In a nutshell
A Must To See When In Bavaria
I've been visiting Schwangau for eleven years now but only started to eat here in the last few visits. I could kick myself for not going there earlier. The food is fantastic, especially the tomato soup and the tirimasu! The pasta dishes are excellent and the pizzas are HUGE! (you can get smaller sizes though). This restaurant doesnt look much from the pictures on its website but please dont be put off. The staff are friendly and the owner Franco, speaks good English. A definate must for anyone staying in the area!
Favorite Dish: The tomato soup to start, then any of the pizzas followed by tirimasu if you have room! Its delicious and so light!!!

If you can arrange it, avoid going there on a beautiful sunny weekend or during vacation time in Germany. It is no fun at all to be among this many people. No parking space, the horse driven cars to bring you up to the castle are all occupied, the tour through the castle makes you wait in endles queues, prices are up, food is louzy. Best time to select is during the week on a slight overcast day.

There will be some older gentlemen there wanting you to ride in their horse drawn carriage to the castle. DON'T DO IT. It is overpriced and we almost missed our tour of the castles because he wanted to fill the whole carriage first, then leave. I showed him what time our tour started, and he still waited. It was not worth it!!
Fun Alternatives: The suggested alternative is to walk to the castles. It doesn't take that much longer, you may get a little winded, but it's worth the trip!
