Late with review because I couldn't locate the proper name (my notes and pictures all said Champagner Lounge which is on the exterior of the building). Fabulous food and environment. Accommodated 10 of us with no notice and service was still impeccable. The Veal Saltimbocca was the finest I've ever tasted. I enquired about the sauce recipe but the chef... More

Service was ok, not bad, not amazing. Food was satisfactory but not happy by the inclusion of artificial crab stick in my Spaghetti Marinara. Great location, right in main square overlooking the huge cathedral which on Christmas Eve was extremely busy. I would not rush back.

Every time I visit Dresden my German friends and I dine here at least once. Go on up to the second floor and secure a balcony table weather permitting or the lively indoor dining by the piano. Coming from America and eating in some of the "best" Italian places there, I found I hadn't really had good Italian cuisine until... More

I have never experienced a cup of hot chocolate that was as rich and thick. It reminded me of the pictures visualized in the Polar Express. What a treat on a cold winter day!

The menu was typical of what you would expect to find at a good Italian restaurant and the food was very good. The staff were attentive and the service was quick. Upstairs and downstairs (& outdoor) seating available. Pizza 9-13.5€, Pasta 8.40 -13€, Salads from 5.30€, Meat mains 21.40-26.40€ and Fish mains 16.40-21.40€. We had the Macaroni and vegetables at...

Very good Italian restaurant. Sitting on the terrace is very agreeable. The restaurant lies on the same square as that of the Frauenkirsche and usually there is no traffic at all so that the calm is guaranteed. Apart from that the view over the stated church is superb and breathtaking especially at night when its façade is flooded with light.... More

The waiter(s) did not speak a word of Italian. The cuisine is not Italian, but "tourist-italian". So do not go there if you want to eat real italian food. The atmosphere inside is not really cosy, but gives a 'burger restaurant" impression. Furthermore, very long time between the courses. So : a tourist trap.

The WOW factor is in full effect at this delightful restaurant right across from Dresden's Frauenkirche. You can actually dine on the second floor balcony - looking out over the plaza with its Martin Luther statue. The food is quite good - regardless of whether you want pasta, pizza, or meat dishes. The dessert menu is limited, otherwise I would... More

Light food provides a respite from the somewhat persistent "schweinefleisch bit kartoffeln" (pork and potatoes) all around
