After a 20 km bicycle struggle against the hard wind we landed at Teatro, an Italian restaurant with a great terrace in the very cosy center of Xanten 4/5. It was very busy this sunny sunday. We ordered green tea 4/5, a pizza frutti di mare 4/5, a spaghetti aioli 4/5. The service was not friendly, our waitress was over... More

The food at this Italian restaurant was good but the welcome was fantastic. We ended up staying all day with friends and having dinner too! It's very good value for money with a wide range of Italian food on the menu and a large drinks menu.

We arrived at 3pm for a late lunch. We had great food with excellent service and ended up staying until 11pm also having dinner at the same restaurant. The service was excellent; especially Genka who was very accommodating! Would definitely recommend and if in Xanten, we would return again.

We only visited for a quick lunch and (non alcoholic) beer, but the restaurant interior was very pleasant and the service was excellent. The limited food and drink that we did have was very enjoyable and I would certainly be tempted to return for an evening meal on another occasion in order to sample the wider menu and wine list....

Good food and a prime location in a quaint German market square this should be a winning restaurant, but unfortunately let down by a rude member of staff who lost it because she thought she wasn't going to get a tip, when in fact she was but due to a communication error stormed off with a face like a smacked...

The Teatro has a nice location and friendly staff. However the prices are a bit in the upper end for the food served. I don't know if the chef had a bad day but I expect more for that price and 4€ for a 0,3 cola is a bit overpriced. This together with that the staff 2 times before we... More
