Best pizza ever :-)

Had dinner there on two occasions. The service was pleasant, professional and efficient. Really tasty food and nice wine. The pizza was one of the best I ever had.

Situated opposite the Viktoria-Luise Platz U-Bahn station, this restaurant consistently offers excellent food and very friendly service. Intimate and appealing, German, Italian and English are all spoken. The prices are moderate and the non-menu specials are varied and delicious. Schoeneberg is my favourite part of Berlin and this restaurant is always on my list of places to eat. If you're... More

It is a great place to eat, as long as you don't want to have a serious conversation. Fun atmosphere, very young staff.

Lovely authentic Italian restaurant. The menu was lovely and varied, which made it difficult to decide what to go for, but we were more than happy with the food we ended up eating. We tried to get a table on the saturday, but no such luck and therefore we only had a quick bite to eat here before our train... More

Ribaltone is just a great place, unpretentious waiters, a really funny menu (though you should always ask for the daily specials as they are usually the best - calamarettini, swordfish roulades, lobster pasta and and and...). Really fair prices for the quality and service they offer - we are regular guests, bring always international visitors to that place and so... More

Don't get influenced by the outside. We walked by while nobody sat outside and thought this wasn't a good restaurant. The outside is a bit dark. But 5 minutes later, tripadvisor told us this is a good restaurant. We gave it a try and agree! A big menu and also too many dailyfresh choices to mention :-) We ate great... More

It's hard to say what was most special about this happening spot--the decadent stuffed pasta of the day (nuts and several rich cheeses) or the setting, a sidewalk table looking out on a pretty park with a fountain and a chorus of twittering birds. The only things we tried here were salads, both burstingly fresh, but I liked the look... More

Authentic Italian food, friendly waiting staff, it was a little cramped but it was valentines day. I highly recommend the Truffle pasta - best I've ever eaten! Amazing bottle of red and lemon chello to finish. Wonderful!

Neighborhood Profile
In 1963, Schöneberg was the center of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the center of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
