Odd to see a couple of reviewers attacking the food, which I have found a consistent strong point. I've been here several times in different constellations of friends, colleagues, family, and it's always good. Sometimes very. Service is knowledgeable and with the charm that comes...More

It is a nice-looking little restaurant, which also sells wine to take home. This is clearly their expertise, since it is better to buy a bottle and cook at home. Overcooked pasta with a tomato sauce and a few pieces of meat, did not convince...More

I visit Zafferano (safran) frequently. They have typical Sardenian dishes, like "culorgiones", a fresh stuffed pasta with potatoes and mint. The tomato sauce is homemade, and all the wines are from Sardenia. The place is small, so it's worth call to make a reservation.

If you like cheese, slices of meat, this is a cosy restaurant to visit. Staff were very polite, attentive. Pizza worth trying.

Zafferano has been my favourite restaurant in Heidelberg for a couple of years now. They do fresh, authentic food in a lovely, cozy atmosphere. The staff is incredibly friendly. If you are looking for haute cuisine, this is maybe not the best place to go...More
