For a different night out this restaurant is well worth a visit for its wonderful decor if nothing else. Having said that the food we ordered and was served for a family night out was just right. Not fine dining, but that wasn't expected in a monasterial ambience. Good pizza's and pasta all served in a fun like convivial atmosphere... More

Monastero is a superbeautiful ambiente middle age - you will feel like having dinner with your loved ones in an ageless romantic atmosphere with great pizza and superexclusive winecellar. Tip - book the taple in the winecellar or the one near by the firepit. The vegetarian pizza is the one to go with extra nice verdure!

I work for an italian company and know very well the real italian kitchen. I also know how bad many pseudo italian restaurants can be outside Italy! I'm allways a bit afraid to eat outside Italy in a italian restaurant but this restaurant was a very positive experience with very nice antipasta that were like in Italy. My collegue took... More

We had a very nice evening. The food (Starter, Saltimboca and Pizza) was very good. The ambiente is out of the ordinary with the theme "monastery". This is THE place to take a date out on a romantic evening. Many cosy and separated tables. Make sure to make a reservation well in advance.

I have been twice in Il Monastero for the past two years. Both times with the same waiter. Their uniforms as monks are impressive, the stone walls, the candles and the hidden place for a romatic couple's dinner are all contributing to wonderful intimate but also shared atmosphere. The waiter is perfect, not intruisive but always at the table at... More

The entrance at the back of Karstadt shopping mall looks a bit odd but us soon you arrive at Il Monastero on 2nd floor the medieval ambience really hits you. For us the layout, design and decoration was the highlight of the evening as the food at all was a bit flat in taste. Nothing special worth to keep in... More

I loved this place once but now it knows what it is and to be honest the service is good but the food has become bland and boring. If you did not make a reservation plan on waiting for ever on your feet. Because there is no place to sit in side at the bar.

Recommended by fellow travellers, IL Monastero is hard to find as its located on the first floor of the Karlstadt shopping centre - its is worth the trouble getting there though! Absolutely amazing dining experience with waiters dressed like Monks and tables set into little rooms and alcoves and lit by candeliight and subdued lighting. Makes for a very intimate... More

This is a must visit once in Rosenheim. Surprisingly, finding the restaurant was the most difficult task. After that, the evening was the most splendid experience ever. And, this comes from people who actually live in Italy (we're not Italians, but nevertheless). Every detail is thought of and you're stay is made truly special. We ordered the 7-piece full course...
