Uninspiring dull menu, little effort in presentation and quite tasteless food. Desserts tasted a little stale and looked very sloppy. The atmosphere was lack lustre and the restaurant was empty. I would not recommend here when there are many better places in the neighbourhood.

Very good kitchen. Very kind service. A really nice restaurant to go, but... we had to accept the presence of a flattulent dog at the table next to ours. Even the complimentary amaretto could not make the experience good. The management has probably to make some choices!

Excellent food (though on the expensive side), excellent service. I was even able to find an excellent wine for a reasonable price.

Wonderful food (delicious appetizers, perfect tuna steak, unbelievable ravioli, great main dishes, very well balanced desert), outstanding yet unpretentious service (grazie Gianfranco), great wine recommendations and relaxed atmosphere. In proportion to the quality of food a fantastic value for money. Or simply: A perfect dinner!

I went to this restaurant suggested by my friend and was really very pleasantly surprised. Very hospitable, very professional, great wine list and delicious, real Italian food. The stuff of the restaurant, all of them were trying hard to make your dinner a real feast. Every time when I get to restaurants like this I wonder how come that such... More

We spent very nice evening in this restaurant. It was our first day in Munich. Very good food, very good atmosphere, very good staff, very italian. No need to write a lot. I recommend Hippocampus whoever wants to taste good italian cuisine in Munich.

I don't think I have given a review of 5x5 so easily before. From the moment we entered to the moment we left we were kings. Wonderful people, venue and food, surprise followed surprise, we left very happy people. Thank you Sven for taking us there for dinner, even though you had just had lunch there.

Lovely gardens and fantastic service top off the excellent food. A good wine list with seasonal food made this dinner well worth the moderate plus price. The servers , all "from Naples" switched seamlessly between German, Italian, and English. We had a fantastic time.
