Our family had lunch twice here in the past couple of months. Both experiences were the same- Food and ambience great, service not good! The most memorable dish, which was a special, was the grilled salmon with white asparagus and a lemon butter sauce, it was wonderful. Definitely the best salmon dish I've had in Tubingen since we have lived... More

The service was just unpleasant, the shift manager was a rude guy who made us feel uncomfortable. We ended up being quite bitter, although the food was ok, nothing special

Warm summer night sitting outside on the terrace, party of 5. It took them FOREVER even to bring us our drinks! Even after it had cleared out, the service was still bad. We had to ask for the dessert menu FOUR times before they brought it out. The food was ok, I got the risotto with asparagus and shrimp, would... More

We popped in tonight and were lucky to get an early table at Zum Alten Fritz. The name is crazy because it is a wonderful Italian restaurant which doesn't need TripAdvisor reviews to do a wonderful business. We had a lovely meal enjoyed by the cozy atmosphere and great service. The family and food leans Calabrese which was to our... More

Over cooked risotto with too much butter. Over cooked spaghetti with tomato sauce and tinned tuna for which they charge 12 euros. Anybody could cook better at home

My wife and I showed up five minutes before they closed for lunch but the waiter was happy to seat us and serve us. We weren't rushed at all. We ate outside and it was a beautiful day. There is a terrace above the actual restaurant which is perfect on a nice day. We used the bathroom in the restaurant... More

The pizza here is excellent, and the pasta dishes are also delicious. I love eating both inside (which has the design of a wine cave) or on the upstairs patio (open only in summer). Highly recommend the Pizza Rucola.

This is a very nice Italian Ristorante & Pizzaria conveniently located on Gardenstrasse along the Neckar river. I can highly recommend the restaurant for not only pizza, but for their pasta and salads. We had a special pizza for the night (with mozzarella di bufala) as well as gnocchi with a Gorgonzola sauce. They also have a nice selection of... More

We have been to Alten Fritz five or six times since September and it is definitely the best pizza in Tübingen. The cave-like restaurant is great and the outdoor terrace in the warm weather is wonderful as well. We have always only ordered the pizza because we love it so much (the Arugula and Rustica pizzas are our favorites), but... More
