Needed a break from German food and tried this Italian restaurant on the square by Frauenkirche. Better than I expected for this tourist spot, including respectable service. Had a pasta dish with 'prawns', which turned out to be what we refer to as small-medium sized...More

Called in for lunch. We ordered asparagus soup and cake. The guy came back in a few minutes and plonked the cakes on our table. As if we were going to eat the cake before the soup. Whilst we were waiting we asked could we...More

We are from the U.K. and we dine here every time we are in Dresden. There are many Italian restaurants in the centre of Dresden so competition is fierce. From the outside the Classico look like your bog standard Italian eatery. And in many ways...More

Late with review because I couldn't locate the proper name (my notes and pictures all said Champagner Lounge which is on the exterior of the building). Fabulous food and environment. Accommodated 10 of us with no notice and service was still impeccable. The Veal Saltimbocca...More

Service was ok, not bad, not amazing. Food was satisfactory but not happy by the inclusion of artificial crab stick in my Spaghetti Marinara. Great location, right in main square overlooking the huge cathedral which on Christmas Eve was extremely busy. I would not rush...More

I have never experienced a cup of hot chocolate that was as rich and thick. It reminded me of the pictures visualized in the Polar Express. What a treat on a cold winter day!

The menu was typical of what you would expect to find at a good Italian restaurant and the food was very good. The staff were attentive and the service was quick. Upstairs and downstairs (& outdoor) seating available. Pizza 9-13.5€, Pasta 8.40 -13€, Salads from...More

Very good Italian restaurant. Sitting on the terrace is very agreeable. The restaurant lies on the same square as that of the Frauenkirsche and usually there is no traffic at all so that the calm is guaranteed. Apart from that the view over the stated...More

The waiter(s) did not speak a word of Italian. The cuisine is not Italian, but "tourist-italian". So do not go there if you want to eat real italian food. The atmosphere inside is not really cosy, but gives a 'burger restaurant" impression. Furthermore, very long...More
