been in Italy before going to Germany and we did not come across Italian food there that was better than Michelangelo! We had the vesuvio pizza which came as a volcano and was set alight, as well as, the baked rigatoni. Both meals were faultless, the vesuvio pizza was jam packed with delicious filling... More

After being disappointed by a different Italian restaurant in Rothenburg, we stumbled upon this place. The service was wonderful and there was lots of variety on the menu. I would recommend ordering the fish - the presentation is very interesting!

Excellent pasta with chantarelles / porcini and fresh, grated truffle. The tiramisu could have used some more amaretto but all in all great food and wine for great value!

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

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!

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