We visited this place once during the winter and sat indoors due to the weather. The space felt very confined and not very comfortable. The service was slow, and the pasta was average, nothing fancy. The prices were reasonable though, so for just getting something to eat, this is as fine as any other place. For much better pasta and atmosphere, try e.g. Spaghetti Western on Torstrasse, not too far from Al Dente.

The portions were very large and the food was delicious. The price was reasonable for the quality of the food. The waitress was very kind considering we did not speak Italian or German.

We have very mixed feelings about this restaurant. Our first visit there was a succes with friendly service and atmosphere. Had some lovely pasta and decided to come again. And so we did after a couple of days. We ordered one lovely pasta, very enjoyable. The other dish was gnocchi and unfortunately I found a piece of plastic on my plate. When pointing this out to the waiter, there was no apology, no discount in the bill not to talk about any free coffee or desert as compensation. We had planned to recommend this restaurant to our friends who visit Berlin very often but cannot do so after this. Very sad.

This restaurant was recommended by a travel website for it's lunchtime menu. We were in the right area at lunch time and, although neighbouring restaurants offered a cheaper lunch menu, we though we'd give this a go. For 6.90euro you get a soup and then a spaghetti dish. I have to say the food was lovely. The soup was tasty and served with warm crusty bread. The spaghetti was more then just pasta in sauce...it was real Italian cuisine! We had some wine which again was well priced and very nice. The interior is beautiful and they played 30's jazz which gives a fantastic atmosphere. The service was also very good and we tipped (very good sign from us!) We had a look at the a la carte menu...the prices were ok by capital city prices but I'd come for the lunch menu which is an absolute steal! The restaurants around have menus at around 5euros but I think this place is worth an extra 2euros :-)
