Simply the best Italian Restaurant I have ever used. Great lively ambiance and excellent service. Would recommend the Pasta Mista for 2............just great. Cologne is a lively Karneval dominated city....the waiters are friendly and superefficient. Everybody loves you to have a go at speaking German.....patient and happy to go along with the joke. Packed on Saturday evenings.......easy to get a... More

If you are 4 or more guests, you can order a large pizza: pizza Marcus. This was really nice: one big and delicious pizza. We enjoyed it. Every time that we visit Köln, we went for a dinner at XII Apostel.

Our first visit here 12 months ago was good but I think they must have been having a bad evening on this occasion . Service was awful .. very slow and disorganised....when meals arrived they were wrong, consequently some in our party of 8 had finished before others had eaten. One in our party never received the meal she ordered... More

Good Italian food and good choice of pizza. Not big choice for wine by glass, but pretty long list for wines by bottles. We took pizza and salad with some wine. Everything was good. Prices are reasonable. Location - just on Heumarkt Platz. Other time I was there desserts were also perfect, we choose tiramisu and cream brülle.

Walking along the streets exploring the city, came across this place. It was about 6 in the evening and the restaurant was almost packed. Despite of not having a reservation the manager accommodated us. We asked the waiters for his recommendations and he actually sat with us to explain the menu. Food came super fast and super delicious. A beautiful... More

Nice Italian restaurant in the downtown. Big menu in a newspaper style, takes time to read. Offers antipasti, pizza, pasta, fish and meat courses. Local beers in 0,2 glasses. Good wine selection. Quick and friendly service is appreciated. Place was a wee crowd at 9pm but we were seated no problem. Portions are huge, pizza is roughly 40 cm in... More

Nur wenige Minuten von Kölner Dom und Rhein entfernt liegt das XII Apostel Köln mitten in der Altstadt, die den richtigen Rahmen gibt für die XII Apostel Speisekarte. Hier findet man den milden Petrus, einen scharfen Judas oder den beliebten Paolo. Die Rede ist von der Spezialität des Hauses, den riesigen, hauchdünnen und knusprigen Holzofen-Pizzen.
