We visited for an evening meal while in Bremen on business. Though busy, we were seated within 5 minutes. We asked for help translating the menu, and it seemed the only dish was fillet steak - we duly ordered two. I nearly fell off my chair when the €120 bill arrived - on closer inspection we were charged for two mystery dishes. We asked to speak to an English speaker, but that never happened.
While the food was outstanding, it was very expensive. Not a terrible thing in itself, but I felt we were taken for a ride because we were foreign. I'd have had something more affordable were it offered.

This is a family-runned restaurant in which the attention to the client is paid very carefully.
The waiters are kind and efficient and the service respects the breaks needed between courses.
The menu is a great compendium of excellent food, with Italian specialties and refinement.
To have a meal Al Pappagallo it is an awesome experience, to be recommended even if for a short stay in town. To recommend for a romantic dinner either for a luxury business meeting.

Family run business since many years, Il pappagallo offers a wide variety of tasteful italian specialties with no compromise to please local taste. Wine choice is large and affordable, service is very kind and experienced. In case of nice weather, a beautiful garden completes the large and clear dining room

We were in Bremen in June 2013, and decided to eat here following reviews. We didn't arrive until 11pm as we thought the restaurant was open late, but it closes at 11. Instead of turning us away we were welcomed in and recommended the beef.

The steak was cooked to perfection with a side order of mashed potatoes which was also delightful.

The staff could not have been friendlier and was lovely to see that along with the amazing food and service they all got on very well together with the 5staff sitting down to a meal together at the end of their shift.

The atmosphere is nice and relaxed, the restaurant is simply but very elegantly decorated. I would highly recommend this place if you are in Bremen.

I went there with my girl-friend during the Jazzahead weekend in April this year and it was one of the greatest fine dining places I've discovered so far. We did'nt have a reservation, but the owner still found us a table in the bar-side. The food was delicious and we particularly appreciated the friendly and animated atmosphere, starting from the owner and finishing by the usual clients who had joyful conversation with eachother and also with us. And the resto was full of full!
