This is one of the nicest airport restaurants in Europe, the view is great, looking out over the runways etc. The food is good and not too expensive, it is served promptly and they let you take your time if you have time to kill. There is something for every taste on the menu, from quick snacks to a full... More

Wow, what a find this restaurant was! My colleague and I were in Munich on business earlier this week, and having time to kill before our flights home were wandering around the airport a bit aimlessly when we came across signs for Il Mondo. It became a bit of a game of hide and seek as we followed the directions... More

Consistency is a real acid test. Just great Italian pasta and meat dishes accompanied by gorgeous wine ( red in my case). I love... More

Munich Terminal 1 on the top floor of central part of the terminal. You would never just walk past and find this place you need to take the lift or escalator and seek it out. This is before check in and security. Italian food and as many others have said a direct view over the airport. It is a haven... More

This is a very quiet place, if you want to get away from everyone at Munich international airport. A great selection of wines, but the food is very expensive.

If possible I will visit this Italian restaurant at the Joseph Strauss airport in Munich (MUC) with a nice view at Terminalsite 1. The food is delicious and the plates are pre-heated. Don't expect pizza's ,but (anti-)pasta and decent meals. They reach high quality in an quit ambiance.

From the top of Terminal 1 at Munich airport, right above check in, with a great view across the airport, Il Mondo is always worth a visit. Service is fast and friendly, and the menu has a wide range of Italian offerings, some of the specials can be a little odd but most are very tasty.. I almost always go... More

Culinary delicacy, excellent wines, typical Italian service and the stunning view of the planes make the il Mondo very special. The chef Angelo Cossu focuses on regionality, seasonal influences and original Italian specialties. He only serves dishes that have been cooked with ingredients from the local region. Meat from Bavaria prepared Italian or Mediterranean style is just one example for the completely honest, local and hearty cuisine with authentic products from ingredients with naturally flavor.Enjoy dishes from the seasonal menu or treat yourself with the weekly brunch. The il Mondo is also the right location for several events. With its two additional rooms with space for 40 to 80 persons the il Mondo is perfect for weddings, baptisms, birthdays, company events or business meetings. On request the chef Angelo Cossu will prepare a suitable menu for you.
