The venue here is excellent. A lot of character and history. Service is good and there is a buzz about the place. There is an excellent choice of good Italian food with pastas, pizzas and meat. The pizzas had a bit too much 'dough' rather being thin and crispy. A minor complaint. Definitely worth visiting for good solid Italian food.

Of course the Restaurant XII Apostel is known in Hannover for excellent pizza. Besides guests love the venetian atmosphere of this place with especially high ceilings of ancient brickwork and brocade curtains. If you would love to go, you should make a reservation!

Arrived relatively early in the evening with a small group of co-workers, overall a party of four with a reservation. The restaurant was maybe 10% full at the time of arrival (but filled to near capacity by late evening). And parking was already a chore at that point. Service was a bit on the slow side, even for your usual... More

The place is amazing to look at and the food is top notch quality. The staff were friendly and serving was fast. A really really good restaurant. Be aware tho, this place can be loud so consider that if you don't like to have some liveliness in a restaurant. I liked it a lot.

Good italian restaurant. Big open hall, so quite loud and noisy inside, so not the place to go to if you want to have a quite evening, but nice for bigger groups. We tried pizzas, pastas and sallads and everyone was happy with their food. Defintley worth a visit! I really liked the interior and the themed-named pizzas!

Four of us ate at this restaurant tonight. We arrived without a reservation and having politely asked if there was a table, received such a brusque and rude reaction and treatment from the head waiter that we almost turned around and left. Management, take note! Apart from that, we enjoyed our meals. Not brilliant, but acceptable. Chicken Caesers were 6.5/10.... More

This restaurant is next to the Sheraton hotel making it a very nice place to eat if you are staying there. Nice menu and very nice concept.

The premises are installed in a former factory, so even though the Venetian decoration is really nice, the (loud) ambiance is more of a canteen than of a restaurant. I was there for our corporate X-Mas dinner, so we had a buffet with a very wide range of dishes, allowing me to try a little bit from almost every dish... More
