We decided to stop at this Italian place on top of the Michaelsberg rather than in one of the German restaurants in Bamberg as our elderly mother was tired from walking and needed to sit down. The view is very nice, and the garden is...More

This is a fantastic location, especially on a warm evening when you can sit outside like we did. The view is nice, but it looks more toward some of the more industrial portions of Bamberg. But still nice. The food is good, not great. There...More
