Great restaurant, the food is excellent, friendly staff, but if you want to go there you have to make a reservation, because it's always full (which is a very good sign) with the same excelente service!

I had the lasagne and it was delicious, but it took the waiters to come to us a lot of time. We felt like we were forgotten. He was very nice to the large Italian family that arrived much later than we did, however. They must have had the most authentic experience...

A good Italian restaurant. The kind that every town needs. In summer you can sit outside, which is awesome. In Winter you sit in some kind of cellar. I like it!! Nice eines and food! Don't forget to place a reservation. It's the only solid Italian restaurant in tübingen.

This is the real deal. The chef and many of the staff are from Italy. We had a pizza and a salad and it was enough to split for two.

Our family had lunch twice here in the past couple of months. Both experiences were the same- Food and ambience great, service not good! The most memorable dish, which was a special, was the grilled salmon with white asparagus and a lemon butter sauce, it was wonderful. Definitely the best salmon dish I've had in Tubingen since we have lived... More

The service was just unpleasant, the shift manager was a rude guy who made us feel uncomfortable. We ended up being quite bitter, although the food was ok, nothing special

Warm summer night sitting outside on the terrace, party of 5. It took them FOREVER even to bring us our drinks! Even after it had cleared out, the service was still bad. We had to ask for the dessert menu FOUR times before they brought it out. The food was ok, I got the risotto with asparagus and shrimp, would... More

We popped in tonight and were lucky to get an early table at Zum Alten Fritz. The name is crazy because it is a wonderful Italian restaurant which doesn't need TripAdvisor reviews to do a wonderful business. We had a lovely meal enjoyed by the cozy atmosphere and great service. The family and food leans Calabrese which was to our... More

Over cooked risotto with too much butter. Over cooked spaghetti with tomato sauce and tinned tuna for which they charge 12 euros. Anybody could cook better at home

My wife and I showed up five minutes before they closed for lunch but the waiter was happy to seat us and serve us. We weren't rushed at all. We ate outside and it was a beautiful day. There is a terrace above the actual restaurant which is perfect on a nice day. We used the bathroom in the restaurant... More
