This restaurant is recommended by the Holiday Inn Express as the best restaurant around. It is certainly the closest and the night we were staying it was raining cats and dogs so close was good. Actually we got pretty soaked in just the two minutes it took to get there. I had not appreciated that it was an Italian restaurant... More

The server was "cold" and without charm but the ordered pizza and beer arrived fast and were okay. Near to holiday inn express hotel where i slept so i made it myself easy but not the place where i... More

This restaurant is a short walk from the Ibis if you happen to be staying there before/after a flight. We had dinner on a week night, and the restaurant was not full by any means. The service was incredibly slow, and the staff bordered on being rude. The food, however, was pretty good and reasonably priced.

We stumbled across this restaurant because we were staying at the Ibis before a flight. We didn't expect much, but needed to eat. We were really surprised by the friendly service and GREAT food! I had the pasta stuffed with ricotta cheese, ham and truffle oil… it was one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had, and I recommend... More

Went for the convenience of it being near our hotel. Food wasn't bad, but we got bored with eating before we ever got full. Service could be better. Went a second night just for drinks and they said we couldn't sit at the bar (rest of the place was full).

This is why we use Trip Advisor, because good foodies talk! This place was super convenient and one block next to the Holiday Inn Express. We had a pizza and bruschetta, the little one had gorgonzolla. Everyone's food was good. The service was good, but it got busy fast so learn yo deal with not being the only focus for... More

We came here whilst staying at the Holiday Inn over the road. We'd hoped there would be air conditioning as it was 30c outside but there unfortunately wasn't (like most of Stuttgart it seems!) so we sat outside where there was a breeze. We order drinks and I had the tropical pizza which was ham and pineapple. The ham did... More

This well furnished place in marine style offers good italian pizzas allowing you a break after some days of traditional german food. We were a party of five from Italy, and everyone was satisfied. Prices are obviously not as low as in Italy but it is something to be expected in Germany. In any case a good pizza for a... More

Stopped here by accident and what a find. The food is excellent and the service is spot on. Well priced and so busy but understandable as everything was perfect. Well done the Flying Ship, I will return.
