So I am in Hannover on business and have been staying at the Sheraton for the week. It's my last night in Hannover and I must say it's ending with probably the worst meal I have had since arriving here. Like most people have already mentioned, the restaurant really is like a big hall...not my kind of set-up. The decor... More

We stopped here for a quick late lunch. We considered the buffet which looked fine, but went for the pizza which was on special for 9,50. One was the "judas" which had peppers on it. The crust was excellent, thin but not too thin. It is cooked in a brick oven and is fast. The location is very convenient to... More

The dining room is really big with no sound isolation which is followed by a really noisy meal. The pizza was good, the service as well

Friendly staff, tasty food and efficient service! The pizzas are really big and tasty. Crisp, but the choice is a bit limited. Tartufo ice can be recommmended too.

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 fresh, the pizza comes from a wood-fired...

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
