I visited Minneci with my grown son back in December 2016. What a find! We were staying at a nearby Holiday Inn, a walk of just a few minutes. The restaurant was crowded with businesspeople and couples, but management and the servers were as attentive to us as to the other customers. (Yes, sometimes restaurants assume -- wrongly -- that...

I left the Minneci with mixed feelings. On e the one hand I the restaurant intself is very cosy, nice place, very Nurnberg old style, lots of stone and wood. The service is good, very polite. On the other hand the food was rather average with the clear attempt to deliver fine dining Italian. It did not really work for... More

One of my favourite places in Nuremberg. Nice (romantic) place, professional service and excellent food. Little pricy but deserves every cent.

Minneci (Leonardo) is a small Italian restaurant in the same old building as Zum Gulden Stern, just a block or so from the Holiday Inn Nuremberg City Center. Not only is this restaurant Italian in its cuisine, it is also staffed by Italians, who do service as only they can do- with flair. The cuisine is high Italian, not pizza-level... More

A surprisingly nice place if you consider the immediate neighborhood. A real high end Italian restaurant with tasty and delicious food. Make no mistake, this is not a cheap pick but it's definitely cuisine.

We were on the hunt for just a slice of pizza while walking through the streets after dark. Yelp led us on a wild goose chase, so we decided to head back to our hotel. We came across Minneci which seemed to be a "high end" restaurant, but after looking at the menu, decided to give it a try. We... More

Really glad our tour guide, Kevin (of Private Tours in Nuremberg) recommended tis restaurant. We got in on our last night in Nuremberg, sick of all of the "wurst" meats we had been eating all week.

The service is extra slow, the portions miniscule and the food is nothing special. Be aware this is an expensive restaurant.
