This place was great! We got two bottles of the red wine of the week- a Cabernet Sauvignon- for the four of us. It was delicious. We also had the beef carpaccio and smoked salmon appetizers- both fantastic. The mozzarella that came with the salmon was so fresh and delicious. I wanted the tuna steak, but the restaurant was out... More

Excellent Italian restaurant a few minutes outside the old city. Well worth the walk. Very good service, excellently prepared and presented dishes. It was cool so we ate inside, they also have a patio. Décor is a bit more modern than the old town which is a nice change. Pasta was cooked and prepared perfectly. A good change from a... More

We ate here on our two nights in Rothenberg, the location is just so pretty alongside the wall with lovely gardens and even a fountain. Choice of dining inside or out, we ate in, the chairs super comfortable encouraging diners to take their time and enjoy their food. Staff professional and friendly, checking regularly if you needed more drinks etc... More

Even though the restaurant is located near the main gate to the Old Town, it seems to be very popular, no doubt due to good reviews here. The popularity is justified. It is a genuine Italian restaurant. I went without a reservation and even though all tables outdoors were reserved, they accommodated me warmly. The wait staff was very polite... More

We were accommodated inside as the terrace restaurant was full. A quiet, pleasant atmosphere with friendly, helpful staff. There was a good range of choice on the menu to suit all purses and the food was delicious.

There are five of us traveling, all with different tastes. Michelangelo was the perfect restaurant to celebrate our last evening in Rothenberg. The server greeted us at the door and led us outside. She was wonderful about explaining the specials in English and taking our drink order. I have seen other reviews which have discussed poor service. We did not... More

Outdoor patio along the city wall with a fountain nearby giving a soft bubbling background to a lovely Italian meal. Very friendly staff. Large menu ranging from pizza and pasta to specials. House made pasta, excellent fish and lamb. Family friendly for youngsters and teenagers.

We stopped here for a night in late June 2016 and our kids were exhausted from our flight the day before. Not only was it a pretty place to dine in, the food was delicious and so fresh. They also were very helpful with our kids who were needing food quickly and a Coke to wake them up. Then we... More

On a warm summer evening it's nice to have the choice of sitting outside for a meal or inside where the decor and atmosphere is more elegant. Opted for typical Italian fare with minestrone soup & tomato salad starters then Lasagne and Prawn Pizza mains. Food was plentiful and filling. Good choice of wines including Montepulciano which IMHO was better... More
