Description: Nur wenige Minuten von Kölner Dom und Rhein entfernt liegt das XII Apostel Köln mitten in der Altstadt, die den richtigen Rahmen gibt für die XII Apostel Speisekarte. Hier findet man den milden Petrus, einen scharfen Judas oder den beliebten Paolo. Die Rede ist von der Spezialität des Hauses, den riesigen, hauchdünnen und knusprigen Holzofen-Pizzen.

I have just returned from a week long business trip in Cologne and ate here twice. The place was a virant bubbling noise of chatter and clatter, a real great atmosphere. The food was very well priced and the Pizzas were very good indeed. The desserts were alo very good :-) Will definately return next January!

Food good, though salmon a little bit too salty. Restaurant itself however was lovely with an excellent atmosphere. Good location in Altstadt. Prices reasonable.

Our hotel had booed us a table. When we arrived there was no sign of huge reservation but the waiter took us right into the back and found us a table. We waited quite a long time for any service and eventually our order was taken and then the starters arrived virtually immediately. No cutlery given so we helped ourselves.... More

We came here for lunch on saturday afternoon. Got a table on arrival, although very busy. We ordered bruschetta (not seasoned and no olive oil present- quite bland, but once we added these it was better) We also had the tortellini filled with spinach and ricotta (pasta too thick, so it was chewy, the sauce was cream based so quite...

Was recommended this restaurant by our hotel as a good place to for a really authentic pizza. Bring right on the edge of Heumarkt and with the Christmas markets in full swing, we were expecting it to be very busy. It was, but we found a seat quickly. The menu is quite extensive and the service was good. It is... More

Went here for a drink last night. Sat at a table 6 feet from the bar. Went to the bar to order drinks but was advised to wait at the table and someone would take our order as they couldn't serve us at the bar. Duly waited and after fifteen minutes decided to leave. Disappointed as we had been looking... More

Stumbled across this restaurant as we were walking around cologne. It was a Saturday night and the local football team were at home so the town was very busy, as was this restaurant. They told us the wait would be about 20 mins which was fine. They showed us where to wait and had drinks brought over. It was about... More

We stumbled across this place on a 3 day trip to cologne. It is located in central cologne next to the old town and although its Italian Cuisine and not German, the menu does not disappoint, we found most restaurants to be very expensive in the surrounding area but this one provides both food and drink at a reasonable price....

I suppose this restaurant is the victim of it's own success. It serves good food and the service is very efficient, it does tend to lack the personal touch though. However, due it's obvious success the place is very cramped and as a result hot. We visited the restaurant in November 2014 on a Wednesday evening and whilst everyone enjoyed... More

This places gets packed. Its a big place and can get very noisy. Menu is a newspaper and has a great menu. We had a couple of starters to share which were fabulous and the mains were just as delicious. Great portion sizes, not too much but certainly enough to enjoy. Recommend for groups, families etc
