Came in at 7.30 pm. We were seated, order taken and drinks brought over. Well over an hour goes by before we are asked if we have eaten yet, they then realise there's a mistake and put the order through (many guests around us have eaten 2 courses by this point). It comes out around 9pm, there is a hair... More

Nice place, excellent genuine Italian cuisine! I would recommend booking a table in advance, this place is pretty busy.

This Italian restaurant located a 5-minute walk from Potsdamer Platz on a quiet residential street provides a good location for Italian family dinner. The wait staff was very accommodating and seated our large party. We each ordered off the menu that included pizza, pasta, risotto, and seafood. My in-laws ordered and enjoyed the salmon while my wife and I shared... More

I went to this establishment yesterday and to be brutally honest i have never been treated with such disrespect. Table booked for half past 7 ordered our food which did not even turn up until 8.40. I spoke to the waiter which advised the restaurant was busy no apology offered. The table next to us who arrived the same time... More

Attentive, friendly staff - there was a short wait for a table, but we were kept informed all the time. Staff spoke a variety of languages, including excellent English. Delicious pizzas - my girlfriend and I both ordered pizzas, which were generously sized for the price (both under €10). Drinks were also reasonably priced. Overall: delicious food, friendly atmosphere, excellent... More

Took Trip Advisor reviews in to account & we're not disappointed. Really good atmosphere & friendly staff. I had a chicken dish wrapped in ham & mozzarella which was very tasty & well presented. The other members of the party were equally impressed with their choice. If you opt for the ham & mozerella starter you will need to think... More

Came in on recommendation from a nearby restaurant that had stopping serving. Despite being quite late, we were seated quickly by friendly staff who all spoke excellent English. Had pizza with beef, rocket and cheese and these was really good. Would recommend.

This place was really nice. The staff is very welcoming, friendly and knows how to handle guests. The food was good and the atmosphere very pleasant. Reservation went quick, the food took a bit longer but we were a group of 6 people.

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighbourhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
