We finally got a chance to have a dinner in this restaurant - all our previous tries were denied by "Sorry, we've no more free tables". And we've understood, why. Instead of giving us a menu to pick up a dish, the owner of the restaurant announced a 6-gang menu (!) that she'd lead us through. So it was kind... More

Usually you are assumed to go for the 5 course meal. Please do so - you will not regret it. May stay with "house wine" it is usually an excellent choice fitting the courses very well. Not only food but also atmosphere excellent. Meet "Anna" owner and cook. Enjoy first class waiting. Atmosphere excellent for a good and warm evening.

I've been here on multiple occasions, and will continue to visit. The menu is fixed, and has been relatively consistent over a long period. However the quality of food is so good that I'm more than happy to eat it again and again. The wine waiter is knowledgeable and if asked will provide good recommendations which are also not extortionately... More

I'm Italian but every time I'm in Erlangen I make sure to dine Da Pippo at least once. The atmosphere is elegant yet cosy and warm, the service is welcoming and friendly and Anna is an incredible restaurant manager. The 5 courses menu is simply delicious: excellent balance of flavours, perfectly assembled top quality ingredients, you can really taste the... More

After reading the reviews here, we were ecstatic to try the five course meal in this restaurant. The moment we entered, we were impressed by how friendly and funny the servers were. They merrily explained to us that the menu's a surprise, but we could tell them what we don't eat. Sadly, the food did not live up to the... More

A family run restaurant. Excellent Italian cuisine with friendly relaxed and first class service. A good place for an outing to dine (enjoy a five course meal) and chat.

We didn't know what to expect with this restaurant, but we had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. There were a variety of courses, all delicious. And they catered for my food intolerances which is always appreciated. Would definitely recommend and will be going back

Excellent restaurant tomorrow with an unusual but very good "trick": the menu is being put together by the restaurant. One chooses between the 4 and 5 course menu. Food is absolutely delicious. One of the best I have ever eaten. ***** - full recommendation

We had an excellent dinner with 12 persons and we enjoyed it very much. I wouldn't have expected to find such kind of excellent restaurant in Erlangen. The welcome, service, food and wine (Gavi and Barolo), everything was excellent. Especially the taste of the food was skyrocketing. We had a fixed menu, but any individual food preferences (meat instead of... More

OK the food was good, but €56 for a set meal? Really? €4 for .75 litre water? €36 for a bottle of wine? I guess I should have realised when there were no menus and it was not clear how much the meal was. Feel a bit of a mug! I have no idea why this restaurant gets such good... More
