I left the Minneci with mixed feelings. On e the one hand I the restaurant intself is very cosy, nice place, very Nurnberg old style, lots of stone and wood. The service is good, very polite. On the other hand the food was rather average with the clear attempt to deliver fine dining Italian. It did not really work for... More

One of my favourite places in Nuremberg. Nice (romantic) place, professional service and excellent food. Little pricy but deserves every cent.

Minneci (Leonardo) is a small Italian restaurant in the same old building as Zum Gulden Stern, just a block or so from the Holiday Inn Nuremberg City Center. Not only is this restaurant Italian in its cuisine, it is also staffed by Italians, who do service as only they can do- with flair. The cuisine is high Italian, not pizza-level... More

A surprisingly nice place if you consider the immediate neighborhood. A real high end Italian restaurant with tasty and delicious food. Make no mistake, this is not a cheap pick but it's definitely cuisine.

We were on the hunt for just a slice of pizza while walking through the streets after dark. Yelp led us on a wild goose chase, so we decided to head back to our hotel. We came across Minneci which seemed to be a "high end" restaurant, but after looking at the menu, decided to give it a try. We... More

The service is extra slow, the portions miniscule and the food is nothing special. Be aware this is an expensive restaurant.

Had the opportunity to try to place during my last trip to Nuremberg. Wonderful atmosphere with careful and efficient service. Outstanding cuisine with beautifully served Italian inspired dishes. Had a very tasty and tender octopus salad followed by fork tender lamb chops. Dessert was in line with the rest of the meal. Wine choices is top quality. Recommended for couples,... More
