“Great Italian food”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

It was a bit of a search, but it was worth it (we found the place on trip advisor). We went there for lunch. Unfortubately we could not order the famour gnocci, but both pastas were superb. The owner came to chat with us, he was so lovely. Very affordable (like all places in Berlin).

“A little taste of Sicily”
Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend & I visited the restaurant on Monday after reading all the excellent reviews, but the restaurant completely exceeded our expectations. The owner, Fabio is the perfect host, explaining the origins of each dish/ingredient. We sat outside on the terrace and enjoyed the sunshine with a glass of wine whilst sharing the antipasti (which was incredible). To follow I had the mushroom & leek gnocchi & he had the red wine tagliatelle. The food was so delicious that we stayed over an hour after we'd finished our mains to squeeze down some pudding (the berry pana cotta). All in all it was an incredible experience, Fabio & the other waiter went above and beyond to ensure we were happy (even charging my phone when the battery ran out) and the food was fantastic. My only regret is that we didn't discover this little gem until our last day. Will definitely be going back if we're in Berlin again.

“Beautiful food and great Sicillian atmosphere!”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

We visited this cosy little place on the last night of a great few days in Berlin. We were welcomed so warmly and genuinely by Fabio the owner that we felt at home immediately. He took plenty of time with us and every other customer - describing the menu and the ingredients with true passion and knowledge. We had the flavoursome Caponnata and delicious ragu polenta to start, followed by two gnocchi dishes. Fabio promised us light, fluffy gnocchi and these certainly were - a far cry from the stodgy ones we have eaten at home, We were too full to try the desserts but they sounded good! We thoroughly enjoyed our evening - both the food and the great service added up to a lovely experience. Do not go there if you are looking for a big, traditional Italian menu - no Spaghetti Bolognese here- but if you want tasty food, cooked simply and beautifully, and presented well give this little gem a try. you may even come away with holiday suggestions!

“DELIGHTFUL”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

We ate here twice during our visit to Berlin & were very pleased both times. The home made pasta is delicious, the mussels the best we have ever eaten, the wine list is short & well selected, prices are very fair for the quality of food & service.Owned by a Sicilian who is passionate & knowlegeable about food & wine.

“true italian!!!”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

We went there yesterday because of the reviews - we were not disappointed! If you're a meat lover or french cuisine fan, this is not for you. If you appreciate simple homemade italian food cooked to perfection it is THE place to go. The gnocchi is undoubtedly the best we have ever had!!
The place is small and a bit "kitsch", but the owner and staff make you feel right at home, as if they have allthe time in the world for you. We will definitely be returning
