We were visiting Schloss Nymphenburg and chose this restaurant for lunch because it was close and we were tired of German beerhall food. Little did we know that we'd found a little piece of Italian heaven in Munich. The restaurant is on a quiet, residential street and occupies the lower floor of a corner building. The dining area is not large, maybe seating for 35 or so, but they do also have a nice outdoor area which would be lovely in good weather. The interior dining area is cozy and modern with a simple elegance. The position of the restaurant, a half floor below ground level, adds to its charm and large windows keep it from feeling dark or closed in. Everything is clean and neat as a pin.

The lunch menu has much to offer and the day we were there they had 8 additional specials from which to choose. We ordered salads which were fresh and nicely presented. Our entrees were delicious and the portions were ample. Since there were 4 in our party, I got taste two risottos, my pasta dish and a tuna special, all of which were fabulous. The wait staff was attentive and the charming owner visited our table several times to check on us and make us feel welcome.

Over the next few days in Munich we decided that this place deserved a return visit, so we also had dinner there on our last night in the city. In the evening, candles add to the ambiance of the space. In addition to a nice wine list (mostly Italian whites and reds with a few French wines thrown in) they have a good selection of spirits as well, including 4 different bourbons, We again ordered salads, then our group chose two veal dishes, a house-made Sicilian sausage and a pizza. All of the entrees were delicious and beautifully presented. We shared one dessert, an incredible orange tiramisu, and enjoyed the house-made limoncello at the end of our meal.

Having visited Italy 4 times, I can say that this restaurant is authentically Italian and would hold its own among fine restaurants in any Italian city. If you are in Munich and ready for a break from German fare, you should definitely make the effort to visit this gastronomic gem near Schloss Nymphenburg. You will not be disappointed!

We ate dinner here one night in Munich and really enjoyed it. We started in the outdoor garden but had to move indoors when it rained. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The host was very friendly and made us feel welcome and special.

This restaurant was just a few walking blocks from our hotel. The food was wonderful and prices were reasonable ($13-$20 USD). I ordered off the daily special menu and the shrimp/asparagus risotto was very good. Their service was excellent and the staff had a great sense of humor. I would recommend this restaurant. It was a welcome change after traveling two weeks in Austria/Germany and eating sausage and potatoes every day.

We love this cozy little restaurant (there's a really nice patio, too) and have never had a bad meal there. The best thing is the service, which is professional and friendly, and the jovial owner is always there overseeing everything.
The risottos are really good, and the pizza, too, but there's always something tempting on the specials menu, so we usually order from that. You really can't go wrong!
