i would probably not recommend the business lunch, since it is a wild mix of dishes (what has spring role to do with an italian restaurant?). the location is nice and the pizzas named after the 12 apostles are really huge and enough for 2 people. the ingredients in somehow unusual combinations are... read more

Starters of beef carpaccio, octopus and Mozzarella salad, we delicious. We then shared 2 pizzas between 3 of us. One was called Don Simon and one of the best Pizza's I have eaten. Beer was good, finished the evening with some cognac which was way over priced. Our bill came to 178 Euros nearly 100 of that was for the... More

The 12 Apostel is one of Hannovers first choices for having a nice brunch in nice mediterranean atmosphere. Stone oven Pizza is also said to be very good, but to be honest, I never tried. Can recommend!

A business group had pizza here for lunch. The restaurant is a beautiful old room that is worth just going to see it. We shared pizzas, which were very good. We did not try anything else so I cannot comment on the menu or other food.

A very grand looking Italian restaurant with painted ceilings and walls in the style of an Italian Cathedral. Extensive and reasonably priced menu. Several steak options which, from experience are done beautifully. Good choice of German beers but wine list could be better. Friendly service (despite previous reviews) and wonderful cosy ambience. No informal seating areas – it is straight... More

Bring a healthy appetite as these pizzas are huge.........but very tasty. Its a large dining room with good atmosphere. Service is good. Tried the Pizza Judas, the chilli peppers were VERY hot.

It is a very big restaurant with small tables... Famous with their pizzas.. You may have a delay if the restaurant is full.. Wine list is average.. Strong recommendation.

Lovely food and relaxed outdoor seating area for enjoyable evening with friends. Great pizza but slightly disappointing selection of pizzas and we did wait quite a long time for the bill. I'm being picky as the food was very good but it's not the cheapest pizza in town.

This is a very interesting restaurant, beautiful inside but not sure why you can't take any photographs - are they not proud of their restaurant. The service was absolutely dreadful, it wasn't that busy, but I waited for such a long time for someone to come and take my order, my soup took around 30 minutes to arrive, and then... More
