The German city with the highest density of Italian restaurants. Here are the best ones.
It is often said that Munich is the northernmost city of Italy. Why is that? People of Munich love Italy. Italy’s border is only three-and-a-half hours away by car. Much of the architecture has been inspired by Italy and there is a large Italian population in Munich. But what is most important is that many Italian restaurants have settled here, spoiling us with the finest Italian food.
A listing of all the restaurants would be quite lengthy, so here are a few special ones.
Monti is located in the meatpacking district and is probably one of the best restaurants in the Isarvorstadt district. Do not be fooled by the external appearance; The influence of the meatpacking district is evident. But the restaurant is so close to the source of fresh ingredients and can create the finest dishes. The Mediterranean-style interior is very enchanting with chandeliers and fine furniture. The spaghetti with clams is a must.
Restaurant Da Paolo is a little hidden trattoria in the district of Sendling. It is very famous for its fine Sardinian cuisine and the menu changes every two weeks. But don’t come looking for pizza here; the cuisine is characterised by its seasonal dishes. Whether quail or fresh fish, everything is prepared according to original Sardinian recipes. For the final touch, a Mirto (liqueur made from myrtle berries) after dessert should cap off the night.
It can’t get any more Italian than Bar Centrale – an institution in Munich. You have your espresso at the bar like in a classic Italian café with a delicious tiramisu served on the side in a small cup. And, just like in Italy, avoid ordering a cappuccino in the afternoon. During after-work hours, Bar Centrale invites customers to have an aperitivo (or Italian-style happy hour). Enjoy your Spritz in an authentic Italian atmosphere.
For anyone who knows about cars, you’ve probably guessed what Mille Miglia has to offer… and you won’t be disappointed. Right at the entrance, you will first encounter the front of a Fiat Cinquecento. And the boss doesn’t usually miss the opportunity to welcome the guests personally when entering. The restaurant is very popular so it is advisable to book in advance. Pizzas are huge and can hardly be eaten by one person. There are daily pizzas made with black dough and a menu favourite, the “Audi R8 V 10” pizza – most of which are named after sports cars – with buffalo mozzarella, rocket, Parma ham, cherry tomatoes and parmesan slivers. All pizzas come from a huge wood-burning oven that you can spot as soon as you enter. The equipment corresponds to a collection of car utensils. A must for every motorsports fan.
