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.

Great For Late Night Food

Pizza and other dishes such as cold cuts and cheeses are great. They stay open until 3AM many nights. The restaurant is really nice inside.

Stay there for lunch at the Karneval season. Although the city was totally full with people, we got a table and had an excellent service and one of the best pizzas in town.

First of all they ran out of specials early on in the evening. Not a great start. The waiting staff were very brusque and not welcoming. The food was average at best. No biscotti with the coffee - in an Italian restaurant?? I certainly won't be coming back.

Food very average and staff wanted to get you in and out as quickly as possible. They didn't listen to any requests. My colleague who had an empty plate was asked if she enjoyed her meal. I, who had hardly touched my food was not asked if my meal was enjoyable, just had the plate removed. I told the member... More

A poor room for the cost you pay. I was given a room with a door looking over the ceiling of the building nextdoor.On the front desk the gentleman doesnt even bother to reply to your "goodevening" not to mention that he never turned to say hi to me while my 5 day stay. The top disaster is the NOISE!!!... More

The food and the atmosphere looked from the outside fabulous. The service was okay from the door to the table. Sadly it went down from there. We went in at just before 7 and came out at 9 having only a main... No starter or desert! Yes the food was okay but the service.....

Overall very enjoyable meal, OK service, great location, and solid food. The location and atmosphere are the selling point -- old style room, candles, and near the Christmas markets. You won't be blown away by the food or service but you won't be disappointed either.

So good visited twice, shared the Bruchetta three ways and also had the Pasta sharing platter, again three typys of Pasta and full of flavour. On our visit during the Christmas Markets the place was buzzing with queues out the door at times. Depite being busy the service was excellent and the food came out quickly.

When I visited this restaurant on a previous trip to cologne I was impressed so on this trip decided to visit again. Very different. The staff were very arrogant and rude. The food was very mediocre and bland. Next time in cologne I will not be returning

Visted late November after booking online. Friendly greeting, pleasant ambiance, and full on a Sunday evening. Menu is Italian based with a good choice of dishes. However, our waitress was constantly trying to alter what we wanted to order with regard to both food and wine. I don't think German was her first language judging by the name badge, and... More
